Lions Clubs International is the largest service club organisation in the world. We have more than 1.44 million members in more than 46,000 clubs worldwide. Lions are everywhere - we're men and women active in more than 208 countries and geographic areas.
Our motto is "We Serve". Founded in 1917, we are best known for fighting blindness, but we also feed the hungry, aid seniors and the disabled, and care for the environment. Lions are a global service network of volunteers that make a difference in their local communities.
Hello to all,
I’d like to personally welcome you to our District Website. Here you can find a range of information from news & events to detail about the global difference that Lions have been making for many years. All clubs within our district are dedicated to serving our community and I invite you to take a look at the many initiatives in which we are proud to have made a significant difference to those in need.
I am pleased to be able to serve as your District Governor this year. My theme this year is ‘UNITE - SERVE - COMMUNICATE’. My intentions are for us to journey through the year together as a united District, communicating the Lions motto “WE SERVE”.
As a Lion our challenges include;
- staying in touch with today’s community needs
- remaining a vital service to those requiring our assistance
- expanding our view to include brokering services ensuring the most vulnerable are receiving help in all aspects of their lives
- attracting new members to help grow our ability to serve the community
Over the past sixty years our District has witnessed the positive change that occurs when serving the community. Today we intend to overcome any barriers to our Lions Clubs being able to develop and implement new areas of service around our District.
Let us offer our communities a voice of reason that cuts through the chaos as we promote the Lions International Mission Statement “To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions clubs”.
As our founder Melvin Jones once said; “I hope there will always be a Land of Beyond for Lions International; a goal that will keep growing larger and larger as we approach it, yet it will keep just out of reach, challenging us to run faster, work harder, think bigger, give more”
Again, I'd like to welcome you to our website; it’s packed with information about what we do in our District. We are always looking for men and women who are ready to make a difference!
If there's not a Lions Club in your area and you would like to help to shape the future of your community, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get one started.
Yours in Service,
