New Leo Club at SHS
Amanda Edgar, a grade 12 student at SHS, is hoping to start a new service club at Sydenham. Leo Clubs are junior affiliates of Lions’ Clubs, intended for people aged 12-18, who are interested in meeting new people and contributing to their communities, both local and international. The club motto is: ‘Leadership, Experience and Opportunity ," and their goal is "to provide the youth of the world an opportunity for development and contribution, individually and collectively, as responsible members of the local, national and international community."
Edgar, who belonged to a Leo club in Chalk River before moving to South Frontenac, said club participation can count as community service hours, and described various events the Chalk River group had organized, including dances, roadside garbage pick-ups and cancer fundraisers.
The SHS Leo Club will be sponsored by the Sydenham and District Lions Club: they plan to meet every second Tuesday evening: the first meeting will be Tuesday, February 27, 7:00 pm, at SHS: everyone welcome.Other Stories this Week View RSS feed
