(San Juan Lion Club President John Towson, along with Lisa Brown, Leo Club CO Chairperson and past Lion's President, Minnie Knych, are shown with the ten Charter members of the newly formed Lions Leo Club for San Juan Island.)

Future San Juan Leo Lions met at Friday Harbor High School last week before Spring break to discuss becoming the Charter Leo Lions Club Group for San Juan Island.

The mission of Lions Opportunities for Youth is: To provide the young people of the world with opportunities for achievement, learning, contribution and service, individually and collectively, through sponsorship of activities identified as best practices in the field of youth development.

The "San Juan Leo Lions" are a Youth Group, and will be sponsored by San Juan Lions, the island's first service organization on San Juan Island, beginning in 1962. Lions Club is an international of over 1.5 million members, with local membership over 80 men and women.

The Leo Clubs are also an International Club "...to provide the youth of the world (with) an opportunity for development and contribution, individually and collectively, as responsible members of the local, national and international community."

The ten initial Leo Charter Members for San Juan Island will provide a nucleus for teens to contribute their time, talents and service to San Juan Island.

The first Leo Club was formed in 1957 in Glenside, Pennsylvania and that group created the Leo acronym - Leadership, Equality, Opportunity (Equality was later changed to Experience.)
