LEO CLUB MEMBER ASSISTING AT THE CARE PROJECT

The Antigua Leo Club celebrates its 46 year anniversary today. (September, 12th 2018).

The Leo Club is a project of the Antigua Lions Club.

Since the club’s chartering in 1972, its members have worked on a variety of projects in the local community, such as eye screening, tree plantings, community and beach clean ups, public bathroom refurbishment, youth jamborees, pediatric ward visits, the annual Boxing day lunch that feeds persons on the street, just to name a few.  Proceeds from past fundraising events have gone to all our projects.

According to Leo Nazim Williams Club President, “We are proud of our club’s 46 years of service to the community. The Leo club members thank everyone who contributes to this important work. You are truly helping Leos make a difference in our community.”  The Club recognized their achievement, by attending church on Sunday and delivering food packages to underprivileged persons.  Other activities will include tree planting at two schools, a beach clean-up and a team building social.

The Antigua Leo Club has 14 members and meets on Thursdays at 5:00 p.m. at the Lion’s Den. Leo clubs are a group of young men and women who identify needs within the community and work together to fulfill those needs. For more information or to get involved with the Antigua Leo Club, please contact Leo Nazim Williams at 268-771-3130 or send an email to Antigua.leos@gmail.com

The Leo Club Motto is Leadership, Experience, Opportunity, hence the Acronym LEO:

Leadership – Develop skills as a project organizer, time manager and team leader.
Experience – Learn how teamwork, cooperation and collaboration can bring exciting changes to your community and the world.
Opportunity – Make friends and feel the rewards of community service.

The Leo Club Program has continued to grow within the last 50 years. Leos now constitute an international network of over 6,500 clubs in over 140 countries. Community service remains the cornerstone of the program, fostering a lifetime commitment to helping others. Like their Lion counterparts, Leo club members enjoy serving their neighbors and watching positive results unfold.
