Why does Lions Club of San Felipe produce the Blues & Arts Fiesta?
Why does Lions Club of San Felipe produce an event like Blues & Arts Fiesta 2011? The reason is simple. The regional event raises money for the greater San Felipe community. This critical funding goes directly to local humanitarian efforts suggested by community members.
This year's Lions leadership is headed by Jimmy Moore, our current president. Our Lions Club was chartered in 2007 and counts over 100 active members who actively build community by service to others. For example, the SF Lions sponsors the new local orphanage and gives repair funding to local schools. We distribute donated medical supplies. We work with the various medical teams who come to San Felipe, like the Flying Samaritans. Lions sponsored eye clinics provide exams and eyeglasses for children who have no access for corrective vision services. We don't stop there either. Lions don't hesitate to step up when needed. The emergency assistance for victims of the Easter Earthquake happened within hours of the quake.
Our Club embraces cultural diversity and encourages Mexican participation and membership. By listening to the community the local SF Lions membership truly captures the Lions international spirit because by building local relationships, we all get a better world.
So why Blues & Arts Fiesta 2011? A great party and it is the right thing to do.
