About Us

Not sure what the Lions Club does or what it means to be a LION?   Then read on…

We are people just like you who have found and joined Lions International to help and serve the less fortunate while enjoying excellent company and having a wonderful time. We serve humanity without thought to race, creed, nationality, religion or politics. The motto of every Lions Club is "WE SERVE", and individual Lions Clubs may decide just what their priorities are. Originating in 1917, Lions Clubs International (LCI) has become not only the largest but the most active service club organization in the world with 1.3 million members in 202 countries and geographic areas.

In 1925, Helen Keller addressed the Lions international convention in Cedar Point, Ohio, where she challenged Lions to become "knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness." From this time, Lions clubs have been actively involved in service to the blind and visually impaired.

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 but caring way.

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

LIONS ARE people who cherish the friendship and fellowship of their own Club, and who also feel a close kinship with fellow Lions throughout the world.

LIONS ARE patriotic, giving allegiance to their countries, while recognizing that all people must learn to live in peace.

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

LIONS ARE serious about their commitment to humanitarian service, but do not mind having a little fun along the way.

LIONS ARE .... people just like YOU. You can make a difference in your community and the world. Please consider joining us and helping in our good works.
