Sharing Individualism, Strengthening Community
The key to creating a sense of community is finding things in common. All Lions share an interest in and commitment to service. But they may share other interests as well. Such as motorcycles. A profession. Or an ethnic heritage.
Often a shared interest brings even greater energy to a group of Lions – and enlivens their connection to the local community. That’s why we offer you the opportunity to start aspecial interest club.
Types of Special Interest Clubs
A special interest club focuses on one element that many of its members have in common. Here are just a few examples:
- Boise Special Olympics Lions Club
- Montgomery County Police and Fire Fighters Lions Club
- Australian Parliament Lions Club
- Fairbanks Snowmobile Fun Lions Club
- Las Vegas Opticians Lions Club
- Miami Cuban Lions Club
- England Helen Keller Internet Lions Club
The possibilities are endless.
Chartering a Special Interest Club
A Lions club that is based on a special interest can be chartered just like a traditional club. You will need:
- 20 or more charter members
- A sponsoring club, district cabinet or district committee, region or zone
- The district governor’s approval
- Completed charter application
- Appropriate charter fees
