Holliston Lions Welcome International Guest

by Doreen Martel
October 25, 2018

At their October dinner meeting, the Holliston Lions Club was honored to welcome 2nd Vice District Governor Dr. Deb Wayne from the Malden Lions Club. However, while 2nd VDG Wayne traveled across Massachusetts to visit, it was an international visitor who stole the show. Second Vice District Governor Strong Lu is a member of the China Shenzhen Huang Gang Lions Club. 

China currently has 46,382 members in 1,344 Lions clubs in 14 districts making it one of the fastest growing areas in the world of Lionism. Lions Clubs individually serve their own communities, but they are also an international organization focused on eradicating blindness. Lu is currently attending Harvard Kennedy School as a visiting fellow during the 2018-2019 academic year studying the impact of Lions both inside and outside the organization.

If you are interested in learning more about how Lions Clubs impact their community, contact Lion Steve Apesos, the current membership chair for the Holliston Lions Club at apesossteve@gmail.com.
