What Lions Are/What Lions Aren't
LIONS ARE members of the world's largest and most active club organization.
LIONS AREN'T looking to build their own personal business connections through membership in a civic club.
LIONS ARE people who have decided to give something back to their communities, who are dedicated to finding people in need, and who meet those needs in an efficient caring way.
LIONS AREN'T people who simply write checks to benefit the hard work of charities in their community, Lions are those people working hard in those community charities.
LIONS ARE men and women who believe that by working with other dedicated Lions, they will accomplish far more for their communities than would be possible alone.
LIONS AREN'T concerned with building personal prestige or reputation.  Lions have a great reputation becuse of the hard work they perform.  Their service speaks for itself.
LIONS ARE committed to solving major, worldwide health and social problems, and realize that solutions are possible when every Lions Club does it's share.
LIONS AREN'T a group that raises funds locally to be sent elsewhere.  Although Lions charities benefit state and worldwide activities, the majority of each Lions Club's activities focus on the local needs.
LIONS ARE people who cherish the friendship and fellowship within their own club, but also feel a close kinship with fellow Lions in more that 190 countries and areas throughout the world.
LIONS AREN'T just about work.  Lions have fun and fellowship.  Friendships made in Lionism last a lifetime, because they are based on a common commitment to service.  Lions work hard, but have fun all along the way.
LIONS ARE patriotic, giving allegiance to their country, while recognizing that all peoples must one day learn to live in peace.
LIONS AREN'T a political organization.  Lions are not about political agendas, platforms or issues.  In fact, most clubs will not allow an active candidate for political office to speak to their Club, unless all other candidates are given the same opportunity.
LIONS ARE dedicated to maintaining the highest ethical and moral standards in their Club and in their personal lives.
LIONS AREN'T a religious organization.  Most Lions have their own personal commitment, which all Lions are encourage to have.  Likewise, Lions Clubs are not fraternal organizations with rituals or special oaths.
