Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world every day because they share a core belief – to serve their community.
Our motto is “We Serve.”
The Lions of Central Mass (District 33-a) held a poster contest last fall with the theme of “Peace Through Service “. This contest is part of an international program for the lions in which thousands of children throughout the world participate by creating posters with a common theme. Our District and state winner this year is Mikay Batiste, a student attending Assumption School in Millbury. Mikay is sponsored by the Millbury Lions Club. The Millbury Lions held an Award ceremony on the steps of the Assumption School on February 11 during which time Mikay was recognized for her outstanding work in creating the winning poster. As a state winner Mikay’s poster has been sent to the Lions international headquarters in Illinois for the next level of judging. Also present for the ceremony were Lions Denise Andrews District Governor, Jeanne Lillie Millbury Lions President and Diane Seely Uxbridge Lions President and Peace Poster Chairperson. And from the Assumption School, Principal Julie Olson and Art Teacher Ann Marie Tutela.
The Peace Poster contest is held each fall by local Lions clubs and is open to students aged 11,12 and 13 years of age. Posters are judged on originality, artistic merit and expression of the theme. It encourages young people to think about peace, creativity express what it means to them and share their unique visions with the world.
