Lions are people who have decided to give something back to their communities, who are dedicated to finding people in need, and who meet those needs in an efficient but caring way.


Lions are men and women who believe that by working with other dedicated Lions, they will accomplish far more for their communities than would be possible alone.


Lions are people who cherish the friend-ship and fellowship of their own Club, but who also feel a close kinship with more than 1.5 million fellow Lions in more than 160 countries and areas throughout the world.


Lions are dedicated to maintaining the highest ethical and moral standards in their Club – and in their personal lives
