‘Involve A Veteran’ program

CORBIN — The “Involve a U. S. Veteran” program is a nationwide initiative, sponsored by Lions Clubs International, which offers qualified U.S. veterans an entrance fee waiver of up to $30 when joining a local Lions Club. The waiver is available to the first 5,000 veterans and the program runs through June 30, 2015.

Eligible veterans include Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard personnel who are retired or were honorably discharged from these services. National Guard and Reserve personnel who were called to active duty for other than training (people may still be enlisted in these services) and other personnel the U.S. services who are considered a veteran are also eligible.

Lions Clubs International is the largest service organization in the world. Its 1.35 million members in more than 46,000 clubs are serving communities in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the globe.

Since 1917, Lions Clubs have aided the blind, and visually impaired, championed youth initiatives and strengthened local communities through hands-on service and humanitarian projects. For more information, go to www.lionsclubs.org.

Laurel Community Lions Club invites veterans to join our dedicated group. There is something for everyone. Areas of need are: leadership, fundraising, community service projects, developing LEO youth clubs, setting up/manning booths at events, membership outreach, clerical, sight conservation projects, and “tail twisting” to keep the meetings lively.
