The Ventura Downtown Lions Club
in Ventura, CA, has been actively seeking to strengthen and support the area's civic, cultural, social, and moral welfare for nearly a century, having been chartered in April 1923. We believe that part of this effort lies in facilitating open and honest discussion about all matters of interest to the citizens of Ventura. We leave debates about politics and religion at the door and work to find common ground with citizens of all backgrounds and beliefs. By developing a shared goal of service, those things that may otherwise divide us are put on the back burner as we build each other and those in our community up.
One of the underlying tenets of our organization is that building up yourself or your own business does not require the tearing down of someone else or another business. Competition breeds success; and as the saying goes, "a rising tide lifts all boats." This is true nationally and statewide, and this is true at home in Ventura.
We firmly believe the Ventura Downtown Lions Club exemplifies "the whole being greater than the sum of its parts." Together, we can do so much more than we can on our own. Each of us brings his or her own unique skills and talents; and when combined with those of others, we make our city, state, nation, and world a better place.
