Dear Club Leader,
Lions are known for bringing uncommon kindness to the world, but what is your club known for in your community? I am sure that you are doing so much more than your community knows, providing valuable service, creating opportunities for caring men and women to give back, and changing lives in ways that most don’t see. Technology offers so many ways to share our story with our community, and social media is one of the most effective.
Social media can help you instantly connect with your community. With more than 4.8 billion mobile devices around the world, we have the ability to speak directly to our communities. You can share your success stories, promote new projects and inspire others to serve with you. When you report your service on MyLCI or your regional reporting system, we can shine a light on the work of Lions in ways never before possible. Local media outlets are also monitoring social media to find stories they want to share with their readers. We are good news, and that’s something the world needs more of these days.
I believe that when others see the tremendous work we’re doing, they will want to be a part of it. We know there is nothing like the feeling of helping others. Your service stories can help bring this feeling to life. And social media can help bring these stories to your community.
I encourage you to use all the tools at hand to share the Power of We with our communities.
Sincerely,Dr. Naresh AggarwalYour International President

At the District 14-B Lions Annual Spring Meeting on April 29th, 2018, Lion Joe Erdeljac was awarded the distinguished Counsellor Award for his 44 years of service and leadership. 🏆
We admire and applaud Joe for his dedication and service. He remains our compass, and we all thank him for his many contributions to the Robinson Lions Club. 👏🏼
Every holiday season, we deliver Christmas Cheer to residents at the NHS Allegheny Valley School Stucco House. It warms our hearts to see their joy and to know we’re doing important work in the Robinson community. To learn more about everything that we do, come to a meeting and see what the Lions are all about!
In September 2017, the Robinson Lions Club attended the annual Robinson Township Fall Festival, raising money for leader dogs and guide dog programs for the blind and visually-impaired, as well as donating additional funds to hurricane and disaster relief programs through the Lions Clubs International Disaster Relief Fund.
We raffled off gift cards, a wine basket, and more, as well as selling toy brooms and house brooms that were hand-crafted by individuals with disabilities — one of our standard fundraisers.
Please enjoy our photos, here. (You can also still order brooms via our website and Facebook page!)
Current Robinson Lions Club members Ashley Boynes-Shuck and Sharon Boynes were mentioned in the May 2017 issues of the LION magazine and The Cauldron newsletter. Late Lion Leon Louis (originally misspelled in the publication as ‘Lewis’,) was also mentioned.
You can read the article online, here.
The Lions Clubs International picks one or two people to feature in the One Of Us section in each one of the 11 issues per year. This will be in both the print and online editions.
The print version of the LION Magazine goes out to over 1.4 million Lions Club members worldwide. This magazine is printed in 20 languages and has 32 editions — it’s even printed in braille!
An apology and correction will be issued in the July 2017 print issue due to the initial misspelling of Lion Lee’s name. It has since been corrected in the online version.
Attention, residents of Robinson Township!
Happy Spring! — It’s that time of year again!
So keep an eye out for your order form, or print an order form online, here, and directly mail us your payment and your order.
Please note that we no longer carry 30-gallon garbage bags; we now only sell 33-gallon bags.
Please also take note of our newest item for sale: toy brooms! They’re back and more popular than ever.
We’re also proud to announce that this year, all of the brooms being made are made by people with vision loss and other disabilities.
Great products for a great cause! Place your order today: click here.
Thanks for your commitment to the Robinson Township Lions Club, Lion Joe! Great to have seen you in the December 2016 issue of the Cauldron!
The week before Christmas, the Robinson Township Lions Club visited residents of the NHS Allegheny Valley School’s Stucco House, delivering gifts and spreading good vibes of Christmas cheer. The annual tradition is one that is much-anticipated not only by the residents of the Allegheny School, but also by the Robinson Lions!
After raising nearly $500 at the Fall Festival, we decided as an organization to match the donation and give $1,000 to leader dogs for the blind. These guide dogs serve as not only companions but as “assistive devices” of sorts to persons with blindness or visual impairment. Guide dogs, leader dogs, service dogs, and therapy dogs are so important for many who are disabled or ill. We were happy to devote our time fundraising for such an important cause and are proud of the work we have done for leader dog organizations.
