Come join us on Thursday Feb. 9 as Florida Lions District 35-I Governor John Geary installs new Lions into our Club. This year the Fort Myers Beach LIONS Club celebrates 65 years of service and Lions Clubs International celebrates 100 years of serving the needs of others. Do you think you have something to offer the community? Of course, you do, so please join your local Lions Club, we need you.
Our 46,000 clubs and 1.4+ million members make us the world’s largest service club organization. The Lions Club is not a fraternal, social, or political organization. It is a group of civic-minded men and women who have banded together to do the things they cannot do alone. Lions Clubs provide their communities with service projects in the four key areas of sight, youth, disaster relief, and other humanitarian efforts. A person is rewarded in Lionism by the pleasure and satisfaction of serving others; by improving the community; and by endeavoring to leave the world a better place than how he or she found it.
The Fort Myers Beach Lions have been involved in almost every Beach activity and have taken an important part in all community affairs. They are the drivers behind the annual Shrimp Festival that generates a substantial amount of revenue for the Town, and the businesses on the Beach. The Lions have sponsored the Shrimp Festival for 59 years with pride knowing residents love the Festival, consider it part of their local heritage, and that people make their vacations plans around the Festival.
For the local Lions Club to continue to help where help is needed – in the Fort Myers Beach community and around the world, we need members. If you would like the community to continue to have residents benefit from the service projects, scholarships and the Shrimp Festival then please join. Just fill out the membership application and return it to email@example.com today and tomorrow you can start making a difference in the community.
