Being a Lion means different things to different people, but generally, being a Lion brings a feeling of belonging to a group of like-minded people who dedicated their time and support to others and the community.
Read what being a Lion means to a few of our Club members.
Lion Andrew Stacey says
“Being a Lion means that I get to demonstrate my enjoyment of helping others through types of different events, being proud of serving the community, helping others without expecting anything in return, being a part of a close-knit group that offers diversity, camaraderie and a fun time. I feel a sense of empowerment and achievement through volunteering my time.
As the city of Adelaide is a progressive Club, I’m proud of being part of a movement that shows development and keeping up with the times – introducing female members, enlisting IT services to broaden their scope of reaching out to others, using a mascot to appeal to children at events and plans to host an engaging Convention in 2017.”
Lion Ray Najar says
“From my earliest memories of being invited into the world wide family of being a Lion’s member, I soon learn the meaning of giving back to the community what the community had given to me. Serving others less fortunate, helping the elderly, developing community facilities and to quote one of ethics, ‘delivering and serving in words acts and deeds’, without any expectation of self reward.
Just trying to do our part as a team to make the world a better place. There is no greater reward than having the ability to serve.”
Lion Warren Wood says
“Being part of the world’s largest service club for 49 years means a great deal to me because:
a) it enables me to participate in many worthwhile community projects designed to help those in need which I could not undertake as an individual.
b) Membership affords me the opportunity of continuing a family tradition of free will service, readily given by Christian parents, to those in need.
c) As a Christian, it also gives me the opportunity of practicing my faith, while rending assistance to those in need of support.
d) It has led to my making friends with many fellow Lions with like attitudes to service. Membership is a privilege, not a chore!”
