National Volunteer Week

April 6-12 is National Volunteer Week.  President Obama's proclamation states, in part, "Through countless acts of kindness, generosity, and service, Americans recognize that we are all bound together -- that we move this country forward by giving of ourselves to others and caring for those around us."

Food Drive 2013.  Lions Allen, Becky, and Mike N.
This is a time for us to shine!  It's a time to demonstrate to the nation what Lions are all about!  What can you do this week to help someone?  What can we do as a club to make a difference?

This week take the time to look for ways you can make a difference.  It doesn't have to be something big or time consuming....  Maybe an elderly person needs help crossing the street or your child's school could use a volunteer for a project.  There's a lot of trash showing up along the roadways of Juneau, maybe walk around the block with a trash bag in hand.  There's a food donation box at Vintage Fare in the Nugget Mall that could use some food donations.   You get my drift.  It doesn't take much to help someone, to make a difference.

So come on!  This is a time to celebrate people doing extraordinary things through service!  Let us know how you served this week!  Click on the word "Comment" at the bottom of this post and leave us a note on your service this week.

We Serve!
Lion Nancy
