Philosophy to be adopted in conducting projects : all projects are to be under the primary responsibility of the Project Chairperson and each project to have a project chairperson. Each Lion and Lion Lady would be included in at least 2 projects so that all family members are involved in club service activities. Members should enjoy serving the needy rather than let it seem to be a burden.

The Ongoing & Other Projects, were discussed at the planning meeting to arrive at a consensus of the best fit for the club. The selection of projects are in line with the DG’s program of services & CSC & also based on availability of funds in the Services account.

Publicity and Fund raising : Community service projects require the most important funds that we need to raise from the public to bridge the difference between the funds requirement and our collective  personal contributions. To enable us to go to the public for much needed financial assistance it is imperative that we create the necessary image of ourselves through successful community service projects that we had conducted in the past.
