The Fort Jones Lions were chartered in May of 2001. We serve the communities of Fort Jones and Scott Valley through a variety of projects. One annual project is the adminstration and funding of the Fort Jones Christmas Parade, which is a major event in the community. Pictured below is the 2012 Fort Jones Lions float.
