Joseph “Joe” Preston

Dewey, Arizona, USA



A “pride”is a close-knit family of lions, that can be found in the savannahs of central Africa. Each member of the pride has responsibilities. Whether they are the hunters, protectors, caregivers, teachers, or learners, they work as a team, for survival and prosperity. If even one member of the pride does not fulfill its role, it can affect the entire group.

There is another group of Lions just as proud. But unlike the lions of Africa, these Lions aren’t feared. Instead they are admired and respected. They, too, form a ring of protection, and they have shown themselves to be skilled hunters – providing food for the hungry and tending to the needs of a different flock. These Lions don’t restrict themselves to grassy plains. Their territory has spread to every corner of the world, and they bring goodness wherever they exist It’s us – the 1.35 million members of Lions Clubs International.

The English dictionary provides another definition of the word “Pride” – a feeling of happiness that you get when you or someone you know does something good. It is not the pride of being boastful; it is the pride of accomplishment in building communities, doing good, and reaching out to assist others.

Lions are indeed a proud organization. There is a feeling of pride shared among our members, knowing that our commitment to serve the needs of others is what has made us, and keeps us, the global leader in humanitarian service. It is the same pride that has sustained us for 97 years.

We can “Strengthen the Pride” by bringing the full Lion’s family, closer together, working in a spirit of cooperation and understanding, with each Lion member doing their share. And we can “Strengthen the Pride” through our many meaningful accomplishments. This is the platform for not only success this year, but through our centennial and well into the next hundred years.
