Warm greetings to all the Lions.
Firstly, I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Lions Clubs International on this 100th Anniversary. It is truly an honour for me to be part of this centennial celebration.
For many years I have been involved in large number of publications on projects, be it printed or digital version. But honestly speaking, thus far, none is as exciting and as meaningful as this one – Lions Centennial Services Projects Legacy Book.
First of all, this is a publication to celebrate 100 years of service. It is not easy to come this far, especially for a global organization. Lions Clubs make it. Congratulations.
Secondly, one of the purposes of this publication is to compile all the signature or significant service projects of the clubs in District 308 B1 into a book, as an acknowledgement and appreciation to all the Lions for their wholehearted and unselfish service. In other words, it is a compilation of the collective efforts of all the members involved.
Thirdly, this publication itself could become a great tool to radiate positive energies; by showing to the world that there are so many things that we can do in order to make this world a better place. Regardless of the scale of the services, it will always provide the needy something that matters.
From the various write ups we see that kindness knows no boundaries. Lions are serving people of all races everywhere all the time. The saying is true “Where there is a need. There is a Lion”
By having the publication in both digital and printed version, we hope to reach more people and inspire them to come together and serve.
Lastly I sincerely thank Lions Clubs for giving me this opportunity to contribute. My gratitude goes to Dato’ Javern Lim for involving me in this great project and also PCC Wong Chang Wai for the guidance throughout the journey to make this book a reality.
