Members of the BC Lions Football Club will be in Port Alberni this week in support of the Lions in the House program.
Created specifically for youth in grades six through nine, the Lions in the House initiative is focused on the power of choice and being the best you can be. In particular, students will be challenged to examine their choices as it relates to their own personal safety and the opportunities available in the trades.
An interactive assembly interspersed with athletic competitions that provide a unique opportunity for the students to compete against each other, Lions in the House features speeches by prominent Leos as they discuss their own experiences in making significant life choices.
The BC Lions will be visiting three different schools in the Valley on Wednesday, Feb. 7: EJ Dunn Elementary School at 9 a.m., Alberni Elementary School at 11 a.m. and Haahuupayak School at 1 p.m.
