Lions Clubs are non-political, non-sectarian service organizations composed of the community's leading business and professional men and women. Membership is by invitation only.
The purpose of a Lions Club is more than good fellowship and club social life, important though these are. It is to recognize community needs and develop means of meeting them, either through its own effort or in cooperation with other agencies.
Lionism is an active and efficient medium for united community effort and enterprise. It is also an outstanding medium for national and world service, exerting tremendous influence for national welfare, international amity and peace, and human progress socially, culturally, and economically. The importance of Lions work in all these fields is widely recognized.
