Members have the opportunity to meet and work with other individuals in a spirit of fellowship, striving toward a common idea or goal. New members are essential, bringing fresh ideas, passion, and attitude to our club. They often take the initiative and show their capacity for leadership as a committee chair or as a club officer. Good intent accomplishes little, take what you have to give and do something about it. That is what it means to be a Lion.
New members are expected to give freely of their time, talent and energy whenever possible. They should attend as many club meetings as they can, be available for club assignments, abide by the Lions Code of Ethics, be knowledgeable about the objectives and aims of the Lions and always support all club officers.
