Lions are an international network of 1.35 million men and women dedicated to making a difference locally and globally.
Lions meet the needs of our communities and the world, ranging from assisting the visually impaired and working with local youth to medical missions and disaster relief.
Since 1917, Lions have met the needs in their communities and continued to improve the areas in which they live. As long as there are needs around the world, we will work to meet those needs.
If you are interested in becoming a Lion, contact your local Lions club and express interest in learning more. A club locator can be found on the Lions Clubs International Web site www.lionsclubs.org.
