The website of Lions Clubs International gives us basic direction (the Mission Statement and Vision Statement) and gives us the tools to develop skills, leadership, programs, community support structures that brings groups (our group) of volunteers together and enables us to give back to youth and those in need.  Byproducts can be self-satisfaction, friendships, sense of family, enjoyment & fun, travel and more.  It is personal growth and widening one’s perspective.
