For over three decades, Lions clubs around the globe have been sponsoring a very special art contest in schools and youth groups. Last month, several members of our RTOERO assisted the Lions Club of SSM in a wonderful opportunity to work with youth in our community to promote peace, tolerance and international understanding through an invitation to participate in the Lions International Peace Poster Contest. 

RTOERO members Gina Greco, Wayne Greco and Gayle Manley served as judges of the Lions International Peace Poster Contest and assisted Lion Club members Barb Perry, Jim and Carol Russell and Kim Carter. 

Students aged 11 to 14 from Algoma District School Board and Huron Superior District School Board had the opportunity to think about peace and share their visions with the world in the form of a poster.
