The Service Projects The Chelmsford Lions Club Support:
International Peace Poster Contest
Celebrating 30 Years of Peace
For the last 30 years Lions clubs around the world have proudly sponsored the Lions International Peace Poster Contest in local schools and youth groups. This art contest for kids encourages young people worldwide to express their visions of peace.
To celebrate our 30th anniversary, we have an updated look and encourage every Lions club to engage with the youth in their community to sponsor a Peace Poster Contest entry.
The theme of the 2017-2018 Peace Poster Contest is "The Future of Peace." Students, ages 11, 12 or 13 as of November 15, are eligible to participate.
Youth Speech Contest
Our Youth Speech Competition provides an opportunity for students in Grades 9,10,11 and 12 to speak publicly and freely on a designates topic of interest. The competition starts at the club level and ends at the state convention. The winner at the state convention wins $1,500.00
I am the membership chairman and I realize everyone is busy with their lives but the time commitment for being a member of the Chelmsford Lions Club is minimal. I personally put in 20 hours per year outside the regular monthly meeting. I run the Peace Poster Contest and help with Fourth of July Fair and the Fall Fair. This is not a major time commitment. I enjoy the social aspect of the meeting and getting together to try to make Chelmsford a better community and to help the less fortunate.
The club members have fun at the meetings and it is a welcome respite from the daily grind of life.
I hope to see you at the next meeting. For Further Information please call 603-417-2140 or email email@example.com
