Guiding Lion Training

With the upcoming Extension Training in June, it’s time to certify some Guiding Lions. Are you interested in helping a new club find its way in the Lions world? Has it been more then 3 years since you were last certified as a Guiding Lion? Then come to our Guiding Lion training on May 5 at San Martin Lions Hall. We’ll be starting at 9AM and run until lunch time. We’re thinking about including lunch at the end of the training, and will post when we have that confirmed.

To RSVP or for more info, contact John Kelly at 408-910-6597 or
