Who Are Lions?

Lions are men and women who volunteer their time to humanitarian causes in their local and world communities. By conducting service projects and raising funds, Lions strive to help those in need, wherever need exists. The Lions' motto is, "We Serve."

In 1925, Helen Keller addressed the Lions at their annual International Convention, challenging them to become "knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness." Since that time, service to the blind and visually impaired has become one of the association's most significant activities. That crusade has resulted in the establishment of Sight First, a global sight prevention program.

In addition, Lions participate in service activities emphasizing diabetes awareness, education and research; work with the physically and mentally impaired; environmental issues; community welfare; international understanding and youth.

The association was founded in Chicago, Illinois, USA, in 1917. Although the youngest major service club organization, Lions Clubs International has grown to be the world's largest. Its 1.4 million members belong to clubs in over 180 countries and geographical locations. Lions Clubs International is headquartered in Oak Brook, Illinois, USA.

To the Lions, "We Serve" is not only a motto, but a definition and philosophy.

Lions Pledge

I pledge allegiance to my country and to the cause of peace throughout the World.

I believe in the principles of Lionism as contained in the Lions Code of Ethics.

I am PROUD to be a Lion, dedicated to the service of others.

 

Program Director

Lion Dave Atkinson is our Program Director. He is in charge of arranging programs for our meetings, Lion Dave is also the chairman for our Teen Dances.

Code of Ethics

To show my faith in the worthiness of my vocation by industrious application to the end that I may merit a reputation for quality of service.

To seek success and to demand all fair remuneration or profit as my just due, but to accept no profit or success at the price of my own self-respect lost because of unfair advantage taken or because of questionable acts on my part.

To remember that in building up my business it is not necessary to tear down another's; to be loyal to my clients or customers and true to myself.

Whenever a doubt arises as to the right or ethics of my position or action towards my fellow men, to resolve such doubt against myself.

To help friendship as an end and not a means. To help that true friendship exists not on account of the service performed by one to another, but that true friendship demands nothing but accepts service in the spirit in which it is given.

Always bear in mind my obligation as a citizen to my nation, my state and community, and to give to them my unswerving loyalty in word, act and deed. To give them freely of my time, labor and means.

To aid my fellow men by giving my sympathy to those in distress, my aid to the weak, and my substance to the needy.

To be careful with my criticism and liberal with my praise; to build up and not destroy.
