READY TO HELP

Whenever a Lions Club gets together, problems get smaller, and communities get better.  That's because we help where help is needed -- in our own communities and around the world -- with unmatched integrity and energy.  With over 48,000 Lions Clubs in over 200 countries around the world, LIONS is the world's largest service club organization.  Each Club is filled with people like you who have decided to take action and serve others.  LIONS form unique friendships and meaningful connections that can last a lifetime.

WE SERVE

Because we are local, we serve the unique needs of the communities where we live.  And because we are global, we can address challenges that go beyond borders.  Our motto is:   "WE SERVE".
