La Mesa Lions Club was chartered April 29, 1949. The Club includes more than 45 men and women members who meet each Tuesday at noon at the La Mesa Community Center. Fellowship is at the very heart of Lionism and is never more evident than at La Mesa Lions Club meetings. Our social events are a great deal of fun--ranging from theatre outings to “A Day at the Races.” We know how to have a good time!
Our primary fundraising project includes an annual Italian Dinner. DATE TBD  
The Club undertakes a wide variety of service activities including the collection of eye glasses for the Lions in Sight Project, yard work at Sharp Hospice Care’s LakeView Home; Lions Student Speakers Contest, Lemon Avenue and La Mesa Dale Elementary School Sponsorship, Lions Youth Exchange Program, Mt. Helix Cleanup days and working with Stand Up for Kids. lease see our Club Projects page.
Each year the Club elects new officers for the subsequent year, July 1 - June 30.

Lions Code of Ethics

  • To Show my faith in the worthiness of my vocation by industrious application to the end that I may merit a reputation for quality of service.
  • To Seek success and to demand all fair remuneration or profit as my just due, but to accept no profit or success at the price of my own self-respect lost because of unfair advantage taken or because of questionable acts on my part.
  • To Remember that in building up my business it is not necessary to tear down another's; to be loyal to my clients or customers and true to myself.
  • Whenever a doubt arises as to the right or ethics of my position or action towards others, to resolve such doubt against myself.
  • To Hold friendship as an end and not a means. To hold that true friendship exists not on account of the service performed by one to another, but that true friendship demands nothing but accepts service in the spirit in which it is given.
  • Always to bear in mind my obligations as a citizen to my nation, my state, and my community, and to give them my unswerving loyalty in word, act, and deed. To give them freely of my time, labor and means.
  • To Aid others by giving my sympathy to those in distress, my aid to the weak, and my substance to the needy.
  • To Be Careful with my criticism and liberal with my praise; to build up and not destroy.
