Become a Lion


Who Are Lions

Lions are hands-on individuals with more volunteers in more places than any other service organization in the world. The 1.35 million lions members in 206 countries share a core belief- community is what we make it.


How to Become a Member

Membership is by invitation but we want to hear from anyone who is interested.  Contact any member of the club or get our address from the contact page and send us a letter.  If you provide us with your contact information, a member will be in touch.


Why You Should Get Involved

Lions are well known for initiatives in vision health but their diverse service includes caring for the environment, feeding the hungry, and providing support to the local community, youth, seniors, and the challenged.  Together with the Lions Clubs International Foundation, they actively work to eradicate blindness, provide disaster relief and address humanitarian needs.

You can make an impact on peoples lives - locally and globally.  We need the help of passionate members like you to:

  • provide more hands for service
  • gain fresh ideas for service activitities
  • spread enthusiasm for helping others
  • raise community awareness


Why Iroquois-Matilda Lions

Whether looking to lend a helping hand or pursue a leadership role, our club offers an opportunity to volunteer at a level that your lifestyle and schedule allows.  We meet twice a month from September until June to enjoy a meal together followed by a business meeting.  You will be asked to serve at a Wednesday night bingo once every four weeks but we understand if that is not possible.  We participate in numerous projects to help meet the needs of our local and global communities and we have fun doing it.

For a reasonable fee that covers the cost of your nineteen meals and membership in the world's largest service club you can enjoy these benefits:  

  • Experience the satisfaction of helping your community.
  • Feel respected and appreciated
  • Grow personally and professionally
  • Develop new talents and gain valuable skills
  • Network with like-minded people
