Through membership in a Lions club, you not only help those in need, but you also have the opportunity to develop personal friendships and gain valuable leadership skills. All while giving something back to your community.
Membership is open to men and women of legal majority and good reputation in the community, and is by invitation only. Clubs meet at least twice a month and elect officers annually. An international board of directors governs the association. Each year, approximately 20,000 Lions attend the international convention to discuss new ideas, share experiences, and reaffirm friendship and fellowship.
If you are interested in learning more about our organization or becoming a member, we would be happy to have you join us for a meeting. It's a great opportunity to meet other Lions and see if it is an activity you might be interested in. There is no obligation for attending and learning more. Please contact:
