Mission Statement

To Create and Foster a spirit of understanding among all people for
humanitarian needs by providing voluntary services through community
involvement and international cooperation.

 

Lions Code of Ethics

 

TO SHOW my faith in the worthiness of my vocation by industrious
application to the 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's; to be loyal to my clients or customers and true to myself.

WHENEVER a doubt arises as to the right or ethics of my position or
action towards others, to resolve such doubt against myself.

TO HOLD friendship as an end and not 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 is given.

ALWAYS to 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 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.
