Based in Eden Valley, Minnesota, A Maze’n Farmyard offers fun for the whole family. Complete with a petting barn, duck pond, giant slide, and permanent maze, it maintains numerous attractions and continually adds new attractions to keep guests excited. Active in the community, A Maze’n Farmyard supports the Eden Valley Lions Club, the local Lions Club branch.

With more than 1.4 million members, Lions Clubs International is the largest service club organization in the world. In an effort to expose club members to new cultures and friends across the world, the organization maintains an International Club Twinning program. Through International Club Twinning, Leos and Lions work together with clubs from other countries to complete a service mission. Both clubs must voluntarily participate in Club Twinning before a service project can be completed, and members are free to choose how much interaction they have with the other club during the course of the project.

To participate in the Club Twinning program, clubs must first find a twin club. This can be done by searching online at Lions Clubs International’s website to see which clubs are looking for twins. All searching clubs are placed on a map so each club can find the right twin club for their project. Once joined, the twinned clubs complete a joint service project. Completed projects are featured on the website’s interactive map when clubs send in the story and photos of their project. So far, joint projects have been completed in such countries as South Africa, Nigeria, Turkey, and Romania.
