New Member Orientation Information

Butler Lions Philosophy of Serving the Butler Community

▪ We believe that “deep down” every person desires to help those in need, i.e. “To Serve”.
▪ We offer every person who desires “To Serve” the opportunity to serve as a Butler Lion.
▪ We believe that as a group we can accomplish things that we could not do individually.
▪ We do not believe that a person is “too busy” to become a Lion and serve others in need.
▪ Statistics show that just by joining Lions you will help numerous needy persons annually.
▪ We believe that members will serve as much as they can or are able.
▪  Although the traditional way of serving is via working on projects, we
believe that every person has skills and interests and contacts that can
serve the community in many other ways.

We(and the Butler community) will accept whatever service you can provide.

Why Our Members are Lions
TriFoldPicture BeALion (2)
As a Butler Lions Club Member You’ll join a group of service-minded men and women who volunteer to support the Butler community every day. You’ll also become a member of Lions Clubs International – a respected international organization, a leader in our local community, and a friend to people in need.

Butler members, both men & women, come from all walks of life and are bonded together by a common goal of serving mankind in the Butler area and worldwide. When asked why they became Lions, this theme is most often repeated. As a group we can do things that individually none of us could accomplish. There is an unmistakable feeling of satisfaction experienced when a person helps another person or group or is involved in in activities that improves the quality of life in our community. In the words of our founder Melvin Jones, “you will never get very far until you start doing something for somebody else”. Our members enjoy the friendship and camaraderie of the group and our families share in this on special occasions such as spouse/friend nights, family picnics, and a Christmas party.
