Lion’s Club Gets New Leadership
-Inducts Lion Asiatu Bah-Kenneth As President
The Cape Meaurado Lions Club (CMLC) has inducted Asiatu Bah-Kenneth as the eleventh President of the club for 2019/2020.
The glamorous induction was held at a local hotel in Paynesville where members of the Lion’s club along with invited guests graced the occasion in grand style.
Speaking at the induction ceremony over the weekend, Lion Asiatu Bah-Kenneth stated that, the foundation of the Lion Clubs is built on the principle of serving humanity.“Our clubs are places where individuals join to give valuable time and efforts to improving the communities and the world at large by serving humanity” madam Kenneth stressed.
She indicated that as a member of any of the Lion’s club one must be ready to contribute their time, finances and talents in order to put smiles on the faces of the less fortunate most especially the blind, crippled, etc.
Kenneth revealed that a meaningful contribution that was made to blind children by the Greater Monrovia Lions club 20 years ago led her quest of becoming a member of the Lions Club.
“We should learn how to lead by examples. As Lions, our actions and service should be able to inspire others.
We should provide courage and a unique sense of empowerment to our communities and to the world” Kenneth noted.
She disclosed that under her leadership the CMLC will focus on feeding less fortunate Liberians most especially the blind including women and children.
Kenneth also asserted that her leadership will ensure that the 10 bedrooms house that was constructed for the blinds in Brewerville will be taken to another level in order to benefit them.
Delivering the Keynote address earlier, former President of the Ducor Lions Club Collins Teah called on the membership of the Cape Mesurado Lions club to commit themselves to serving humanity at all times, “I believe it is your desire to serve humanity that led you becoming a Lion”.
Teah indicated that members of the club can only deliver quality service to humanity only when they are committed to making sure that the livelihoods of the less fortunate are catered to, adding “To be a lion we must bound ourselves with commitment and service”.
“The one who is called to serve should not hesitate to serve. To serve without hesitating is what we called commitment, service is a calling. Real Lions become Lion simply to help or do work for others” Teah said.
Teah emphasized that there is strength in numbers, pointing out that members of the Lion Clubs can collectively contribute and galvanized their efforts to render bigger services to humanity.
“We can only deliver adequate service to humanity if we are dedicated, the calling of a lion requires real dedication” Teah climaxed.

It was established in 1917 and is the largest service organization in the world with a membership of over 1.3 million in more than 200 countries.
