WHO WE ARE
Since 1917, Lions have met the needs in their communities and continued to improve the areas in which they live.
The Morris Lions Club of Illinois is a 38 member volunteer organization whose major emphasis is on helping the visually and hearing impaired. In addition, many other community activities and services are done each year. The Board of Directors meet the first Thursday evening of the month at 6:30 at Eagle’s Hall and our Regular Club meeting is the third Thursday of the month. Business is conducted and sometimes a speaker gives a program. Members are encouraged to attend meetings when possible and to participate in as many projects as they can. The club is run by officers who are elected each year by the membership. Committee chairmen are appointed by the President to organize the many projects and the members provide the manpower.
The Morris Lions are a group of volunteer citizens, from a wide range of professions, trades, and ages, united in our many causes. LIONS are apolitical, nonsectarian, and do not base membership on race, creed or color. We are men and women who volunteer our time and talents to humanitarian causes in the local and worldwide communities. By conducting service projects and raising funds, LIONS strive to help those in need, wherever need exists. We have fun and fellowship, but most importantly, we serve our community. YOU can too! Where there is a need, there is a Lion!!
