Portrait of a Lions Member

We imagine to ourselves that a Lions Member is a role model we would like to identify with.

Here are his qualities:

He fulfills and recognizes, by his actions, the idea of selfless help to others and is ready to help those in need of him, to assist those who stumble and provide aid to the needy.

 "Love Thy Neighbor as Yourself" and "The reward for doing good is doing good"

 He is proactive in the public sphere, in his community and his country and willing to participate in promoting them.

"Taking care of the individual also means taking care of society"

He is loyal to his nation, country, family and friends.

He believes in the value of his professionalism through strict application and high quality service, aspires to succeed and demands only justice; does not seek achievement by exploiting his position or through dubious moves; and does not build himself up at the expense of others.

"A person must be at peace with himself and credible in his community"

He  believes in unrelenting true friendship, honesty and integrity as a goal and not as a means, and nurtures friendly ties with Club members.

He is faithful to ideals of morality and positive traits, and behaves respectfully, with patience and tolerance towards his fellow humans. In times of doubts in his behavior he restrains his urges and judges himself harshly.

He accepts Club authority, shows self discipline in implementing management decisions and acknowledges the vitality of its effective running; sees himself as an equal to his colleagues and is not arrogant, thereby contributing to the unity of his Club, the deepening of its activities and the spirit of camaraderie.

He takes part in Club activities, shows initiative and enthusiasm and contributes his skills, knowledge and time.

He is careful with his criticism and generous with his compliments so as to be constructive and not destructive.

He is known for his positive qualities, making him worthy of being counted as a Club member and fulfilling the lofty ideals of Lions International.

 The stated purposes of Lions Clubs International are:

  • 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.
  • To Help  each citizen or group in the community that needs support, understanding, advise and guidance.
