Every Lions Club can and must make a webpage
By Lion Dan Uitti, PDG
District Internet Chairman
It is vital that Lions Club make and maintain a webpage. Using the internet, your club no longer has to be a secret.
Try to create a short and meaningful web page address. So for the Watertown Lions, use "Watertown" in the name.
There are a number of FREE places on-line that you can make web page, but I recommend the EASY way.
1. Free and Easy - I recommend LionWAP.org see www.lionnet.com/lionwap.html
Example - Watertown Lions - www.lionwap.org/WatertownCT
2. Low cost with Domain Name
If you wish to have a domain name, such as www.WatertownLions.org I recommend DotEasy
You will have to use HTML or web page software, but it does not use all Front Page extensions. This is just $25 per year.
3. Full service Web hosting and Domain Name
Some larger clubs can and may justify having full featured Internet Hosting services with email, Front Page extensions etc. Here, I recommend a good low cost hosting service, and Domain Name service. Reserve your club's Domain Name first. I recommend just $14.98 per year.
This high quality full service web hosting service is extremely flexible and low priced.
Here are some things that you want on your web page to get started:
When you make a web page, show a greeting message such as:
The Watertown Lions Club serves Watertown and Oakville Connecticut and the world. We are celebrating our 50th Year.
Include this information:
You can get a simple Lions emblem from a number of locations on the internet. The small one that appears on the CT Lions webpage is correctly at http://www.ctlions.org/weservct.gif
If you would like to show the Lions emblem on your page with text along the right side, like I did for the Watertown Lions Club, then you do not need a graphic at all. Simply insert the following HTML code and change the words appropriately.

<TABLE CELLSPACING=0 BORDER=0 CELLPADDING=7 WIDTH=444>
<TR><TD WIDTH="28%" VALIGN="TOP">
<P><IMG SRC="http://www.ctlions.org/weservct.gif" WIDTH=84 HEIGHT=78></TD>
<TD WIDTH="72%" VALIGN="TOP">
<P>The Watertown Lions Club serves Watertown and Oakville Connecticut and the world. We are celebrating our 50th Year.

I recommend that you show an email address that is a hyperlink, using the MAIL TO code. This is very simple. Just insert code as follows, substituting your email address.
- - - - -
Send email to Dan Uitti at
<A HREF="mailto:email@example.com"> firstname.lastname@example.org</A><br>

Here are some quick tips of HTML code that will dress up the text.
Insert a blank line using <BR>
Indent a section by starting it with <DIR> and ending it with </DIR>
Set a section header to bold, starting with <B> and ending the bold text with </B>
Always be polite on the internet. If you receive unwanted email, do not reply to it. If you receive a request or inquiry about your club that your club cannot provide, be sure to answer as if you were facing that person in public.
Tell me about your new webpage. I will add it to LionNet International, as well as the Connecticut Lions webpage. Contact me email@example.com
