Changing the World With You

Lions Club International President Dr. Patti Hill

Dear Lions,

I am truly honored and humbled to serve as your international president, and I am happy to share with you my message of Changing the World.

For years, Lions and Leos have been changing the world, one community at a time. Now, collectively, we are setting bold ambitious goals to meet the needs of our neighbors, our communities and our world. Boldness and action are exactly what we can deliver as we tackle the biggest challenges that lie before us.

Boldness, focused on success and excellence, and commitment to service: these are the benchmarks we must use to grow our clubs and districts so we can be there every time we’re called on to serve.

At our international convention in Boston, I had the privilege of announcing our annual priorities and our four-year initiative, MISSION 1.5, which is our drive to reach 1.5 million members worldwide by the conclusion of the 2027 Lion year. Although I've been a Lion for over 30 years, it never ceases to amaze me how, as Lions and Leos, we rise to any challenge placed in front of us. I’m excited to embark on this exciting mission with you as we grow our membership and capacity to serve.

I hope the stories in this issue will not only inspire you to grow your clubs and expand your service, but also to share your own stories. When you share your service and membership stories, you let the world know what it means to be a Lion. Every day is a great day to extend an invitation to a potential Lion to join us.

Let’s be bold and lead the way to a better future and a world of change.
