After the august break from volunteering, the Leos will be starting a new term and a fun filled year under Raymond Nguyen’s leadership in September 2010. Please stay tuned for all the recent volunteer activities of the Calgary North Hill Leos!!!
From July 9th-19th, 2010 the Calgary North Hill Leos will be volunteering at the Calgary Stampede. The Leos will be helping to increase ticket sales by interacting with the public at the BMO Centre. The Leos will also be protecting George the Lion as he puts smiles on childrens faces. The Stampede gives money back to local volunteer organizations (i.e. Lions and Leos) for every ticket sold. So if you have some free time at the Stampede next year, check George the Lion, learn about the Leos and buy a lottery ticket. Its for a good cause!
In the month of June the Calgary North Hill Leos are proud to announce their commitment to donate money to the Palliative Breast Care Centre and the YMCA. From fund raising efforts the club was able to donate to these organizations to continue their excellence in the community as well as improving the health of others.
On July 1st the Calgary North Hill Leos will officially be guided by new club president Raymond Nguyen. The Calgary North Hill Leos would like to thank president Christopher Woo for a successful 1 year term managing and leading the Leos to become a successful youth volunteer group. Chris has gone beyond the call of duty even managing events until September 1st. Chris lead with passion and constantly acted with conviction to demonstrate to the youth that volunteering is not just for the resume, but its about helping others and becoming a better person in society.
On June 10th, 2010 the Calgary North Hill Leos celebrated the artistic creations of young students around calgary by throwing a carnival in their honor. Students from various elementary and junior high schools created posters themed after peace. Each piece of artwork was evaluated and winning posters would be displayed at city hall.
