FSK Lions Member Handbook

The Francis Scott Key Lions Club is part of a worldwide organization of service clubs known as the International Association of Lions Clubs, or simply Lions Clubs International.

The Lions are men and women dedicated to serving those in need, whether in their own community or halfway around the world. The primary aim of Lionism is service, first to the club's own community, then to those in need wherever they may be.

Each year, Lions Clubs perform services and provide goods to thousands of persons throughout the world, particularly to those with vision problems. Lions Clubs perform far more activities and help more people than any other service organization in the world today.

In addition to humanitarian service, Lions Clubs enjoy fellowship and develop leadership. The Lions have long been the world's largest service club organization; there are Lions Clubs in over 170 countries and geographical locations throughout the world, with a membership of 1,400,000 in more than 40,000 Clubs. Of the major service clubs, the Lions were the first to invite women to membership worldwide.
