Lions Clubs Across the Country Promote Educational Development

Lions Clubs International has been a dedicated sponsor of The Dictionary Project for many years. Clubs across the United States have worked diligently to continue their local projects and we greatly appreciate their participation. We would like to highlight a few clubs and the work they have accomplished in their communities.

First Year to Volunteer: Colona Township Lioness Club


The Colona Township Lioness Club decided to start a dictionary project after Ray Parish of the Orion Lions Club came to speak to their members. He shared the success of his club’s project in Orion, Illinois and the Lady Lions were convinced their community would benefit from the program as well. Photo submitted by Lion Donna Hakeman.
