Operation Friendship

March 21- 24, 2019

Buneos dias a los Leones de Distrito 4-A2…wait, let me hit the SAP translation button on the keyboard…Greetings to my fellow Lions of District 4-A2!

It’s about that time of year again. With the holidays behind us, it is time to start saving a little money and making sure your passport is valid. Yes, it’s time to start preparing for our annual trip to Ensenada, Mexico!
The Operation Friendship Committee is officially inviting each of you to join us in our annual hands-across-the-border mission with the Leones de Ensenada. This year’s trip is in memory of Lion Carlos Avila Escoto. This will be the 57th annual visitation to Ensenada and the Committee is excited to be heading down south once again.

As you know, the primary mission while we are down there is to offer aid to the students of one of the local schools. Again, the plans are to serve both a morning and afternoon session of students while at the school. There will be a health clinic again with services ranging from eye exams to medical and chiropractic services. For those that don’t find work volunteering with the health clinic, there are always smaller cleaning and landscaping projects that need some Lion attention.

Here is some more good news, the host hotel Villa Marina Hotel has offered us great rates with a few different room options to choose from.

Time to hit the SAP button again…yo te prometo que vas a pasar un buen tiempo, vas a tenar experiencias que nunca vas a olvidar (I promise you a fun time and experiences you will never forget).

Sounding like fun?
