LCI International Peace Poster Contest

Celebrating 31 Years of Peace
For the last 31 years Lions clubs around the world have proudly sponsored the Lions International Peace Poster Contest in local schools and youth groups. This art contest for kids encourages young people worldwide to express their visions of peace.
The theme of the 2018-2019 Peace Poster Contest is "Kindness Matters." Students, ages 11, 12 or 13 as of November 15, are eligible to participate.   Each poster is judged on originality, artistic merit and expression of the theme.  Posters advance through several judging levels: local, district, multiple district and international. At the international level, judges from the art, peace, youth, education and media communities select one grand prize winner ($5000) and 23 merit award winners ($500).

1BK Candy Day Jamboree Flyer (on 9-26-18)

Hello 1-BK Lions,


Attached is the flyer for the 1-BK Candy Day Jamboree on Wednesday, September 26, 2018 at the Marseilles Lions Hall, 511 Commercial St, Marseilles, IL 61341.  If you plan to have dinner at the Jamboree, you must submit a food reservation form that is attached to CT Bird Combs by Sunday, September 23.


All club Secretaries should have received a packet from the Foundation office a few weeks ago with all the details about Candy Day and an order form for candy and supplies.  It’s very important to submit your club’s Candy Day order for candy to the Foundation office so an adequate supply of candy will be

brought to the Jamboree.


Your Foundation Trustees John “Pickles” Pajkos, PDG and Lion Joe Krenkel hope to see an overflow crowd at the Jamboree.  District 1-BK has one of the better attended Jamborees and Lion Mike’s prime rib is out of this world.


Please send in your food reservations early.  Payment may be made at the door, but CT Bird still needs your club’s meal reservations to insure enough food is available.


If you have any questions, contact Trustees John or Joe or CT Bird.


Glenn “Bird” Combs, PDG

1-BK Cabinet Treasurer
