Wayland Area News
Lions serve worldwide
Wayland Lion Brian Pattyson provides news releases from the national and international Lions Clubs organizations which are of interest to members and non-members alike. Perhapes some of the news might pique your interest in becoming a member of a local Lions Club.
The 2013 Leo Lion Summit will take place at the 2013 Lions Clubs International Convention in Hamburg, Germany. WACO has a Leo Club sponsored by the three local Lions Clubs of the school district: Crawfordsville Lions, Olds Lions and Wayland Lions.
May is Lions Recycle for Sight Month. Local Lions clubs will collect old eyeglasses for recycling. The Wayland Lions have collection boxes at City Hall and in churches and businesses in the city. You can contribute your old eyeglasses (including sunglasses and reading glasses) for optical missions to developing countries.
Be aware: scam alert
Recently there have been a number of phone and email scams involving Lions. One member bought into an email scam and lost $2,700. Another member received a bogus check.
Unfortunately, if you lose money in a scam, there is no legal recourse and no way to recover your money. If you want to donate to LCIF, you can do that through your local Lions Clubs.
