WHO ARE LIONS?
Our motto is "WE SERVE", people helping people- one or thousands, Lions are the backbone of a caring community. From cutting a pensioners lawn, sponsoring a Seeing Eye dog, to raising funds for and administering an International project such as “Campaign Sight First”  Over US$148,000,000 raised. Eye hospitals are being  built around the world and thousands of cataract surgeries performed. Plus globally each day, countless other projects big and small are completed. Now with Campaign Sight First II Led by 7,000 Lions volunteers, Lions  worldwide raised over US$20million to surpass the US$200 million goal by July 2008.
WHAT TIME DOES BEING A LION TAKE?
Our guide is: Family first, then job, then Lions. It is up to you, although most clubs meet twice monthly, one business and one dinner meeting, and the projects you can manage.
SO! WHO CAN BECOME A LION?
Anyone of good character who agrees with the ethics and the objectives of Lions Clubs  International. All walks of life:-any occupation and from all races, nationalities and religions.
WHAT DOES IT COST TO BE A  LION?
Lions and are respected because they pay for all administration costs themselves. Nothing comes off the top of publicly raised funds. The fees vary from Club to Club - but is around $100+ or - per year, plus cost of the monthly dinner meetings (11) of approx. S25. each depending on Club and Venue. Plus approx. $50-00 or so for sundries annually. Costs over this relate to what you do within Lions ie: attend a District Convention, visit another Club or go to a World Convention etc etc. The Lions world is your oyster. Spouse, partner or friends' costs are for the events only.
