Re: FLAG DAY for Lions Home for the Elders – 27th August 2016
Dear Club Presidents and members,
It is that time of the year again when we appeal for your support to raise much needed funds for the Lions Home for the Elders.
The Flag Day on Saturday 27th August this year is an annual event in which all Lions Clubs and members are encouraged to participate. It will involve much planning and organisation, not to mention the hours of perspiration in the hot sun for those out in the streets with their collection tins. Every year Lions and family members, Leos and volunteers give of their time on this occasion, and the Home is very grateful for their commitment and efforts.
As the two Lions Homes continue to strive to provide quality care for its financially disadvantaged old and sick residents, operational and manpower costs are increasing exponentially. An annual operating budget of slightly more than S$10 M for the two nursing Homes is required to help realise our vision of giving their elderly residents quality of life in a modern, comfortable and happy environment.
We are therefore calling upon Lions Clubs in Singapore to rally to this cause, by helping us to raise funds for the Home. Any amount raised above the annual operating budget will be reserved for subsequent years.
Fellow Lions, your participation during the Flag Day, and your visible presence at collection centres and out in the streets appealing for donations, will also help to publicise the Lions organisation in Singapore, and showcase the Lions Home and how it is helping the disadvantaged and sick elderly in the community.
If you have not signed up yet, please do so by contacting one of the Organising Committee Members:

Thank you again for helping to make a difference to the lives of the residents of the Lions Home!
