In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the Lion sleeps.... but never in Norwich

Sir Charles II is introduced to the Norwich Lions Club

This Lions den is always busy (several functions combined into this one story)

I am writing this to let you know that The Norwich Lions have not been sleeping in the den. I have included a you tube video with the song that states otherwise. Watch the  video if you wish and then continue on to the photo essay which will show you some of our recent activities. I have combined several meetings into one story with the photo caption explaining the event.

Traveling Lion Tourism guideA primary mission of the district is to "UNITE the clubs (of district 45) in the bonds of friendship, good fellowship and mutual understanding". Toward that end the Traveling Lion competition was created. Please note that nothing in these competition rules says that you should hide your good silverware before the neighbors come to visit...

Traveling Lion

There are five (5) Lions to be captured in this contest. One Lion will be a district wide Lion that can travel anywhere in District 45. Four Regional Lions will travel throughout their respective regions

For the purpose of this contest the Host Club is defined as the club conducting the meeting and who has the Lion before it is awarded to the Traveling Club.

What is the Melvin Jones Fellowship? That question is best answered in terms of individuals whose lives have been enriched by humanitarian projects. Projects made possible by donations to Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) for the Melvin Jones Fellowship Program.

The fellowship, which was created in 1973, takes its name from the founder of Lions Clubs International (LCI), Melvin Jones. It is an honor--not an award.

The fellowship was established as LCIF’s highest form of recognition to acknowledge an individual’s dedication to humanitarian service. • Fellowship donations are largely responsible for successfully launching the Lions’ aggressive global attack on preventable and curable blindness--the LCIF Sight First program.
