Lions Make a Difference, Everyday, Everywhere!
Lions Clubs Fit Your Lifestyle
Lions Clubs International offers a volunteer opportunity that fits your lifestyle. Whether you are looking to lend a helping hand or pursue a leadership role, Lions has an option for you.
Why Join the Monocacy Lions Club?
Lions offer an opportunity to serve. Lions is a service club. This is the best reason for becoming a Lion: the chance to do as a group what we cannot hope to achieve on our own, to serve our fellow man, and to make our community and the world a better place. Our motto is simple, but says it all: "We Serve!"
Lions Offer Fellowship
If you are relatively new to the community, joining a Lions Club is a great way to meet and fellowship with people in your community. Our membership is made up of people from all walks of life - business leaders (most of them local) , farmers, government workers, lawyers, teachers, local politicians, journalists, and many other occupations. Some are retired but many still work.
Being a Lion allows you to help change lives, and you can commit as much time as you wish and as your schedule allows.
Lions Help Members Develop Leadership Skills
Every Lions member is encouraged, and has the opportunity to build their leadership skills and to serve in a variety of positions, both at local club level and beyond. Our Lions District offers Leadership Training opportunities (leadership Retreat and Leadership Institute).
Develop Business Contacts
Meet other business and professional men and women in the community. You can become involved and broaden your opportunities for business contacts.
A Club’s time commitment depends mainly on the service activities they undertake. The Monocacy Lions usually meet twice a month to share a meal and as needed to plan projects, provide community service and conduct club business.
Lions Clubs allow you to meet and share with people of like interests.
