LYNDONVILLE – The Lyndonville Lions Club on Nov. 10 was proud and honored to host the induction of the latest chapter of its Leos club.

The Leo’s are a youth organization of Lions Club International. Leo Clubs encourage youths to develop leadership qualities by participating in social services and activities while fostering a commitment to community service.  The Leo’s are dependent on a Lions club to initiate and sponsor them, however the Leo’s otherwise conduct themselves as an independent organization.

Leadership, experience and opportunity are the qualities that make a Leo and together with their Lions sponsor form a powerful partnership while simultaneously exploring and initiating their own independent power of action.  The Lyndonville Leo’s club has already performed several community services within Lyndonville and the Town of Yates.

The current Leo’s are guided by Lyndonville Central School instructor, Gina Marker.

“Mrs. Marker is simply the perfect fit,” said Darren Wilson, the current Lions president. “I’m certain our entire Lions club agrees that no one better could have stepped into this role.”

And for the Leo’s, Wilson added, “They are a truly admirable talented group of young people who sync well together.”
