Lions Traditions

Motto: We Serve

Slogan: Liberty, Intelligence, Our Nations Safety


Where Lions meet,
Be present Lord,
To weld our hearts in one accord,
To do thy will, Lord
Make us strong,
To aid the weak and right the wrong.


And now may the Lord
Bless you and keep you
May the Lord be gracious unto you
May the Lord lift up his countenance unto you
And give you peace,
Now and forever more.


Not Above you
Not Beneath you
But With you
