For the first time in our club’s history and partnering with The Mount Vernon Area Arts Council, we have decided to participate in the Lions Club International Peace Poster Contest. The Peace Poster Contest was created in 1988 to give young people ages 11-13, the opportunity to creatively express their feelings for world peace and to share their visions with the world. Approximately 600,000 children from 75 countries participate in the contest annually. This years theme is "Kindness Matters." We are looking forward to what are students in the middle school will create.
