We give something back to our community
It can be difficult for one individual to find meaningful ways to improve their community. By joining a community service club such as the Rockville Lions, you will feel a sense of satisfaction from performing valuable community service that will warm your heart and enrich your life.
We feel a real connection to our community
The men and women of the Rockville Lions Club get together for regular meetings and service projects. We learn about the needs of the community and use our collective resources to meet those needs. Working side by side with fellow Lions, you will meet active and retired business people and community leaders.
We help the youth of our community grow into responsible and productive adults
The Rockville Lions Club sponsors a local Cub Scout troop and several baseball teams in the City Youth League. We provide scholarships to deserving Montgomery College students and work with middle school and high school students in Leo clubs (junior Lions clubs). As mentor to these young people, you will be modeling responsible and productive behavior.
Together we can make the world a better place
A strong community service organization with many people working toward the same goal can bring about real results. The Rockville Lions have been serving our community for over 60 years. As part of the world’s largest service organization, we join Lions all over the world to bring about stronger communities, ultimately making the world a better place.
We learn more about our community and world
Twice monthly club meetings feature speakers from all walks of life bringing us information on a wide range of topics, from brewing beer at home to treating river blindness to updates from political leaders to travel into remote areas of the world.
We stay connected with political and civic leaders of Rockville
Through our important role in community service projects, Rockville Lions meet and work closely with the Mayor and the County Executive and their councils as well as the state legislative team representing Rockville. Community leaders actively support the work of the club.
We fill needs in the community that aren’t being met
It takes the entire community – residents, service clubs, religious organizations, businesses and government – to solve the problems of our most vulnerable residents. Rockville is an All American City because of this strong collaboration. It’s great to be a part of that!
We acquire and strengthen leadership skills
All Rockville Lions serve on committees, eventually chairing the work. Members interested in advancement in the Club are groomed for leadership roles by attending seminars and workshops, including a program to improve public speaking skills. Club leadership changes every year, giving plenty of opportunity for advancement.
We find more joy in life
See a child’s grades improve because of eye glasses you provided; hear the profound thanks of a frail senior who is now mobile because of the wheelchair you provided; send a handicapped youngster to summer camp at the Lions’ specially equipped facility. That’s the sound of joy.
We have fun
We play as hard as we work! Traveling as a club, we attend sporting events, parties, and picnics; we even march in parades!
