NFB-NEWSLINE is happy to announce the addition of LION Magazine, the 
publication of the Lions Clubs International, to our list of magazines.

This magazine, published eleven times a year (July and August are 
combined) represents the services rendered by Lions Clubs 
International throughout the United States and the world. In over two 
hundred countries, in hospitals and senior centers, in regions 
battered by natural disaster, in schools and eyeglass recycling 
centers, Lions are doing community volunteer work, helping, leading, 
planning, and supporting. Because Lions Clubs are local, they serve 
the unique needs of the communities they live in. Lions Clubs support 
sight programs and services including vision screenings, eye banks 
and eyeglass recycling, provide eye care services to those at risk of 
losing their sight, and raise donations through campaigns like 
SightFirst and Campaign SightFirst II.

Lions Clubs believe everyone deserves a healthy life. From providing 
health programs that focus on hearing loss to supporting efforts to 
control and prevent diabetes, Lions volunteers are working to improve 
the health of children and adults around the world.

Lions empower the next generation. Whether it's providing youth 
volunteer opportunities and leadership experiences in a Leo club or 
sharing a message of peace through the Peace Poster contest, Lions 
Clubs' youth programs invest in the future by reaching out to young people.

Lions Clubs serve local communities and protect the planet. From 
performing hands-on community work and service projects to providing 
emergency assistance, Lions Clubs' community and environment programs 
improve communities and protect the environment.

LION Magazine promotes the service of the Lions Clubs around the 
world and their philosophy of "We Serve." It is full of articles 
about successful service programs and the people who help achieve these goals.

LION Magazine can be found by pressing "7" off the main menu for 
"Magazines," then press "6" for "General Interest."


NFB-NEWSLINE, a service of the National Federation of the Blind

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the 
characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise 
the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create 
obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life 
you want; blindness is not what holds you back.
