Mission Statement:  To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions clubs.



A big Thank You to everyone who braved the snow storm and came to our first Chili Feed fund raiser on Sat. Jan. 3, 2018 at the Moravian Church, to raise money for people needing help with hospital treatments, etc.and Lions members and community members who generously donated the food we prepared.   We made the chili on the mild side so people could add seasoning to suit their taste.  We also served home-made corn meal muffins, home-made chocolate cookies, sherbet, and condiments for the chili.  If you weren't able to be here this year, I hope you can join us next year -- we heard lots of compliments on how good the meal was.  Below are pictured some early arrivals, and the Lions kitchen crew.


At our Feb. 2018 meeting President Ken Lindeman showed the 2016-17 Centennial Club Excellence Award that was presented at the Mid-Winter Convention. 


Also, congratulations to Tom Ties who was presented the Lions Everyday Hero certificate by Pres. Ken Lindeman.








 At our Dec. 2017 meeting, DG Mike Schultz was our speaker and he awarded the 30 year membership pin to Mike Lovlien.  He also awarded checks to the three Peace Poster winners .








We were fortunate to have Ricky Ties as our guest speaker at our Nov. '17 meeting.  He gave an inspirational talk about his life dealing with vision impairment and his quest to represent the USA in the Paralympics in 2020.  He showed us the medals he has already won, and the garment he wears for the competitions.  Thank you, Ricky Ties.







Today (Aug. 15) we have 2 crews working on that sign at Hwy 33 & US 14.  The Jeff Brinkman Painting along with Jessica helping her dad, and the Joe and Jay Brinkman construction.  Thank you for all the volunteer work this day.









Thank you from Altura Lions to all the people who came to the Chicken Q on Sat.  We were blessed with good weather, good people, and good food.  Lions motto is "we serve" and as you can see from these pictures, we enjoy what we do.
