What is The Franklin Pride? Franklin Pride, (Formally Lion Cubs), is an off shoot of Franklin Lions. The group focuses on learning how to help others and how others help them. They learn thru crafts and guest speakers. Unlike Cub Scouts or Girls Scouts, The Franklin Pride aren’t expected to sell anything and they don’t earn badges and there is no dues! They earn respect for community leaders, servicemen, parents, teachers, family and all others, especially friends!
The group is sponsored by The Dance Studio and Franklin Lions. This is a FREE Group! There is a cost for T-Shirts (done locally!). If you have any questions or would like to sign up, contact Cheryl Hobbs at firstname.lastname@example.org. This group is open to Boys and Girls ages 4-9. Sign up ends 7/1/18-Limited space! The Frankin Pride meets every other Thursday and they follow the Franklin Public School calendar.
Lions are men and women who help people in need in their local and world communities. For more than 90 years, Lions have served wherever need exists. The association was founded by a man named Melvin Jones in Chicago, Illinois in 1917. Mr. Jones felt that volunteering your time to serve those in need was an important responsibility, so he created Lions clubs to give people opportunities to volunteer. Helping the blind became the Lions primary service objective after Helen Keller, who was both blind and deaf, challenged the Lions to become “knights of the blind” during their international convention in 1925.
Lions are involved in helping the blind and so much more. They volunteer their time to enhance their com- munities, improving the lives of children, adults and senior citizens. They help Special Olympics athletes and people with diabetes. They also work with other groups, such as Habitat for Humanity, to build houses for those in need.
Adult Lion Meetings are held every month-the 2nd Wednesday at Alumni 7pm
Our meeting consist of what we have accomplished and what is ahead for helping our Community. As always, if you have any questions-don't hesitate to ask!
