"I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there is any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again. " William Penn

THE LIONS CREED:
He achieves success:
Who lives well, laughs often and loves much, gains the respect of
intelligent people and the love of little children.
Who fills their niche and accomplishes their task whether by an
improved flower, a perfect poem or a rescued soul.
Whose life is an inspiration and memory a benediction.
He is a Lion.
Having fun, promoting our Club, and Lions by using our resources to serve the local and wider community with our support for the young, disadvantaged, needy and community achievements while encouraging new membership.
