|The Lions Creed
They achieve success, who lives
well,laughs often and loves much.

Who fills their niche and
accomplishes their task.
Who leaves the world better than

Who never lacks appreciation of
earth's beauty, nor fails to express it.
Who always sees the best in others
and gives the best they have.
Whose life is an inspiration and
whose memory is a benediction.
They are Lions!
