The Manheim Township Lions Club thanks veterans for their service and is offering local U.S. veterans a special opportunity to serve their community.

The Involve a U.S. Veteran Program is a nationwide initiative sponsored by Lions Clubs International that offers qualified U.S. veterans an entrance fee waiver of up to $30 when joining a local Lions club. The waiver is available to the first 5,000 U.S. veterans, and the program has been extended beyond June 30, 2015.

Eligible veterans include Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard personnel who are retired or were honorably-discharged from these services. National Guard and Reserve personnel who were called to active duty for other than training (persons may still be enlisted in these services) and other personnel the U.S. services consider a veteran are also eligible.

Lions clubs work as a team to get things done and we need veterans like you on our team. Serving your community can make an impact on people’s lives.

Clubs Donate Curriculum Materials to the Manheim Township School District


2015 marks the twelfth 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 the first grade 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.
