      Lion Barb has chosen Diabetes as the District Project for this Lions year. So many are affected with this disease and the best form of combat and prevention of this disease is awareness. Lions are encouraged to hold an event in their community to raise Dianetes awareness and to make donations to Lions Club International Foundation (LCIF), Northern Illinois Diabetes Coalition (NIDC) or the American Diabetes Association (ADA).

Together, We Serve!
