6 Reasons to Become a Lion Club Member!

, by fitone

People considering joining their local Lions Club often ask, “Why should I become a Lion?” Here are a handful of reasons

  1. Serve the community.
  2. Lions are committed to partnering with local leaders and organizations, identifying the unique needs of their communities and surrounding areas, and planning service projects that address those needs. From community clean-up projects to food drives to servicing the blind, deaf and less fortunate, Lions help people in need who are close to home.
  3. Make a difference in the world.
  4. A small act like collecting recycled glasses may not seem like much at first, but when those glasses are distributed around the world through Lions sight missions that change lives, you’ll soon discover that Lions are making a big impact. Lions are everywhere: teaching children to read, responding to disaster, fighting measles, providing clean water, enhancing the health of our community and bringing awareness to Diabetes.
  5. Enjoy a rewarding experience.
  6. There is no greater feeling than making a positive impact on someone’s life. Giving back to your community empowers our community members and empowers ourselves
  7. Make new friends.
  8. Joining a local Lions club is a great way to connect with other people in your community and make new friends or consider starting your own club! Serving together can help build relationships that last a lifetime.
  9. Learn, grow and share.
  10. Through volunteer work and community service, Lions are learning new things and developing leadership skills every day. Learn how to plan a food drive and feed the hungry. Learn about the risks of diabetes, and share your knowledge with community members to help them lead healthier lifestyles.
  11. Grow as a family.
  12. Lions clubs offer opportunities for families to volunteer together. Become a Lion with your spouse, children, grandchildren and siblings, and start spending quality time together while serving the community.
