LIONS MOTTO: "WE SERVE"
MEETING PLACE: Eagle River Lions Den @ the Eagle River Lions Park
DATE: 1st & 3rd Monday of the Month @ 7:00pm
The Sleeping Lady Lions club was formed in 1992. Many of the charter members were members of the former Eagle River Lioness club.
Our main mission is to provide community service and aid to anyone in need in our community. We accomplish this though the giving of our time, to raise money through fundraising events and "hands on" service projects
We also sponsor a youth lions group for youths 11-19 years of age. The Bear Mt. Leos work along side the Sleeping lady lions as well as many projects of their own to help their community.
If you are interested in learning more about Lions and our club, please feel free to attend one of our meetings and/or download one of the brochures below.
Who Are Lions?
Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world. The 1.35 million members of our volunteer organization in 206 countries and geographic areas are different in many ways, but share a core belief – community is what we make it.
In 1917, Melvin Jones, a Chicago business leader, told members of his local business club they should reach beyond business issues and address the betterment of their communities and the world. Jones' group, the Busines
Circle of Chicago, agreed.
After contacting similar groups around the United States, an organizational meeting was held on June 7, 1917, in Chicago, Illinois, USA. The new group took the name of one of the invited groups, the "Association of Lions Clubs," and a national convention was held in Dallas, Texas, USA in October of that year. A constitution, by-laws, objects and a code of ethics were approved.
Within three years, Lions became an international organization. Since then, we've earned high marks for both integrity and transparency. We're a well-run organization with a steady vision, a clear mission, and a long – and proud – history
Lions are groups of service-minded men and women who are interested in doing volunteer work to improve their communities. We are young people, families and Baby Boomers alike.
