Lions are...

  • People who have decided to dedicate a small part of their time and efforts to support the needy in their communities.
  • People who identify the needs of others and set about meeting those needs.
  • People who enjoy working in comrade-ship to help those less fortunate than themselves.
  • People who enjoy themselves and who experience still further enjoyment while helping others.
