“Lions are men and women who want to help, who want to make a difference, and who want to have fun while doing it,” said Charles Bethards, one of the organizers of the new club who currently serves as president of the Colleyville Lions Club. “Lions give a lot to their communities, but they get back something that’s even more valuable – the satisfaction that comes from changing lives.”
Bethards said that in addition to providing hands-on support, the Lions Club gives members an opportunity to advance worthy causes, serve with friends and become leaders in the community.
A one-hour information session is scheduled for Wednesday, May 20, at 6 p.m. at Bartonville Town Hall for interested community members who want to learn more about Lions and how they can make a difference in their community.
Lion leaders will also be visiting local businesses and community leaders to invite them to join the new club.
