LIONS Early Childhood Vision Screening Project (ECVSP)
ECVSP is a vision screening program to identify treatable or preventable causes of blindness in preschool and young children in Eastern Prince William, Stafford, Spotsylvania, King George and Westmoreland Counties. The program also provides for professional eye exams and treatment of vision defects. While the focus is for pediatric care, Lions Clubs' vision screening is available for all residents in our service area.
We meet on the fourth Thursday of each month at the Aquia Harbour Country Club. Meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. and lasts approximately two hours. If you would like to be our guest for dinner, and to learn more about Lionism, please contact us for an invitation. You do not have to live in Aquia Harbour to become a member - many of our members live in the surrounding area.

There are two Lions Clubs in Aquia Harbour: the Aquia Evening Lions, whose membership is entirely female, and the Aquia Host Lions, whose membership is entirely male. The Aquia Evening Lions were originally chartered in 1981 as the Aquia Lioness Club, which was a women's auxiliary to the Aquia Harbour Lions. Once Lions International offered women full membership rights, the Aquia Evening Lions Club was chartered in 1992, and the men's club name was changed to the Aquia Host Lions Club. The two clubs continue to have a close relationship, and work together on several projects and fundraisers throughout the year.
Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with more than 1.3 million members in approximately 45,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world.
