We serve the needs of our local communities, state, nation and the world.

Join us in making our communities and the world better places to live.
Our Lions and LEO club members are people who care about people in their local community!
We do this in various ways: - community fundraising and giving grants of money to local community organisations and great causes!; donating our own time and skills; Community Engagement activities; LEO Club (Younger members)
The total of our efforts out-weighs that of the individual, and by doing things together, we share a common cause - that of a better and more tolerant and caring community.
