  • Lions District 4-C2 provides community services to six counties in northwestern California. The District stretches from the Golden Gate to the Oregon border and east to the Sacramento River Delta, and comprises 55 individual Lions, Lioness and Leo Clubs, with over 1500 members. Lions Club members are both men and women, while Lioness Clubs are auxiliaries whose members are primarily women. Leo Clubs are made up of high school students who work in the Community under the guidance of a sponsoring Lions Club. So there are opportunities for everyone to participate in service to the Community through Lionism.

Local churches, businesses, community service and health organizations partner with us to provide guests with groceries, medical and dental screenings, prayer, haircuts, lunch, veteran services, music, a kids’ carnival, children’s shoes, job and career services, community services, family portraits and more — at no charge to guests. Approximately $1,000,000 worth of goods and services are provided to the 5,000-10,000 Guests of Honor who attend each event.

    Our Approach

    Event guests are treated as Guests of Honor at community outreaches events. Thousands attend to experience a poverty-free day filled with free food, services and hope.

    The heart and soul of every one of our Community Events is compassion. Many Guests of Honor are working families living in, or on the fringes, of poverty. The Community Event gives them a hand up during difficult times.

Community Club Management

community

Introduction:

A community club is also called a community center where some members of a community join and discuss the welfare of their community. Things like social awareness, public information, and other things covered in the community gathering.

Many friendship and bonding can happen at a community club; you get to meet people with the same background and interest of yours.  At a community club, you get to voice out your views and bring about a change in your community.

community

A community can be of different sizes, some clubs are big with lots of people, but other communities can be smaller with fewer people. The primary purpose of having a community is to discuss various things which happen in the community.  Most of the times, the communities consider correct things and bring about changes in their area.  But some clubs join and talk about various things but do not bring about any change or reform the local community. In some clubs, people who are jobless at home gather around and criticize the others who have a decent life.

There can also be so much misunderstanding in the community clubs. To control all misbehavior and cheap talk a community organization has to be managed properly. A group can be responsible for many things like handling money, implementing important tasks, convincing all the club members to come to a common ground, etc.  All these require proper managing; if you do not manage a club properly then everyone will start to behave in a way they like, and there will be no purpose for the organization.

The flowing are some of the points to make a note to manage the community clubs:

  • Assign a leader.
  • Club Meetings.
  • Club Membership.
  • Handling Budget.

Assign a leader:

A club without a leader is like a flock of sheep without a Sheppard.  The club members are open to share their opinions and discuss any point with the other club members, but when everyone wants to voice out their opinion, it may lead to chaos. One might be offended by another person’s comment, to avoid all this confusion we always need to elect a leader who can maintain decorum in the club.

Club meeting:

Organizing club meetings can help the members of the club to discuss the various things planned for the week or month can help the organization to be organized and prepared. Development of the club and other things like budgets for different activities can be sorted out in the meetings.

Club Membership:

Since most clubs are open for anyone to join, it will be best to have a group policy so that the number of users’ maintained and managed.

Handling Budget:

To implement various topics discussed in the club needs money. You need to plan out on how much to spend on each item which you are going to spend.  Sorting out money must be assigned to a person who can be in charge for all the money transactions that happen in the club.
