SADDLE RIVER, N.J. — Members of Saddle River Valley Lions Club welcomed student leaders from four area schools to ‘Leo Night III,’ an annual celebration of community service efforts by local students participating in the Leo Club program.
Leo Clubs are school-based organizations modeled after and chartered by Lions International since 1967. Now constituting an international network of more than 6,500 clubs in more than 140 countries, the ‘LEO’ name is an acronym for its motto: Leadership, Equality and Opportunity.
Students from Northern Highlands Regional High School, Upper Saddle River’s Cavallini Middle School, Mahwah High School, and the Brookside School in Allendale, each addressed the Lions about their service activities and answered questions from the members present.
The Leo Night Program, originally created to give Lions a chance to meet and interact with the student members and faculty advisers of local Leo Clubs, already has become an annual Lions Club tradition.
"The number of students now actively participating in our four Leo Clubs has passed 160 and continues to climb," said member David Verducci, who continues to serve as the chairman of the Lions’ Leo Committee. "The Lions Club remains strongly committed to doing all it can to help make these student clubs, as well as those we hope to open in the near future, reach the highest level of success possible.”
