Lions Club Objectives:

  • TO TAKE an active interest in the civic, cultural, social and moral welfare of the community

What it means to be a Lion:

  • Lions are men and women dedicated to serving those in need, whether in their own community or halfway around the world. Membership in Lions club provides people with the opportunity to meet and work with other individuals in a spirit of fellowship, striving toward the common goal of helping those in need. Through their mutual concern of others, members have the opportunity to improve both their local and world communities and develop valuable personal and professional skills
  • TO HOLD friendship as an end not a means. To hold that true friendship exists not on an account of the service performed by one another, but that the true friendship demands nothing but accepts service in the spirit in which it is given
  • ALWAYS bear in mind my obligations as a citizen to my nation, my state, and my community, and to give them my unswerving loyalty in word, act or deed. To give freely of my time, labor and means
  • TO AID my fellow men and women 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

Lions International:

  • The Milpitas Executive Lions Club is part of the world’s largest and most effective community service organization, with more that 1.4 million members. We are one of more than 43,000 Lions clubs in approximately 190 countries and areas. Regardless of what language you speak, religion they practice or politics they espouse, all Lions are dedicated to seeking out and helping those in need.Since our beginning in 1917, we have been united in a single cause; helping those less fortunate. We are tackling the tough problems like blindness and diabetes awareness. In fact, whatever the community needs to make life better, we’re there to help.For more than 85 years, Lions have been recognized throughout the world for their services to the blind and visually impaired. Back in 1925, when Helen Keller challenged the members to become “Knights of the Blind,” she could not have possibly imagined the impact of Lions commitment to blind prevention.
