On  Wednesday, May 8th at the Garden Ridge Lions General Membership meeting, the Grace Preparatory Academy (GPA) Leo’s Club was inducted by Liz Bumguadner, past MD2 Texas Leo Chair and Past District 2-S3 Leo chair.  The Garden Ridge Lions Club is the sponsor of this Leo Club with opportunities to mentor and empower young leaders while fostering a commitment to community service. Through involvement with a Leo club, Lions can energize and inspire members and even increase the sponsoring club's community exposure, attracting potential members such as young professionals, students, parents and families. My sincere thanks to both Amanda Hagy and Tara Brown for their efforts in chartering this Leo Club which is a huge milestone in the rich history of the Garden Ridge Lions Club.  Here is the list of Chartered members:

Leo Clubs
encourage youths to develop leadership qualities by participating in social service activities. They are dependent on a Lions club to sponsor and initiate a Leo club. Leo Club members are addressed as "Leos." They conduct various projects in the fields of health care, elders, children, disabled people, literacy and education, and self-development. LEOs can raise funds by conducting fund-raising projects. They can conduct projects with another Leo club, sponsoring Lions club, or with an outside organization. Leo clubs are sponsored by Lions clubs and comprise an official program of Lions Clubs International.
