5M7 Lioness

In 1975, Lions Clubs International Board of Directors voted to recognize groups of women who had been serving in Lions clubs auxiliaries all over the world. Some of the auxiliaries had been in existence and service in Lionism for nearly 50 years. For the first time, these woman's groups were united under one name, one banner, one emblem and one constitution. 

Lioness Clubs support their sponsoring Lions Club in a variety of service activities in addition to planning and implementing projects of their own in their community. Lioness members are women who take an active interest in the cultural and social welfare of the community in which they live. They believe citizens joined together can initiate and carry out programs which will make their community and the world a better place in which to live.

The staying pwer of Lioness Clubs in District 5M7 indicates it meets the needs of women who wish to unite with other women in community ad humanitarian service.  District 5M7 Lionss Clubs are guided by a Lioness Associate. 



Lions Clubs International

Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world every day because they share a core  belief – to serve their community.

Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization. We have 1.35 million members in more than 46,000 clubs in more than 209 countries and geographic areas.

Lions have a dynamic history. Founded in 1917, we are best known for fighting blindness, but we also volunteer for many different kinds of community projects – including caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled.

Lions give sight. By conducting vision screenings, equipping hospitals and clinics, distributing medicine and raising awareness of eye disease, Lions work toward their mission of providing vision for all. We have extended our commitment to sight conservation through countless local efforts and through our international SightFirst Program, which works to eradicate blindness.

Lions serve youth. Our community projects often support local children and schools through scholarships, recreation and mentoring. Internationally, we offer many programs, including the Peace Poster Contest, Youth Camps and Exchange and Lions Quest.

Leo Program provides the youth of the world with an opportunity for personal development through volunteering. There are approximately 144,000 Leos and 5,700 Leo clubs in more than 140 countries worldwide.

Lions award grants. Since 1968, the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) has awarded more than US$700 million in grants to support Lions humanitarian projects around the world. LCIF was also ranked the number one nongovernmental organization in a 2007 study by The Financial Times.

Lions help during disasters. Together, our Foundation and Lions are helping communities following natural disasters by providing for immediate needs such as food, water, clothing and medical supplies – and aiding in long-term reconstruction.

Lions are active. Our motto is "We Serve." Lions are part of a global service network, doing whatever is necessary to help our local communities.
