The Lions of Polk County are looking for young people wanting to serve their community to form a LEO Club for 12-18 year olds. The first organizational meeting held in December netted 12 students. However, 20 to 25 students are needed to form the club. The next meeting is slated for 7 p.m. Monday at First Baptist Church at 106 Colt Rd. in Livingston.
As it will be a community-based LEO Club, homeschoolers, Christian school students and students from any school in Polk County are welcome to participate.
The LEO Club will be set up just like a Lions Club. The students will be supervised in their activities, but the students will decide what type of projects they want to do for their community and the fundraisers that they will hold to help them accomplish their goals. They will have officers and they will be involved in leadership training that will ensure their future successes.
Being a member of a LEO club provides an opportunity to make new friends, become a leader, experience teamwork and team building, participate in fun service projects, beef up a resume, help the needy, help the special needs children at the Texas Lions Camp and much, much more.
For those interested in joining the club or to obtain additional information, contact Bobbie Fagan at 936-967-0740.
