The Leo Club of Dominica, a Youth Arm of the Lions Clubs, is celebrating its twenty-sixth anniversary today Monday.
To celebrate its anniversary, the Leo Club of Dominica started off with a church service at the St. Alphonsus Catholic Church.
After the church service, president of the Leo Club, Lissana Dyer gave a short interview with vibes Radio describing their agenda for the week.
“We have a variety of other activities for the week including donating sanitization and health necessities hamper to the infirmary,” she explained.
The club will also be visiting a preschool to teach life skills that can be used for hobbies later on.
According to Dyer, the aim for this week is giving awareness to the club and what it’s about through outreach and different radio programs.
She added, “so look out for us the Leo Club as we serve the community and the less fortunate.”
When asked what does it mean to her to give back to the community she said, “I honestly feel that the elderly are an important part of the community, they are the ones who paved the way for us young people, and it means so much to me to give back. It’s the least that we can do so we look forward to doing that all week.”
The club also donated a food hamper to an elder in the community of Goodwill in light of the theme set by the Dominica Council on Ageing, “The Elderly: Surviving the Pandemic.”
