This article was published on: 01/28/17 1:26 AM by Mike Minarsky
Lions International approved the application of the Lisbon Centennial Lions Club on January 13, 2017. This group of generous, enthusiastic men and women are ready to serve their local communities needs.
The Lions Clubs International are celebrating their 100th year and therefore the newly approved club from Lisbon earned the title of the Lisbon Centennial Lions Club as the 53rd club in Eastern Ct and the newest Lion’s Club in the state of Ct.
Lisbon Centennial Lions Club is now one of 46,000 Lion’s Clubs actively serving their communities in 200 countries of the world. Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest service club organization. Its 1.4 million members are dedicated to bettering the quality of life for the handicapped, the poor, the sick and the aged. The motto of Lions Clubs International is “WE SERVE,” and Lions live this motto with enthusiasm. Where there is a need, there is a Lion.
A Lions Club is not a fraternal, social or political organization. It is a group of civic-minded men and women who have banded together to do the things they cannot do alone. Lions are willing and anxious to give their time, energy and resources in service to others. Lions Club members are rewarded by the pleasure and satisfaction of serving others; by improving the community in which he or she lives; and by endeavoring to leave the world a better place than he or she found it. By investing time and effort in club activities, a person receives dividends in new friendships,
new status in the community, many blessings, and a heart-warming sense of fulfillment from doing something good for others. For more information about this, the largest service organization in the world, visit the Lions International website at www.lionsclubs.org
A Charter Night has been scheduled for Sunday, April 2, 2017 to induct the Lisbon Centennial Lion’s Club Charter Members into the history books. Between now and the charter night, new members joining will have the privilege of becoming charter members in this new club of men and women of all ages and have charter member status recorded in the history of the club as the first charter members.
