The purpose of the Ohio Lions Traveling Tent Project is to assist Ohio Lions Clubs with providing information about Lions Clubs International and especially their local club activities in their communities. It’s also to help with recruiting of new members and even hoping to get some former members to return to Lions.

An experienced Ohio Lion will come to your event with signs and handouts (and a tent if it’s outside) to help visitors better understand what being a Lion is all about. He will answer questions about Lions Clubs International and the local Lions Clubs activities and what they do to help their local community and the world.

A few things to know:

  1. Visits are scheduled on a first come, first served basis.
  2. Any club that requests a Traveling Tent visit for their event must cover expenses related to the visit. Examples are: parking fees, space rental, tickets, and if the request is for multiple days the lodging of the Traveling Tent Lion.
  3. Clubs are requested to either have a club member assist the Traveling Tent Lion to answer questions about the local club (dues, meeting days/times, and local activities) or provide an information sheet with those details to be handed out.

To discuss the Traveling Tent Project further and arrange for someone to attend your club's recruiting event, local festival, or other event please contact:
