Archived Issues

The Wisconsin Lion, is a monthly newspaper designed to inform and educate the Lions of Wisconsin on issues that strengthen our organization and our ability to serve our communities.


To increase accessibility, the Wisconsin Lion newspaper is published in four formats:

  • Newspaper (in your hands by the 1st of the month)

  • PDF (online) – you will need Adobe Reader® to view back issues.  Version XI (11.0) is now available, so update now.

  • Rich Text File (online) – Can be opened by any word processing software and is reader compatible.

Starting with the April issue, the format has changed to a digital newspaper.  The best way to read the articles is to click on the headline and read the article in the sidebar.  There are buttons to navigate through the newspaper.  The new format is screen reader friendly, so the Word documents will no longer be published.
