Lions Youth Exchange Program 

The Lions Youth Exchange Program is one of Lions’ International's biggest peace programs. In order to make our goal a reality, we must find students to go on this program. We also need host families who are willing to take these students during the summer for a two week period. Without your help in promoting this program, our dream may never occur. The program is open to anyone between the ages of 15 ½ to 21 years old. It is a natural progression for all students participating in our student speaker contests and our Leos to go onto the Lions ’Youth Exchange program. The more Lions programs we can keep our children involved in, the greater our chances of them becoming Lions themselves. 

As for our Peace Poster contestants, although they are a little young for this program now, all Peace Poster committee people should relate the Youth Exchange Program to them. This is so they can “save their pennies and get excited about participating in this program. 

Please download and make as many copies as possible of the attached Youth Exchange Flyer to give out to all students you meet. 
Please also go onto our website at MD4Lions.org and click on “YouthExchange” for a better "Understanding" of this program. 

Thank you Lion Eileen

Los Angeles International Lions Laughlin Fundraiser Trip 

Plans are progressing ahead for a club-sponsored fundraiser bus trip to Laughlin, Nevada. 

The event will run from Sunday, September 28 through Tuesday, September 30. 

While in Laughlin, attendees will stay for two nights at the Riverside Hotel Resort and Casino. 

Cost for the trip, which includes bus transportation, lodging and some meals, is $125 per person for those sharing a room and $150 for those preferring to stay in a room by themselves. 

Gambling and evening entertainment shows are extra. 

Aboard the bus there will be bingo games, plenty of food and liquid refreshments, and even movies. Also aboard, a clubsponsored World Series board (another fundraiser) will be circulated.

Serving as overall coordinator for the Laughlin fundraiser is Diann Wirth. 

The Laughlin fundraiser is being held in lieu of the club’s annual Chinese New Year fundraiser, which was not held this year because of scheduling difficulties involving the Golden Dragon.

Guidelines to Co-operating with Thieves 

If, at dissolution, any of the remaining funds are going to a charitable non-profit 501©(3) organization (such as LCIF, LPCCI, Lions in Sight etc.) then the club is required to file a Form RRF-1 (http://oag.ca.gov/sites/all/files/agweb/pdfs/charities/charitable/rrf1_form.pdf)with the Registry of Charitable Trusts, a division of the Attorney General’s office. If the club hasn’t registered yet, they would need to file a form CT-1(http://oag.ca.gov/sites/all/files/agweb/pdfs/charities/charitable/ct1-form.pdf). 

 This is an annual filing with the Registry of Charitable Trusts and the RRF-1 would be filed along with a copy of the club’s Form 990. For some clubs who do not file the 990 or 990-EZ because their total receipts are less than $50,000, they would simply file the RRF-1 alone with no attachments. There is also a fee to go with this based on the gross receipts of the club though it is not significant and it is based on the level of gross receipts that are reported on the Form 990.
