TRUSSVILLE — A new Lions Club is being formed in Trussville. Organizers are canvassing the area in the search for service-minded individuals interested in joining the cause.
The effort to form the new club is being led by Lions District Governor Robert Thompson, of the Prattville Lions Club, and his Membership Growth Team. Additional support is being provided by the Margaret Lions Club. Locally, Lion Pedro Pino has committed to lead the effort within the area to make a Trussville area Lions Club become a reality.
Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest Service club organization with over 1.4 million members in more than 48,000 clubs in over 200 Countries. The Lions’ motto is “We Serve”.
Lions are most widely known for their service work with the vision impaired, providing eye examinations, glasses, and surgeries to those who are in need, but maybe unable to pay.
Additional core areas of service include diabetes concerns, children’s cancer needs, feeding the hungry, environmental projects, and disaster relief. Each local Lions Club determines the service activities for their club. Lions may also partner with other Leadership groups within the area to provide more hands for more service to meet the needs of the community.
