Who are the Lions?
Lions are volunteers who strive to serve the community and our fellow man. We are members of the largest service organization in the world, Lions International, which has over 1.3 million members in over 200 countries. Our main service focus is to eliminate preventable blindness and to aid those with sight impairment issues. Towards this goal, we support Diabetes Awareness and prevention, vision screening for glaucoma, macular degeneration and other common vision problems. We help pay for eye exams and glasses for those who cannot afford them. We are also involved in a variety of other non-sight related service which is provided to our communities through individual Lions Clubs. Our Motto is WE SERVE!
