Lions Club Objectives

The Lions are volunteer members of clubs grouped under and international organization where they enjoy fellowship, develop their leadership capacities, and dedicate part of their free time to help those in need all over the world, while making their individual communities a better place to live.
 
The International Association of Lions Clubs has grown to be the largest service club organization in the world with a membership exceeding 1,370,000 in over 190 countries and geographic areas.
 
Each club, although belonging to the International Association, decides where the money collected from their community is spent.
 
Through the efforts of the Lions Club of Bedford and the Francis Family YMCA a Leos Club, a youth organization under the leadership of Lions Club,  was chartered in the Bedford Public Schools in 2002.

Lions Code of Ethics
 
To show my faith in the worthiness of my vocation by industrious application to the end that I may merit a reputation for quality of service.
 
To seek success and to demand all fair remuneration or profit as my just due, but to accept no profit or success at the price of my own self-respect lost because of unfair advantage taken or because of questionable acts on my part.
 
To remember that in building up my business it is not necessary to tear down another's; to be loyal to my clients or customers and true to myself.
 
Whenever a doubt arises as to the right or ethics of my position or action towards others, to resolve such doubt against myself.
 
To hold friendship as an end and not a means.  To hold that true friendship exists not on account of the service performed by one to another, but that true friendship demands nothing but accepts service in the spirit in which it is given.
 
Always to bear in mind my obligations as a citizen to my nation, my state and my community, and to give them my unswerving loyalty in word, act and deed.  To give them freely of my time, labor, and means.
 
To aid others by giving my sympathy to those in distress, my aid to the weak, and my substance to the needy.
 
To be careful with my criticism and liberal with my praise; to build up and not destroy.
