Lions Club Projects

  • TO CREATE and foster a spirit of understanding among the peoples of the world.
  • TO PROMOTE the principles of good government and good citizenship.
  • TO TAKE an active interest in the civic, cultural, social and moral welfare of the community.
  • TO UNITE the clubs in the bonds of friendship, good fellowship and mutual understanding.
  • TO PROVIDE a forum for the open discussion of all matters of public interest; provided, however, that partisan politics and sectarian religion shall not be debated by Club members.
  • TO ENCOURAGE service-minded people to serve their community without personal financial reward, and to encourage efficiency and promote high ethical standards in commerce, industry, professions, public works and private endeavors.

   
Lions Code of Ethics
  • TO SHOW my faith in the worthiness of my vocation by industrious application to that end that I may merit a reputation for quality of service.
  • TO SEEK success and to demand all fair remuneration or profit as my just due, but to accept no profit or success at the price of my own self-respect lost because of unfair advantage taken or because of questionable acts on my part.
  • TO REMEMBER that in building up my business it is not necessary to tear down another; to be loyal to my clients or customers; and to be true to myself.
  • WHENEVER a doubt arises as to the right or ethics of my position or action towards my fellow men, to resolve such doubt against myself.
  • TO HOLD friendships as an end and not as a means. To hold that true friendship exists not on account of the service performed by one to another, but that true friendship demands nothing but accepts service in the spirit in which it was given.
  • ALWAYS bear in mind my obligations as a citizen to my nation, and my state, and my community, and to give them my unswerving loyalty in word, act and deed. To give them freely of my time, labor and means.
  • TO AID others by giving my sympathy to those in distress, my aid to the weak and my substance to the needy.
  • TO BE CAREFUL with my criticism and liberal with my praise: to build up and not destroy.
