When's the last time you had a birthday party?

For many of us, after adolescence we no longer celebrate birthdays the way we used to, with cake, balloons and tons of our friends around. PDG Carolyn Dorman thought the lack of celebration was a shame and worked together with other Lions in Multiple District 2 to throw one amazing birthday bash!

As a way to celebrate new members throughout Texas, PDG Dorman and a team of 16 Lions worked together to set up a birthday party for all the new members. The party was hosted at a local hotel and was filled with ice cream, cake, flags, horns and "100" balloons, to celebrate our centennial.

All 300 attendees got to witness a special induction ceremony where International President Bob Corlew inducted his daughter and son-in-law, and saw a special award presented to the longest serving Lion who was at the event!

Everyone had so much fun at the birthday party that they're planning one for next August! According to PDG Dorman the event, "was a great success with all the cake and ice cream Lions could eat!"

Consider throwing a party for your members, or celebrating in a different way.

Since 1988, Lions World Sight Day has raised awareness about the importance of eye health and the need for quality eye care services for all. On this special day of service, Lions clubs around the world conduct sight-related projects including: vision screenings, eyeglass donations, restorative surgeries, eye health education programs, and the donation of assistive devices to those with vision impairment.

Lions World Sight Day is traditionally held in the month of October. This year, Lions are encouraged to organize their Lions World Sight Day activities in conjunction with the Lions World Wide Week of Service in Sight.
