The six Lions Clubs of Maui are offering local U.S. veterans an opportunity to serve their community by joining a Lions Club for free.
The Involve a U.S. Veteran program is a nationwide initiative sponsored by Lions Clubs International that offers qualified U.S. veterans an entrance-fee waiver when joining a local Lions club.
Eligible veterans include retired U.S. military personnel or honorably discharged members of the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, National Guard, Navy or Reserves. Those currently serving in the National Guard or Reserves are also eligible.
To learn more about the Involve a U.S. Veteran program or Lions Clubs of Maui, contact Zone Chair Jackie Yamamoto at 281-4474 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
