Speaker on Antarctica 
Our speaker from DU Law for January 11 is very ill.  We wish him the best.  As a quick fill-in speaker Lion Fletcher Brown will present his images from his recent trip to Antarctica, South Georgia Island, and Falklands.

More than half of the students at Denver Online High School, Grades 6 - 8, are from low-income households and more than 50% of the students are Black, Latinx, and/or Native Americans.  The teacher we’re supporting wants to help students learn about the teenage brain and what is happening to them at this very special time of life and set personalized wellness goals for the mind and body.
Here’s the thank you note we received after donating $200 to help reach these goals:
Dear Denver Lions Club,
As we are building a brand new online middle school these props will get us a great start on building a culture of valuing physical education. I am so excited to reach out to my students and let them know I'll be able to offer some props to inspire them to practice self-care at home through the movement and breathe they've learned in my class.
I'm hoping some of these props are a physical reminder to these kids that they are loved and worth the time and energy it took to get them.
With gratitude, Ms. Mandy
Lions Helping
Rita needed a helping hand to move her belongings.  Denver Lions stepped up and donate time, muscle, and money to help her move.
A warm winter coat
The social worker at a Denver High School where the majority of student families meet the free lunch requirement, let us know that there was a girl who was hoping for a warm coat for Christmas as she doesn’t have a coat.  Here is a picture of the wrapped coat Denver Lions purchased which was taken to the school social worker to be delivered to the student.  
Thank you for your contributions to the Denver Lions Foundation that make this kind of response possible in our community.
