Here's why some of our current members joined:
I joined the Eugene Downtown Lions Club to serve my community. Lion Andy Bakr
I joined Lions because I was asked to join! Also, because I was new in Eugene
and wanted to serve others and meet new friends. Lion Jim Newton
I joined Lions because I was asked! I am so very happy that I was. Lion Sharon Newton
I was invited to attend a Lions club meeting at the Eugene Hotel by my dentist,
Dr. Fred Epplett. I was impressed by the Lions I met, and also the mission of Lions,
"We Serve". Lion P.P. John Hamson
I joined LIONS because I cannot come close to the collective warmth and dedication
of our members to "serving" others. Lion Bill Sarnoff
