Lions are men and women who volunteer their time to humanitarian
Bringing The World Together
Lions Motto Contest Winner
Lions are ordinary people just like you. Some are businessmen,
teachers, fathers or empty nester retirees. One thing all Lions
have in common is their desire to improve their communities, to
help the needy and less fortunate. Virtually all communities
have a local Lions Club. Lions volunteer their time, services
and expertise; working to improve the quality of life in the
local and global community. I am sure you have noticed the Lions
Logo entering communities wherever your travels have taken you.
Many communities have parks, sports facilities, community centres
and much much more, built and or maintained by local Lions Club
members just like you. Without Lions, many communities would not
have much needed facilities and services. The unselfish caring
members of the Lions Club offer a variety of goods and services
to raise the funds required to provide the support to those fallen
on hard times, and disaster relief in areas hit by catastrophe.
It Takes a Lion
The Lions spirit is the spirit of family, nurturing and sharing.
Lionism takes pride in the accomplishments and contributions of others
and the group. No room for selfishness envy or ego in the Lions family.
Lions give, nurture, inspire and serve unselfishly and proudly for the
betterment of humanity and the growth of civilisation.
If you have spare time on your hands, the Lions can use you.
If you want to improve your community, the Lions can use you.
If you are new to your community, the Lions will welcome you.
Join the Lions, have fun and improve the quality of life in your

"Lions bring invaluable expertise or a passion for the
causes and a commitment to the purposes of Lionism.
Most Lions consider their volunteer service as their
civic duty to their community, their nation and to
the betterment of humanity. Volunteers accept
significant responsibilities most organizations
could not afford, yet could not exist without.
Without accounatbility of its members, volunteer
organizations could not function. Individual
dedication and commitment to excellence is what
makes Lions a formidable team in the world today."

My Presidential Motto —
"Beyond the Horizon"
Accomplished people from around the world have led our great association in its over 100-year history. While each international president brings a unique perspective and expertise to Lions Clubs International, there has (and always will be) a single constant that unites all Lions: service. With this as a guide, each president is committed to helping clubs increase their service, and as a result, their impact on
our local and global communities.

Most people spend their lifetime in pursuit of God and inner peace. My worship of God is to serve His living manifestations on earth. My peace and happiness come when those around me enjoy peace and happiness.
THIS PHILOSOPHY HAS SHAPED MY PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL LIFE.
"Let us reach out to others and impart our ideals-that the world is one family and no child can go to sleep in fear of what tomorrow will bring."

Dr. Jitsuhiro Yamada's Theme
Dignity . Harmony . Humanity.
“Bring Hope and Dignity through Service”
Joseph Preston's Theme
Strenghten the Pride
“A “pride” is a close-knit family of lions, as
can be found in the savannahs of
central Africa. Each member of the pride has responsibilities.
Whether they are the hunters, protectors, caregivers,
teachers, or learners, they work as a team, for survival and
prosperity. If even one member of the pride does not fulfill
its role, it can affect the entire group.”
Barry J. Palmer's Theme
Follow Your Dream
“A dream embraces our most cherished longings. It embodies our very identity.
We often won't feel fulfilled as human beings until we relize our dreams.”
2012-2013 International President
Wayne A. Madden's Theme
In A World of Service
In a world of need, there is someone to help. In a world of suffering,
there is someone who cares.
In a world of destruction, there is someone to provide relief.
In a world of illiteracy, there is someone to teach. And in a world of
service, there is one name that stands out among others -
Lions Clubs International.
That's what we do.
That's what we have always done.
It is our motto, and the reason we exist.
Our 2011-2012 international president's theme, I Believe, expresses the thought that the Lions of the world have created a culture organized around a belief in the value of giving back - and a belief that one person truly can make a difference.
I planted A TREE
2011-2012 International President Wing-Kun Tam is challenging Lions around the world to
plant one million trees this year.
