Rainier Lions Club Sponsors Children (with Diabetes) to go to Camp Leo

Rainier Lions Fuji Apple Sales, all profit will go to Camp Leo (for children with Type 1 Diabetes).   A way to make sure your child attends Camp Leo is to volunteer  (family, friends or camper) with the Rainier Lions, during their community service projects, in the current  Lions year that is from now to June 30, 2019.  Then the Club will sponsor your child for Summer 2019 Camp Leo!   Come to the Lions meeting on the 4th Monday of the month, Rainier Chapel at 5:30 p.m. or contact the Rainier school nurse. (The Club limits the number of children sponsored.)

Camp Leo to Benefit from Rainier Lions Club Annual Apple Sales!

Camp Leo is the ONLY overnight camp in Western Washington exclusively dedicated to children with Type 1 Diabetes.

This year our apples will be packed at the orchard this year.  You will buy 40# of fresh, crisp, Fuji Apples for $40.00!  These are beautiful apples that keep fresh for a long time, so you can make pies, apple crisps, turnovers, applesauce, apple butter, and just eat them fresh out of the box!

The Rainier Lions Club would like you to know that Camp Leo for Children with Diabetes will benefit from their Fuji Apple Sales this year.  Camp Leo was established in 1990.  You can read about Camp Leo in the links below.

Pledge of Allegiance                    
I Pledge Allegiance                       
To The Flag
Of The United States Of America
And To The Republic
For Which It Stands
One Nation
Under God,
With Liberty
And Justice
For All.

America                                      O Canada
My country 'tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty
Of thee I sing;
Land where my father’s died,
Land of the Pilgrim's pride,
From every mountainside
Let freedom ring.

My native country, thee,
Land of the noble free,
Thy name I love;
I love thy rocks and rills,
Thy woods and templed hills,
My heart with rapture fills
Like that above.
O Canada! Our home and
    native land
True patriot love in all thy
    son’s command.
With glowing hearts we see
    thee rise,
The True North strong and free!
From far and wide, O Canada,
We stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land, glorious
    and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard
    for thee; O Canada,
    we stand on guard for thee.

Where Lions meet be present Lord,
And fill our hearts with one accord.
To do thy will, Lord make us strong
To aid the weak and right the wrong.  Amen.
