Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world every day because they share a core belief – to serve their community.

Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest service club organization. We have 1.35 million members in more than 45,000 clubs in more than 206 countries and geographic areas.

Meeting attendance is highly encouraged, but not required. We have many members who are away for much of the year and others who can attend meetings only once in a while.

Our motto is “We Serve”, whether you volunteer a couple hours of your time or several hours there is not a hard and fast rule as to how much time you are required to donate to the Club. Whatever you can do is greatly appreciated!!  The more you are able to put in the more satisfaction you will get back.

We meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month. The social hour starts at 6:30pm and the dinner begins at 7:00pm with a short program following the dinner. Meetings are normally held at the St. Raphaels Episcopal Church Social Hall on Williams Drive, Fort Myers Beach.

The membership application is $70.00. This includes a Lions vest, membership kit and pin and registration with Lions International.

The annual dues are:

$115.00 without meals

$250.00 including meals for all dinners

Dues may be paid bi-annually, (every 6 months):

$60.00 without meals

$130.00 including meals for all dinners

The needs of the world and our community can be overwhelming. Here is an opportunity to work with other like-minded people in caring for others through fund-raising and community activities as well as develop new friendships in the world’s largest service club.
