Our Way of Serving Leoism
We serve is our Lions motto. Our ideas are to serve promptly anyone, anytime, any where. Leoism functions efficiently because Leo Clubs have a system of leadership and fiscal program that are designed for prompt and decisive action. The international organization, district officers and local clubs have administrative and service committees that are provided with budgetary resources to implement their projects with flexibility. More importantly, our lion leaders are encouraged to develop the foresight to plan as will as the wisdom to act when opportunities to serve arise, unexpectedly or other wise.
An active Leo will be a good Lion. So goes the saying. But it is also the duty of every Leo to further his/her education about Leoism and to seek new information about the working of Lions Clubs throughout the world.
How long has it been since you last read the literature materials in your membership kit? Do you remember when and by whom Lions clubs international was founded? When was the last time you looked over our constitution and bylaws? Do you know what Leo code of ethics is? And what are the Leos objectives?
Be aware of your duties as a member and realize that you have responsibilities as a sponsor of new members. Review the duties of the office you hold and the objectives and functions of the committees you belong to.
Be knowledgeable of Leos current events because as another saying tells us. An informed Leo is a better Leo.
The Leo club motto – Leadership, Experience, and Opportunity – says it all.
Leadership: Leo members acquire skills as project organizers and motivator of there peers.
Experience: They discover how teamwork and cooperation can bring about change in their community and the world.
Opportunity: Leos develop positive character traits and receive recognition for their contributions.
The very foundation of our international association is club members working in harmony in order to serve community and human needs. This is a necessary ingredient for the success of any club and this fellowship, this camaraderie so that the new member feels welcome and past of the club.
Leo members will remember interested in the Leo club as long as it is organized, fun keeps members involved and continues to provide valuable community service. Observant Leo leaders can help prevent the departure of Leo members.
A Tail Twister plays an important role in bringing about fellowship among all club members.
A good Tail Twister can get a laugh from the member being fined, accomplishing a double purpose: that of creating fun and amusement and of leaving the offender in good humor.
A tail twister can certainty arrange for increased fellowship among members by seeing that the same group is not allowed to sit together meeting after meeting.
Basically, the Tail Twister should promote harmony, good fellowship and enthusiasm in the meetings. However, extreme tact should be exercised in order not to create on adverse reaction by the members. Breaking the ice and providing some fun for the members to relax and forget about the pressures of their daily work routines is the key to a successful Tail Twister.
