Chartered in 2001, the Angeles City Clark Balibago Lions Club upholds a distinguished tradition of excellence of coming to the need of our underprivileged and disadvantaged fellowmen. A group of service-minded men and women spanning 18 to 80 years old, the club continues to render its projects and activities to the people of Pampanga. On its 10th year, the Angeles City Clark Balibago Lions Club fully supports International President Wing Kun Tam's thrust of having faith in the organization's strengths through his motto "I Believe."
This Lion Year, eighteen year old Kevin Sol Flores assumes the presidency. Bringing the dynamic modes with which the youth operate within today, President Kevin seeks to do his part in bringing in an innovative and efficient agenda of aiding his fellow Filipinos in their plight of hardships and travails.

Articulate in English, Filipino, Mandarin Chinese, and French, this outspoken and upcoming leader underscores the importance of the youth in the organization. "I believe it is a necessity for all Lions Clubs to diversify their membership into one that holds time-honored traditions close to its performance while being able to offer activities and projects suited to the growing and ever-changing needs of our fellowmen these days" President Kevin says of Lions Clubs' membership. "For if we are to undertake such an adaptive measure, our intentions of service to the less fortunate will only become stronger, organized good more efficient than it has ever been in our respective communities."
Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with more than 1.3 million members in approximately 45,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world.
