Welcome to the
Another Season EndsSaturday morning, August 2nd, campers departed as friends from Camp Lions Manitowa. Some sighed, a few cried, but mostly they hugged shared and signed best wishes to each other. The campers also spoke of plans to contact their news friends, even planning a few events together when back home. But the phrase exchanged more than any other - I love Camp Lions, see you next year! Thank you Lions and Friends of Camp Lions for giving these youth a summer camp where they are posiitively charged on themselves. At Camp Lions self confidence, friendship, & personal strength are the outcome. And it is all due to your generosity Lions. "Adoptions" are still available if you or your club want to help fund a camper. Contact Lion Mario at mjg@LIFnd.org for details.

Addressing the Lions in 1925,
Helen Keller challenged them to become "Knights of the Blind in the Crusade against Blindness."
Today, with nearly 600 Clubs in Illinois, we continue to try to meet that challenge.
October is the traditional time for Lions to prowl the streets of Illinois greeting the public to say - Thank you for your support. This vital public event can not be done without preparation.
