Welcome to the Lake Gaston Lions Club
The Lake Gaston Lions Club is guided by the same motto as Lions around the world: "We Serve". We Serve is a sacred pledge by all Lions Clubs as they endeavor to assist the visually impaired and meet a variety of other humanitarian needs. While the club is focused on and best known for its sight conservation and assistance to the blind, we also provide help to the hearing impaired; local drug addiction programs; county social and health services; and other non-profit organizations. The Lake Gaston Lions Club even supports local volunteer rescue squads and fire departments.
Lake Gaston Lions Club holds several annual fund raising events, including the Seafood Festival and a Fish Fry. These and other fund raising activities primarily benefit people in the community in which we live and serve.
Thirty members of the Lake Gaston Lions Club held their first meeting on November 24, 1982. On October 29, 2010 the club, that had been meeting in a fire station in Virginia, moved to its newly acquired Lions Den at 139 Stanley Road in Henrico, NC.
The Lions Den is also available for rent to the public. It can be used for meetings, conferences, and celebrations. The gated outdoor facilities, which include electricity, water, and propane gas connections, are also available for rent. These facilities are suitable for large as well as smaller gatherings.
Please consider becoming a Lion and joining the Lake Gaston Lions Club by contacting any current member or Ron Birgensmith, Membership Chairman, at 252-586-6164.
