Lions can be a way for you to join a local organization that is part of an International Association. By becoming a Lion you would be part of a group of 1.35 million members, who perform community service in 208 countries and geographic areas. When you join Lions you join a global service network. Lions are the largest Service Club in the World. So, at the same time you are doing local community service, you also contribute to Lion volunteer efforts around the world. Lions International is usually first on a major disaster, by giving money through local Lions Club to help when a tsunami, earthquake, hurricane, or other disaster happens around the world.
There are many reasons to become a Lion member. As a Lion you will:
Help your community and gain valuable skills
Make an impact on people’s lives – locally and internationally
Learn to become a leader. Lions provide Leadership Training Workshops
Network with other business people and your neighbors
Energize your life and have fun.
Our Number One International Project is Sight. Lions want everyone to see a better tomorrow. That’s why we support sight programs and services including vision screenings, eye banks and eyeglasses recycling. We provide eye care services to those at risk of losing their sight.
If you have an interest in becoming a Lion or would like to meet with a local Lion, come and visit the Lions in your Community.

“We are always looking for new Lions and we would like to meet you,” Woods said.
