Welcome to the
Coloma Lions Club
Who We are
Coloma Lions are ordinary people, just like you, who have an interest in serving their community through charitable projects and fun events. Our members are from a broad slice of life— ladies, gentlemen, farmers, businessmen, retirees, entrepreneurs, real estate agents, politicians, etc. You do not have to be important or well off to be a Lion. Lions are an inclusive group that welcomes all who wish to serve.
The Coloma Lions Club was formed and chartered in December 1952 by community citizens who saw the need for a local Lions Club to help serve the Coloma and Paw Paw Lake area and a way to have fun doing so.
Good works that serve the community
Besides promoting the general goals of Lions Clubs International and the Lions Clubs of Michigan, the Coloma Lions Club continues on with long standing projects like:
- Eye Glasses & Hearing Aids: Collecting unused eye glasses and hearing aids to refurbish and distribute to those in need, as well as paying for new prescription glasses for children and adults who have a true financial need and cannot afford to buy their own.
- White Cane Week: Collecting donations and funds during “White Cane Week” to support programs to help the blind and disabled.
- Eye Screening: Hosting an Eye Screening and Kid’s Sight Trailer at the Glad Peach Festival in August.
Fun Fund Raising Events
It is not all work! In order to help fund the projects we work on, we try to have fun too by hosting several revenue raising projects during the year! For a complete list of projects and events, please view the Projects & Events Page.
Please feel free to contact any Coloma Lions Club member regarding any of the activities or events we host, or any program offered by the club or Lions Club International.
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 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, as 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.
