2009-10 Peace Poster Contest
Each year, Lions clubs around the world proudly sponsor the Lions International Peace Poster Contest in local schools and youth groups. This Contest encourages young people worldwide to artistically express their visions of peace.
The theme of the 2009-10 Peace Poster Contest was "The Power of Peace." This year, the Liberty Lions Club chose Kaithlynn as their winner. Her poster has been forwarded to the District Competition.
Promoting the Arts
Each year's contest consists of an original theme incorporating peace. Participants use a variety of mediums, including charcoal, crayon, pencil and paint, to express the theme. The works created are unique and express the young artists' life experiences and culture.
Spreading Peace and International Understanding
Twenty-four international finalists are selected each year, representing the work of more than 350,000 young participants worldwide. Posters are shared globally via the Internet, the media and exhibits around the world.
Kimber Taylor gets her brace through the kindness of many
Through the generosity of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, Liberty Lions Club, Liberty Elks Lodge, Gospel Temple United Pentecostal Church of Rye, Burr Ridge Fence Company, KSHN 99.9 Radio, and many kind and generous citizens of Liberty County, Kimber Taylor, 11 year old daughter of Alvin and Tammy Taylor, was able to get the back brace she so desperately needs to help her in her fight against her crippling scoliosis. Kimber and her parents want to express their gratitude for the prayers and the overwhelming support from every person, organization and club that so graciously offered their assistance.
Trick or Treat Poker Run 2009
Chris Moorman, Greg Turner, and other members of the Liberty Lions Club rose early last Saturday morning to begin cooking sausage and pancakes in the dark. On a Texas-sized griddle loaned by Mike McCarty, the Liberty Lions cooked breakfast for several hours, feeding over a hundred people who came out to the Liberty Municipal Airport for the start of the 2009 Trick or Treat Poker Run.
They came in Cessnas and Pipers, a Mooney, and aerobatic airplanes such as the SIAI Marchetti, an F-1 Rocket and several Van’s RVs – kit-built airplanes – some with a passenger or two. One airplane hauled a family of four. Participants in the family-friendly event were children from as young as 19 months to senior citizens in their 80’s, and some even brought along the family dog. They came from Pearland, Sugar Land, Kingwood, Baytown, Houston, Conroe, and all around the Houston area.
Taking advantage of the fun flying activity, the Liberty-Dayton Are Chamber of Commerce, Liberty Lions Club, Liberty High School Band Boosters, Trinity River National Wildlife Refuge, and several area businesses were on hand to welcome visitors to Liberty and showcase our friendly community.
