According to Club President Angelo A. Lorusso Jr. “over the years the Cornelius/LKN Lions have had a wonderful relationship with the Cornelius Elementary School. Many of our Lions were teachers and department heads within the Charlotte Mecklenburg School System and of course, long time Lion, Gene Davis, is a retired Principal of Cornelius Elementary School”. This Service Project brings The Cornelius/LKN Lions Club closer to current Principal James Garvin’s goal of “building relationships with the various Cornelius based community organizations”.

The Cornelius/Lake Norman Lions Club has 12 members and meets on The First and Third Tuesdays of Every Month at 7:00 PM at The Cookhouse Restaurant on Torrence Chapel Rd.
