What Is A Lions Club?

centennial_logo


The Winthrop Harbor Lions Club is one of more than 46,000 active Lions Clubs serving their communities in 193 countries and geographical areas of the FREE WORLD. Although the youngest, Lions International is the world’s largest service organization and is the first one to be over a million strong. It’s members are dedicated to the goal of bettering the quality of life for the handicapped, the poor, the sick and the aged. The official motto is WE SERVE and the lions of the world annually sponsor over a half million projects and spend over $600 million for the betterment of their communities.

The Winthrop Harbor Lions Club is not a social or fraternal club; it is pledge by local civic minded men and women of all ages who are willing and anxious to give their time, energy and resources in service to their community. The genius of Lionism is that local clubs have complete autonomy in determining its area of service to its own community. Lions keep uppermost in their minds those who have not been blessed with good health and opportunity, and try to create an atmosphere where everyone will think and feel something about the other guy.

A Winthrop Harbor Lion is rewarded by the pleasure and satisfaction of serving others; by improving the community in which they live; and by endeavoring to leave the world a better place than they found it. Their reward is in direct proportion to the effort experienced. By investing time and effort in club activities, they receive leadership training, rewarding dividends in new friendships and networking with new contacts, new status in their community, and a new awareness of God’s many blessings, and a new heart-worming sense of usefulness and fulfillment because they are doing something good for others.
