Located in Eden Valley, Minnesota, A Maze’n Farmyard is a family entertainment park that enables guests to learn about farm life while participating in an assortment of outdoor activities and animal interactions. A Maze’n Farmyard also belongs to local organizations such as the Eden Valley Lions Club, which allows members to connect with and give back to their community.

The Lion’s Club is celebrating their Centennial, and you can create a Legacy Project to commemorate the club and to serve your community. The Lion’s Club Legacy Projects act as physical reminders of the club’s importance to the community through services and contributions. Project creators can use their work as an opportunity for public relations through social and local media or through a dedication or ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The initiative operates with three levels of participation, and Lion members may engage in any participation level they desire, or even more than one level. Level one covers community visibility projects, such as posting new Lion’s signs, sponsoring a fountain, or donating a park. Level two includes physical gifts to local public areas that can range from refurbishing a park and building footbridges over busy streets to donating services to underserved persons. Level three involves community impact projects that create a lasting effect via building a clinic or outfitting a local hospital with new equipment.

Lions Club chapters nationwide encourage Lion members working on their own Legacy Project to report their contributions using the MyLCI Service Activity Report. Reporting the project will allow members to earn a special banner patch and receive the chance to see their project featured on Lions Club International (LCI) social media pages and in LION Magazine. Moreover, the LCI promotes a project deadline of June 30, 2018.
