They have, on average, 60 members every academic year who work to make their community a better place.  For more information about the LEO Club visit their website at:

9.  Project Pride: Project Pride is a project in which Lion Club members visit Grade 1 classes in elementary schools and give them a presentation about having Pride in our country and how Lions Clubs contribute to this pride by the projects clubs have that help our local communities and our country.  At the end of the presentation the students are presented with a Project Pride Certificate and a Canadian Flag.  Unfortunately our club was not able to participate in Project Pride in 2020 because of COVID -19.  It appears that we may not be able to participate in Project Pride in 2021 either.

10.  City of Lethbridge Lions Parks: Our Club has volunteered to help clean litter from the two Lions Parks in the City.  Several times a year club members meet at the parks or visit the parks on their own to collect and look after the litter.  Members also inspect the equipment at the parks and report any issues to the City's Parks Department.  The Lions Parks in Lethbridge and their locations are:

Lions Centennial Park: located from 24 St. S. to Mayor Magrath Dr. between 19 Ave. S and 20 Ave. S. and

Norbridge Lions Park: located from 15 St. N. to 16 St. N. between 12 Ave. N. and 13 Ave. N.

11.  PlusOptix Vision Screening:  Our club has a camera like device that checks a person's vision.  Screening takes just a few seconds, involves no contact with the child and provides a "Pass" or "Refer" result instantaneously.  We do vision screening once a year in the Horizon School District and also at Raymond Elementary and Huntsville School.
