During the early period, the Belpre Lions met in different area churches with the first meeting being held in the Belpre Congregational Church. The Marietta Noon Lions was our sponsoring club and our charter night, with 63 charter members, was held at the Belpre High School auditorium on March 25, 1953. Approximately 170 guests attended the event and entertainment was provided by the Lions Club Quartet of Parkersburg, WV.
The Lions is the largest service club organization in th world. It is noted for its work in sight saving. The Belpre Lions is no exception. Financail assistance continues to be provided to local citizens to help pay for eye exams and eye glasses.
