Roundup of Burbank Clubs

December 27, 2011|By Isabel Adams

Burbank Noon Lions

“Children Know Peace” is the theme for the 2011 International Peace Poster contest sponsored by the Burbank Noon Lions club, and on November 16, the club recognized the winners in a ceremony held at the Burbank Central Library. This is the first level of competition.

The peace poster contest was established by Lions Clubs International to promote the awareness of world peace internationally among youth. Burbank City officials, students, teachers, Lions and parents gathered for the awards presentation to honor the winners from three Burbank Middle schools and the Boys & Girls Club who took part in this year’s contest. This is the 16th year the Burbank Noon Lions Club has sponsored the project in Burbank. Winners of this competition have the opportunity to proceed to the next level. After judges weigh in around the world, there will be 23 merit winners, each receiving $500, and one top winner receiving $2,500 and a trip to the United Nations in New York City.

All Burbank student entries will be on display in the Burbank Central Library until January.

The Awards Presentation included certificates of recognition presented by Bud Alleman from the Burbank Noon Lions, Mayor Jess Talamantes from the city of Burbank and commendations from the offices of Congressman Adam Schiff, State Senator Carol Liu, Assemblyman Mike Gatto and County Supervisor Mike Antonovich.

The Burbank Noon Lions meet on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month at noon at the Holiday Inn, 150 E. Angeleno Ave., Burbank. For more information, contact Marva Murphy at (818) 955-8018.
