What inspired you to join Lions and serve My community?

My motto is that the sun shines for everyone.

I was inspired to join the Lions Club and serve humanity for several reason. It was mostly from a deep sense of spiritual duty and a desire to give back to others.

The idea of “others” is fundamental in my understanding of life.

Who is God without Man and what is the role of Man in the universe?

I also had Family members who were Lions and I had the opportunity to observe the great friendships that they shared with others.

Ever since joining the Lions Club in 1983, I have had the honor to meet wonderful people and throughout the years, great leaders in the world.

To serve and to be at the service of others is the all the meaning that I give to my life.

Sometimes those who need help are the ones that do not say it. I am a happy man and proud to be a Lion for 40 years now.
