Lions Club of ROSEWOOD Inc
We serve our local community by means of donations, personal labour, moral support, etc. and the global community mainly by means of donations to Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) and the Australian Lions Foundation (ALF) or direct to specific Lions Clubs projects here and overseas. It is up to our members to decide the appropriate means of support and what and who we support.
Our 1.3 million men and women in 205 countries and geographic areas conduct vision and health screenings, build parks, support eye hospitals, award scholarships, assist youth, provide help in time of disaster and much more.
We are the Lions
This month marks 33 years of the incorporation of women as Lions.
Congratulations to all those women who have made a difference by serving their communities and who have taken up leadership roles to develop our clubs and our organisation.
Becoming a Lion
Lions club members are men and women who strive to make a difference in their local community as well as in communities worldwide. Their volunteer efforts go beyond the support of vision care, to addressing unmet health and education needs worldwide.
Volunteers are not paid “ not because they are
worthless, but because they are priceless".
What LIONS Is All About
WHERE DID LIONS BEGIN?
Lionism had its start on June 7th, 1917, when a young man named Melvin Jones founded the
Association in Chicago, Illinois. This Association became International in 1920, when the first
Lions Clubs were organised in Canada. Today Lionism is active in more than 180 nations
throughout the world.
WHAT IS A LIONS CLUB?
A Lions Club is a group of community minded men and women who pool their talents and
labours in aid of needy causes. They attend meetings to determine how they may best serve
their community and implement a variety of service projects. They participate in an
International program of brotherhood and fellowship, based upon service wherever the need
exists, without personal reward and in service to humanity without thought to race, creed,
nationality, religion or politics.
