Activities and Fund raising
One of our the most profitable activity is Christmas magazine Karvian Joulu. To the magazine lions gather articles from voluntary writers of our community. On the one hand it gives local writers a change to publish their texts and pictures. On the other hand it gives to public a hihg-quality magazine that introduces events of the past year in our home town.
LC Karvia has donated equipment to home for elderly. In there we arrange a Christmas party. Santa visits and our ladies serve coffee and Chrismas goodies.
We are supporting younger generations by donations and scholarships. We have given local children a chance to take part to the Peace Poster Contest. In winter time we have arranged a sleding day for kids when there is any snow.
In the darkest time of year LC Karvia together with our parish arranges a service in the woods. Lions make campfires and ladies serve coffee.
Our club has donated a lot also to the LCIF and gotten several Melvin Jones Fellowships to its active lions.
Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with more than 1.4 million members in approximately 46,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world.
