White Cane Days - October 14 and 15. 2016

The familiar white cane with a red band at the bottom is used by blind and visually impaired persons in many countries. As a result of a 1964 congressional resolution, the President of the United States annually issues a proclamation designating October 15th as "National White Cane Safety Day." Lions Clubs help to increase awareness of the use of the white cane and laws governing its use.

To further that effort, on October 14 and 15 the Manheim Township Lions will be out soliciting funds to be used exclusively for the support of sight-related projects including the SightLife, formerly the Northeast Pennsylvania Lions Eye Bank, Leader Dog, Pennsylvania Lions Beacon Lodge Camp and VisionCorps, formerly the Susquehanna Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Thanks to the following site sponsors for their support – A.C. Moore, Savemart and Stauffers of Kissel Hill, Oregon Pike.

IMG3639 Scaled Croped

2016 marks the thirteenth year that the Manheim Township Lions Club in partnership with the Manheim Township Leo Club and Lions District 14-D has donated Lion’s Quest curriculum materials to the Manheim Township School District. The Manheim Township Leo Club Seniors would have been in kindergarten when this program was first introduced. Lions Quest is a life skills and drug prevention program of Lions Clubs International Foundation, which has been implemented in more than 50 countries around the world.

The most widely used of the three Lions Quest programs, Skills for Adolescence, is taught as part of the sixth grade curriculum. This program helps youth, parents and teachers cope with the physical, emotional and social challenges of the early adolescent years. It is a comprehensive life skills and drug prevention curriculum that emphasizes character development, communication, decision making, and service-learning guiding young people toward healthy choices and a drug, alcohol and violence-free lifestyle.

Adopt-A-Highway & Adopt-A-Road Pickup - May 14, 2016


Adopt-A-Highway offers Pennsylvania citizens the opportunity to show their pride in our beautiful state by caring for the environment. We all know that a more attractive Pennsylvania is more attractive to our citizens, tourists and to businesses.

Food wrappers, aluminum cans, newspapers and cigarette packs. From the city to the countryside, this is the trash that many careless people leave on Pennsylvania’s highways and roads. It is not a pretty sight, and it certainly does not make a good impression on people who are traveling through our area.

This is the twenty-second year that the Manheim Township Lions Club has participated in the Pennsylvania Adopt-A-Highway and Manheim Township’s Adopt-A-Road programs. We have adopted the Fruitville Pike from Route 30 north to the Township line and Hess Boulevard from the Fruitville Pike to the Lititz Pike. During our last pickup on May 14 we collected two bags of litter, two bags of recyclables, one small pine tree, one truck universal joint and two quarters from these roads.
