Triet Hoang from California Phones will be the guest speaker at Milpitas Gateway Lions Club on Tuesday, December 2, commencing at 6:30 p.m. at Denny’s Restaurant, 333 S Abbott Ave, Milpitas, California, (Calaveras Blvd & I-880).
All are welcome to attend and hear how this free service can help improve telephone access for those with disabilities.
Every day, specialized California Phones from the California Telephone Access Program (CTAP) enable over half a million Californians to stay connected.
There’s a California Phone for every need. For example, there are amplified phones that make it easier to hear conversations. Big button phones that are easier to dial. Phones with lights that flash for incoming calls. Convenient portable phones – and more. We also offer phones that are specially designed for individuals with more significant disabilities.
California Phones are available to persons who live in California, have telephone service* and their doctor or other qualified professional approves their need.
As you know, when a new club is chartered, The Association of International Lions Clubs (LCI) issues them a tax exempt status under a “blanket” authorization by the IRS and I believe that they also provide the federal tax ID#. This covers their 501c4 activities, which is a tax exempt, membership organization. Clubs are required to segregate funds received from the members in a separate account from funds received from the public (anyone who is not a member of that club or from any other organization). Those funds received from non-members are treated the same as if they were being administered in a charitable foundation with the primary difference being that they cannot offer the donors a tax deduction.
The Lions Environmental Photo Contest provides a way for Lions to portray, through an original photo, their pride and commitment to improving, protecting and preserving the environment. Every Lion from a club in good standing can enter a photograph of his or her immediate surroundings into the club-level Lions Environmental Photo Contest. Club contest winners are submitted to the District and District winners are submitted to MD-4 NO LATER THAN January 15.
This year’s Lions Environmental Photo Contest includes the following five categories:
- Animal life
- Plant life
- Urban or natural landscape
- Weather phenomenon
- Special theme: Lions’ Pride in our Environment
- Capturing the magnificent beauty and grandeur of our natural environment
