Leo Clubs are youth organizations of Lions Clubs International. The name L E O stands for Leadership, Experience, Opportunity. The Leo Club objective is "...to provide the youth of the world (with) an opportunity for development and contribution, individually and collectively, as responsible members of the local, national and international community." Leo Clubs encourage our youth to develop leadership qualities by participating in social service activities.
The Thurmont Lions Club sponsors two LEO Clubs:
Thurmont Middle School - chartered in October 2008. Youth at this school are learning the importance of "We Serve" at an early age.
Catoctin High School - chartered in October 2009. These LEOs serve our community and learn the rewards of volunteerism all while juggling their busy high school student schedule.
