The Hurley Lions Club was founded in 1955 becoming part of Lions Clubs International an international network of 1.3 million men and women in 200 countries and geographic areas who work together to answer the needs that challenge communities around the world.  Beginning in 1917 the association of Lions clubs has provided millions of people with the opportunity to give something back to their communities.
The Lions motto is “We Serve.” Lions participate in service activities emphasizing research into the causes and treatment of sight and hearing loss, diabetic education, drug awareness, and education programs. Lions work with the physically and mentally impaired, support environmental issues, community welfare, international understanding, and youth programs. We are looking for students who, in some way, emulate the motto of Lionism. How do you serve?
