Why Become a Lion


Why I joined the Lions Club

I am newer member of the Lion's Club, but my husband has been a Lion for 30 years. This last 10 years, I have so enjoyed being a part of the community, I have learned how to give vision and hearing tests, packed baskets of food and gifts for the needy at Thanksgiving and Christmas, worked at the special Olympics to get glasses for all the participants that needed them. I have loved every minute of it!

Now, I am getting ready to start a Leo Lion's Club at the local high school, Rocky Mountain High, and I am really looking forward to getting this next generation involved in giving back to the community. I think it is a great way to "train up our children". If you live locally and would like to be a part of a wonderful service organization, please let me know. We are a small club and definitely looking for new members.
