Help Needed for Video Production Project

Our district is working with a local media management company to help us promote our local Lions Clubs and our activities. The end result will be 2 promotional videos featuring our Lions and talking about Lions in our district, Westmoreland County. In addition, they will be producing additional testimonial videos approximately monthly. The purpose is to establish a presence on social media that shows people who we are and what we do. There are lot of misconceptions out there about Lions and we want to change that.

LCIF Chairperson: Lion Zach Mesher

Hello fellow Lions! I am proud to be serving as your District 14-E Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) Chairperson this year. I am very excited to share with you all of the goings-on at LCIF. Please let me know if your club would be interested in hearing a presentation on LCIF, and we can find a date that works.

As we start a new Lions year, I challenge each of your clubs to come up with some ideas to increase your donations to LCIF over the year. Perhaps you can advertise that the proceeds from one of your existing fundraisers will directly benefit a specific LCIF project, such as the Measles Initiative or the Special Olympics Opening Eyes Program.   read more…
