What Lions Are / What Lions Aren’t

LIONS ARE members of the world’s largest and most active club organization.

LIONS AREN’T looking to build their own personal business connections through membership in a civic club.

LIONS ARE people who have decided to give something back to their communities, who are dedicated to finding people in need, and who meet those needs in an efficient caring way.

LIONS AREN’T people who simply write checks to benefit the hard work of charities in their community.  Lions are those people who working hard in those community charities.

LIONS ARE men and women who believe that by working with other dedicated Lions, they will accomplish far more for their communities than would be possible alone.

LIONS AREN’T concerned with building personal prestige or reputation.  Lions have a great reputation because of the hard work they perform.  Their service speaks for itself.

LIONS ARE committed to solving major, worldwide health and social problems, and realize that solutions are possible when every Lions Club does its share.

LIONS AREN’T a group that raises funds locally to be sent elsewhere.  Although Lions charities benefit state and worldwide activities, the majority of each Lions Club’s activities focus on the local needs.

LIONS ARE people who cherish the friendship within their own club, but also feel a close kinship with fellow Lions in more than 190 countries and areas throughout the world.

LIONS AREN’T just about work.  Lions have fun and fellowship.  Friendships made in Lionism last a lifetime, because they are based on a common commitment to service.  Lions work hard, but have fun all along the way.

LIONS ARE patriotic, giving allegiance to their country, while recognizing that all peoples must one day learn to live in peace.

LIONS AREN’T a political organization.  Lions are not about political agendas, platforms or issues.  In fact, most clubs will not allow an active candidate for political office to speak to their Club, unless all other candidates are given the same opportunity.

LIONS ARE dedicated to maintain the highest ethical and moral standards in their Club and in their personal lives.

LIONS AREN’T a religious organization.  Most Lions have their own personal commitment, which all Lions are encourage to have.  Likewise, Lions Clubs are not fraternal organizations with rituals or special oaths.

The Dawsonville Lions Club

The Dawsonville Club was founded in 1953 by a small group of Dawson County citizens who embraced the Lions philosophy and shared the desire to give something back to the community in which they lived.

The mission of the Lions Club is to create and foster a spirit of understanding among all members for humanitarian needs. This is achieved by providing financial support and voluntary services to citizens and organizations of Dawson County in need of charitable endeavors. 

Our core mission is to support the vision impaired and hearing impaired in need.  We do this by supporting the Georgia Lions Lighthouse who make eyeglasses, provide eye surgeries, and provide hearing aids for the needy.  Locally, we provide eye exams and subsequent glasses through Dawson Vision Center and the Georgia Lions Lighthouse for those in need.  We support Lions International who provide local grant assistance during declared disasters.  We support the Georgia Camp in Waycross, which is open to all children in Georgia and the Leader Dog program for the blind and deaf and blind. We have been the sponsor for the Star Student / Teacher Program for Dawson high school students for over 40 years.  Last year, we provided six $1000 college scholarships to deserving DCHS seniors and will continue this long lasting program this year.  We also provide scholarships to deserving local Lanier Technical College students as well as GED students. Other local charities we are supporting this year include:  Dawson County Library, Good Shepherd Clinic, Dawson Senior Center, Dawson Art Center, Dawson Humane Society, READ, Wee Books.






Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with more than 1.4 million members in approximately 46,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world.
