Tina Oberlin asked to join the Romeoville Lions club this week. She told severeal people that the Crest Hill Lions are antiwoman. The Crest Hill lions are good people who do good things in town. I think Tina should support the Lions in her own town where she is an alderman.

Perhaps the Romeovill Lion should not speak on topics that it knows nothing about. Are woman allowed to join the C/H Loins Club ?

If you were a woman and woman are not allowed to join, would you support the club ? And how would you do that ?

In 1986, Lions Club International changed their constitution to allow women to become Lions Club members. Prior to that time women were relegated to the Lioness Club program. Although there are still Lions Clubs without women members, the vast majority of Lions Clubs have learned the value of women members to their club. Men and women working together is not something new, it happens every day in our homes and in our work place.

The Crest Hill Lions Club has yet to allow any woman join the Club.
Anti Woman when it comes to the Club ? For Sure !!

She could get into CHLions, if she wanted. Mayor Ray could talk with Nate and get the rules changed. They vote together. They play together. They can make it happen.

Truth be told, she went to Romeoville with Candi. Both of them are up to something.

Against women, says who??
I know firsthand this is not the case. I am even pretty sure that if you would check, you would find the Lion mascot that appears at several events is a woman who is happy to volunteer and is appreciated for her work.
Sorry I had to ruin the magic behind the mascot and tell you it is not a REAL LION, but that's what happens when evil people try and bring down a good group for personal or political reasons - it loses the magic.
Holden Caulfield said it best in 'Catcher in the Rye'..."If you had a million years to do it in, you couldn't rub out even half the 'F--k you' signs in the world. It's impossible."
That's the truth here ... for every good group of people like the CH Lions, there are many more bad people out there with a personal axe to grind that will just make the community a worse place to live for their own political agenda.
Trust me, folks, the CH Lions Club is NOT against women, but are against distructive people - no matter the gender.

I'm sure if the Club was going to find someone that would volunteer
to jump out of a cake, it would be a woman ! Of coarse that's not what we are talking about is it. The club is anti-woman
when it comes to membership.

Tell us how many woman are members! NONE! The meetings are boys night out. That's the way it has always been. Fine, we will go else where. But don't try to twist our words.

Twist words??.... You said antiwomen ... Those ARE your words... I you want to say the Club has no female members, say that - DO NOT say "antiwomen" -the two have different meanings!! As far as I know over the last 8 years at least, every applicant that has been sponsored has been discussed and voted on as a potential Lion, by their character, ability to get along and work with members of the Club, bring a positive face to the Club and be someone the Club would be proud to have as a member - not by gender.
Since you know so much of the Club "So Kind" I would love you to let Topix know a list of every woman that has been sponsored, applied and has been turned down ...

The C/H Lions Club has no female members because it is Anti-woman when it comes to it's membership.

Not sure why you can't understand that, maybe you just don't like the way that sounds.

U R So Kind to bring up a woman was allowed to be the Lion mascot! Have you heard, woman can even vote now a days.

If I was you, I'd take a look at our C/H Lions Club Application before I start talking about gender.

"From the Crest Hill Lions Club Membership Application"

Become A Member
Thank you for your interest in the Crest Hill Lions Club. The Crest Hill Lions Club is a group that comes together and shares a common interest in community service, supporting the Lions motto "We Serve." Membership in our club is open to men of good character and morale values.

As you can see Mr. Huskie 1 and Romeovill Lions, Tina was correct. The C/H Lions Club is open to MEN of good character and morale values.

We love woman but we are AGAINST woman being club members.

Just a fact!

If you would read the By-Laws of Lions International you would see it ammended to say that all mentions of "men" now refers to men or women. Do your homework!!

Thanks N.Y. But we are all aware of the amendment and have been reading the By-laws for years. The amendment however did not change
mindset of the local order of the C/H Lions Club. The C/H Lions just like it's current advertised Membership Application is 25 years behind time. We like it that way.

Against women being members = Anti-woman !!!
Get used to it !!!

The Glens Falls Lions Club welcomes men and women who want to pitch in by giving of themselves to better the lives of others. That means attending bimonthly luncheon & dinner meetings, serving on committees, and participating as workers in Lions activities, including our golf tournament, food sales at LARAC and the Balloon Festival, and the Duathlon. Every potential member must be sponsored by an active Lion, but that can be arranged.

Thanks NY ... That is the way the club is set in Crest Hill as well .... there has not been a woman who has asked to be sponsored or shown interest....the CH club is about taking on good people. There are men and women in town who would be voted out just like there are men and women who would be voted in ..... there are individuals trying to make the Club look sexist for their own personal and political agendas. They claim that women are not allowed but cannot provide names of these women who allegedly applied and were denied.....it is good that the community understands the hard work the club does and many of them realize that these individuals, no matter gender, would be a negative addition to any club they choose to join.

This is nearly a dead club, more than 1/2 the members aren't active and don't pay there fee's they keep it afloat by the donations when they sell candy and use those funds to pay for members that no- longer pay but remain on the membership roles.

Not to worry they do provide some funds for a few needy people in town, and have the Eater Egg Hunt, and don't forget the Hot Dogs at Halloween, Other than that what do they do?

They love to meet twice a month, each member has two drinks, and slams down the same old food from the same old places.

If they were to dissolve you wouldn't even know it.
I SAY BYE-BYE to them

If the Club or it's donations are not being used properly the entire community would support your opinion. Yes, Bye-Bye to them then.
