NEW YORK – The Somers Leos, the youth branch of the Somers Lions Club, was invited to participate in the 39th annual Lions Day held last week at the United Nations.

During the event, the Leos played field hockey with Special Olympians as part of a Unified Sports experience. The Somers Leos were the only Leos club asked to participate in the event. Club members also had the opportunity to meet with other Lions and Leos from around the globe.

“This is a great honor for our club as we were singled out for the great work we have been doing in living up to the Leo model of ‘Leadership, Experience and Opportunity,’ along with the Lion mission of ‘We Serve,’” said Tracy Reimann, co-coordinator of the Leos along with Paul LaSpina.
