"World of Service"

As part of this year's "In a World of Service" theme, Lions are challenged to participate in the Reading Action Program to focus on increasing literacy and access to learning resourses through their service. Each Lions Club that documents a reading or other literacy activity through the online service activity reporting system will receive the specially designed "Reading Action Program " club banner.
