North Latvia Leo club
North Latvia Leo club (NLLC) first came together on 1st December, when 16 young people from Valmiera decided that forming a Leo club is the right thing to do. The main motivation of 8 girlsand 8 boys aged 16 to 26 in this club is to help other young people in our town and enjoy being together. Focuss of our activities is on young people and children. Besides that, we believe friendsip is the core of our cooperation and we run also teambuilding activities.
It is great that Leo are not only children of LC Valmiera Lions but also many new people that have learned about Lionism only recently.
Sponsoring Lions Club Valmiera supported this initiative of creating currently the only Leo club in Latvia. Special thanks to Inese Kripe, Aija Sela and Janis Zemlickis.
All NLLC members meet monthly in Valmiera and the board members meet each second week in Riga.
On 18th December North Latvia Leo club was affirmed by Lions Clubs International, and on 17th January North Latvia Leo club was officially registered in Latvia. Charter evening was held on 18th January.
At the moment in year 2015 there are 16 members aged 15 to 24 years, who are scholars in Valmiera or students in Riga. All members are talanted - some of them play musical instruments, some are doing arts, acting in theater, singing in choirs and dancing, but still - they are able to find time to help their city and local community.
