Involve a Veteran Program - Reminder of the ongoing Involve a Veteran Program.  

Veterans have made so many contributions and sacrificed so much to serve their countries. With many service members returning home from serving in the military, this is a good time to provide them with an opportunity to get involved. Veterans have a lot to offer, including practical and leadership skills, a strong sense of dedication and commitment and they know what it means to be part of a team.  Ask now! The Veteran Program runs from July 1, 2013 until June 30, 2017. Join the 700 clubs that have already taken advantage of the program and given veterans the opportunity to continue serving, as a Lion.  Visit http://members.lionsclubs.org/EN/lions/invite-members/us-veteran-program.php  for more details.
