Serving the needs of the Northville Community

Northville Lions in the Community
Lions serving Lions
At our January meeting we had a guest from the Livonia Lions Club Lion Allison Johnson, Secretary of the Livonia Lions. She noted that the Livonia Lions Club have been impressed by our efforts to grow our membership and the level of support on various Club activities the Northville Lions provided to help produce a successful outcome.

The Livonia Lions wanted to express their appreciation for that assistance in a very big way.  Allison Johnson presented Clay Galarneau, President of the Northville Lions Club with a check for $3,000 to be used in our community to further the impact we will have.
Northville Lions Club Sponsors Annual Peace Poster Contest
For over three decades, Lions clubs around the globe have been sponsoring a very special art contest in schools and youth groups. Each year, about 350,000 11-, 12- and 13-year-old students from around the world share their visions of peace through the HYPERLINK "http://www.lionsclubs.org/EN/our-work/youth-programs/peace-poster-contest/index.php"Lions International Peace Poster Contest.
The sixth-grade students at Northville’s Hillside and Meads Mill middle schools have regularly participated in the annual Peace Poster contest. Creating peace posters gives the students the chance to express their visions of peace and inspire the world through art and creativity.
The winning posters are first selected at the club level and then judged at the district and multiple district levels before the final judging at the international level of competition.
This year the theme was “The Journey to Peace” and the local students submitted over 300 creative and imaginative posters to the Northville Lions Club. The student’s posters were evaluated for expression of the theme, artistic merit and originality. An awards ceremony was held at the Northville District Library on Wednesday January 15th to recognize those students that created the winning posters. The first place winner at Hillside was Natalie Yee, she also place third in the District competition.  The second place winner at Hillside was Abhinavi Yenduri. The first place winner at Meads Mill went to Kevin Yu, he also place second in the District competition. The second place winner at Meads Mill was Junhee Hong.
The actual posters are on display at the Northville Community Center and the Northville Public Library. To see all the posters submitted by the Northville students you can go the photo gallery posted on the Northville Lions Club website at HYPERLINK "http://www.northvillelionsclub.org"
