First let me
tell you what we are not. We are not a fraternal organization or
affiliated with any political party or religious denomination.
What Lions are.

in the World who are striving to eliminate preventable blindness in
our lifetime. Towards this goal, we support Diabetes Awareness and
prevention, vision screening for glaucoma, macular degeneration and
other common vision problems. We also support Community youth and
elderly activities and strive to make our Community a better place
What is demanded
of a Lion?
All Lions give of
themselves and their time as they can. No Lion is asked to give more
or serve more than they or their family will allows.
Where the Money

by donations & contributions from the public MUST be directed to the
Community or the programs listed above. AT NO TIME may any of this
money be used to support the club or any Lions.
How do we raise
Clubs raise money
from the Community by hosting various fundraisers. Each Club
decides what fundraiser will work best within their Community.

desire to make a difference in the lives of those who must endure
vision problems, suffer from Diabetes or the members of the
