What an incredible year it has been. A year ago, I asked you to commit to changing the world by setting bold, ambitious goals to meet the needs of our neighbors, our communities and our world—and you did!

 

I loved seeing the diversity of our clubs, members and service, and I wish I could have met every Lion and Leo because you are so inspiring. Your innovative ways of serving people and your passion for protecting the planet are at the heart of what it means to be a Lion.

The Lion year may be coming to an end, but our service continues. So, reflect on the impact of your service and the people you served—those unforgettable experiences are why we serve—then let’s get ready to take up new roles and create new opportunities to help more people in need. Let’s invite even more service-minded people to share the joy of being a part of Lions International.

It has been my greatest honor to serve as your international president. Thank you for an extraordinary year.

Yours in service,

Dr. Patti Hill

International President

There is strength in numbers. Throughout my 34 years of service, I’ve always been grateful for the close teamwork and friendships that I’ve experienced volunteering alongside my fellow Lions.

Teamwork generates fresh perspectives and inspires others to join the good work we do—work that would not be possible without your dedication to service, which is shared by Leos and Leo-Lions. When we bring young people into our clubs, everyone benefits. We can learn from one another, help even more people together and strengthen the future of our service.

So collaborate with your Leos, or start a new Leo club. Encourage young people in your circle to become Leos and Lions, so we can grow our clubs and grow together through our service.

Yours in service,

This incredible planet is our home and taking care of this earth starts with each of us. As we celebrate Earth Day on April 22, I encourage you to inspire others to join you in an environmental service project, such as planting trees, reducing waste or cleaning up a beach.

There are so many ways that you and your club can make a real impact on our planet, and we have great resources on our website that can help you get started. 

Caring for our environment is one of the most important issues that we’re facing, so let’s all work to ensure the health of our planet and of our communities so we can look forward to a brighter tomorrow.

Yours in service,

Every journey begins with the first step. Changing the World begins with Lions taking that bold first step together. We have the power to make the world a better place. It’s an incredible responsibility, one from which everyone benefits, including us.

I encourage you to take an important step by inviting new members to join us in service. More members mean more service and more ways to serve our communities. Real change is truly possible when we all join together and work toward a better world.

So, let’s give others the opportunity to change the world with us as Lions.

Yours in service,

Dr. Patti Hill

Every day, we’re changing lives for the better. With every life we change, we are Changing the World. The best part of our mission is that we’re doing it together, as a global community of caring and dedicated Lions and Leos.

The greatest gift we can give is our care and our kindness, and our kindness means even more to people and families in need during the holiday season. You can make the holiday season brighter by planning a project to fight hunger in your community or make a gift to our global foundation, LCIF.

 

Your contributions will make a profound difference in someone’s life.

Yours in service,

Dr. Patti Hill

You are making such a big difference in people’s lives every single day. Now imagine how much more your club could accomplish if everyone in your community knew of all the good they could do as part of your club.

Let’s show our pride in our clubs by shining a light on our service every day. We are the global leader in humanitarian service, and we need to make sure that our communities know how we serve and how they can participate.

 

Let’s use great marketing and communication to show our communities that we are changing lives—and that they can change the world with us by becoming Lions and Leos.

Yours in service,

Dr. Patti Hill

International President

When you give someone a drink of water, you can quench their thirst for a day. But by building a clean water system, you change their lives—and their community—for good. That is the kind of big, sustainable impact that our greatest partner, Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF), helps us make every single day.

Our foundation gives us the support we need to expand our service and support our growing membership. But just like every great partnership, that support works both ways. We support LCIF and LCIF supports us.

 

So, let’s keep serving, and let’s keep supporting great service at home and around the world with LCIF.

Yours in service,

Dr. Patti Hill

International President
