Lions are global minded men & women who donate their time & talent
for their community to make the world a better place to live

Lions Project Pride is a program for Canadian Lions Clubs to express their pride in Canada and in being a Lion. Lions have the opportunity to instill pride in their community by presenting a Canadian flag 12 cm by 24 cm (5" x 10") and a certificate to grade one students. The flag presentation represents the diversity of our country and the pride we have in being Canadian.

The opportunity to visit with a a group of Grade one students is a special reward. Lions from British Columbia to Newfoundland are distributing over 40,000 flags every year. We have had very favourable comments from students, teachers and parents.
