Lions are men and women who care for their neighbors and work together to provide humanitarian services to those in need. The efforts of Lions Clubs not only serve their own communities but their province, country, and throughout the world, in many developing countries.

  In 1925 Helen Keller, a renowned blind person, challenged Lions to become “Knights of the Blind in this Crusade Against Darkness.” Ever since then a primary focus of Lions Clubs has been in providing services for the blind and visually challenged. The most recent Campaign Sight First II raised over $200 million (US$) for the fight against blindness.
 
For many years Lions have been strong supporters of diabetes awareness and education programs, especially as they relate to the youth. Environmental and youth programs are also given a strong emphasis by Lions Clubs, as are community service activities.
 
Often Lions work behind the scenes supporting other community agencies in their fundraising or service efforts, as well as individuals in need.

Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with more than 1.4 million members in approximately 46,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world.
The Dartmouth LIONS Club was chartered on 25 October, 1945, and sponsored by the Halifax LIONS Club. One of the first major undertakings for the club was sponsoring 18 Dartmouth Lions Royal Air Cadet Squadron.
 
The active members of the club meet the first & third Tuesdays of a month for regular business meeting. The first one is a dinner meeting, usually with a guest speaker. The second meeting usually is more club business.
 
In addition to the camaraderie enjoyed while preforming service work for the community, Lions have opportunities for fellowship, sharing fun and good times at a number of social events, which can include spouses and partners. Many members have found that joining and participating in LIONS has been a rewarding, personal growth, and educational experience while making friends for life.
