SP Lions Club Celebrates World Service Day
Wednesday, October 12th, 2011
Annually, Lions Club International celebrates World Service Day on October 8th. On Ambergris Caye, the San Pedro Lions Club observed World Service Day on October 11th with the planting of over 55 trees. The tree planting initiative on World Service Day coincided with the Lions Club International President Wing-Kum Tam’s goal of planting 1 million trees worldwide during his presidency.
The local Lions partnered with the San Pedro Roman Catholic School in planting 55 trees that not only helped toward the tree-planting initiative but helped in making the school grounds greener, healthier and a more attractive area. The students were paired off and were given a tree to plant which they will both take care of during the course of this school year.
