Ten Good reasons to join a Lions Club
1.In a complex world, Lions provides one of the most basic human needs - the need for friends and friendship.
2. The opportunity to make a difference. As an individual you can have a limited impact, but as part of a group, you can achieve so much more - in your community, your country, your world.
3. Personal growth and development. Membership in Lions aids your growth and education in human relations and personal development.
4. Leadership development. Every Lions member is encouraged, and has the opportunity to build their leadership skills and to serve in a variety of positions, both at club level and beyond.
5. Citizenship in the community. Membership in a lions club brings you more awareness of your community. The average Lions Club has at its heart the intention to make the community it serves a better place to live in, and does this with a variety of programs tailored to the community's needs.
6. Continuing education. Interesting guest speakers bring a range of views and information for club members. Opportunities for personal and leadership development are offered.
7. Fun. Lions is fun. A lot of fun. Each meeting is fun. The club projects are fun. Social activities are fun. And the service is fun.
8. Public speaking skills. Many an individual who joined Lions was afraid to speak in public. Lions develops confidence and skill in public communication, and the opportunity to practice these skills in a friendly setting.
9. Citizenship in the world. Every Lion wears a pin that reads "Lions International". Every Lion is welcome to attend the 41,000+ clubs in more than 205 nations and geographical areas of the world. Some 1.4 million men and women are Lions. Instant friends both in one's own community and the world community.
10. Assistance when travelling Because there are Lions clubs everywhere, help is only a 'phone call away should you need it. Using the International Directory, you can easily contact the local Lions Club, wherever you are.

Q: How much time do I need to commit?
A: Lions give what they can, when they can. We say Family, work then Lions. So family comes first, then employment and some of the time you have left over you could give to the Lions.
Q: How much does it cost to be a Lion?
A: We don't charge fees.
Instead we ask you to participate in 2-3 events which pay the club for labour. These funds are used to cover Lions dues, insurance and cover running costs of the club.
Q: What about dinner meetings?
A: Dinner Meetings are generally low cost dinners at local restaurants or self catered where the charge may be around $10 if needed.
Q: What happens at Dinner Meetings?
A: Dinner meetings are mainly social nights. Sometimes a guest speaker may be invited. Somtimes we have movie nights.
Q: Can my partner join in if they don't actually join?
A: Partners are always welcome but would need to join to vote at meetings.
