Earl L. Vandermeulen High School Leo Club members learned about some of the many wonderful opportunities available through the partnership with the Port Jefferson Lions Club.
The presentation was facilitated by school librarian Eva Grasso and technology teacher Brian Chalmers who are co-advisers to the Leo Club. The students welcomed the Lions Club’s liaison, Lori Anne De Iulio Casdia. She shared the background of the local, national and international affiliate of the high school’s Leo Club, which offers student members many unique opportunities. Beyond engaging in community service, the Lions Club also bridges the school to local business and industry leaders, helping to pay it forward and model the ethos of gratitude that the Lions Club espouses.
As stated by the Lions Club organization: “Together, Leos and Lions form a powerful partnership – one of mutual respect where Lions learn from the innovative insights of Leos, and where Leos gain access to the proven strategies of those who’ve successfully served the world for decades.”
The high school Leo Club couldn’t agree more.
“Our Leo Club was thankful for Ms. De Iulio Casdia’s insight and energy, and the Lions Club’s continued partnership,” Ms. Grasso said.
