We are always seeking new members who have a desire to serve their fellow man and improve the community and world we live in. The satisfaction gained by being a part of these efforts is one of the big rewards of being a Lion. For young members there is the opportunity to develop leadership skills while retirees often join as a way to redirect their lives in retirement. We also enjoy the friendship and camaraderie of the group as we involve ourselves in club activities.
