HISTORY OF THE LIONS OF ENTEBBE
LIONS CLUB OF ENTEBBE was chartered in August 2002. It used to exist in the seventies but problems within the country resulted in in-activity and its demise. The Legacy of the Lions of the 1970's was a LIONS CHILDREN'S PARK in Town. The designs of the park were accessed by the current Lions from Entebbe Municipality and it is slowly been renovated. The challenges for the club are many but it will rise to meet these as they surface.
