Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller and communities get better. 
That's because we help where help is needed – in our own communities and around the world –
with unmatched integrity and energy. We Serve! 

Our club's mission is to meet the community's needs through service and philanthropy,
with a special focus on eyesight and diabetes.
