Welcome to the Park West Lions Club
The Park West Lions are a
group of men and women who volunteer their time to humanitarian causes in the
area and the world community. As part of International Lions Clubs, we are part
of the world's largest service organization. We conduct fund raisers
and service projects to help those in need. The Lions' motto is "We
For more than ninety years the Lions have been recognized throughout the
world for their service to the blind and visually impaired. A majority
of the world's eye banks are established and supported by Lions, as are
hundreds of clinics, hospitals and eye research centers. One such center, the
Virginia Lions Eye Institute, is located at the FairfaxINOVAHospital.
Over the forty-five years of existence of our Lions club, countless members
of our local community have been helped with free quality eye care,
eyeglasses, eye surgery, guide dogs, hearing examinations and hearing aids,
that they would not otherwise be able to obtain. We also support
various youth activities such as scouts and baseball teams. We own and
maintain a cabin at the Northern Virginia Youth Camp located near Paris,
VA. In 2001, we opened the ParkWestLionsCommunity Center located just off
Sudley Road at 8620
Sunnygate Drive. This center is used by
the club for many of its functions, many other community organizations use
the center and it is available for rent by residents of PrinceWilliamCounty
and surrounding areas. Of course we also collect
used eyeglasses for cleaning and reuse at our satellite location of the
Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center of Northern Virginia.

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.
