Powhatan Lions Club

The club was founded in 1976 with 25 charter members and is celebrating its 43th anniversary this year.  We currently have one of the largest clubs, in our district, at over 50 memebers, a fact we are very proud of. The focus of the club is to serve the people of Powhatan County and organizations representing the sight and hearing impaired.

 

We are part of the Lions Club International, the largest civic organization in the world.  The Lions motto is We Serve! Fun, fellowship and voluntary service is what this club is about.  We encourage service minded people to serve their community without personal or financial reward.

           

  • The Powhatan Lions Club has donated over $20,800 to local organizations in the last year.
  • Our members have donated over 925 hours to various, local projects in the past year.
  • We recycled over 1,000 pairs of eyeglasses last year as part of a Lions project that refurbishes them to be donated to people who cannot afford to purchase glasses.
  • Hosted the Annual Powhatan Labor day parade closing the official summer season with a bang!
  • The club has certified eye screeners who screened the vision of over 1,400 children in Powhatan’s public Schools and Blessed Sacrament Huguenot this past year. This is a service the club has provided to the schools free of charge for many years. Many vision problems in children, when caught early, can be corrected.

We have two major fund raising events each year.  They are known as the Steer Roast and Golf Tournament held in April and White Cane Day.  The funds raised are donated back locally. The Powhatan Lions Club is a 501c3 non-profit charitable organization.

Here are just some of the organizations and projects the Powhatan Lions have donated to in the past year:

  • Eye exams and glasses for needy individuals in Powhatan
  • Prevent Blindness Virginia-Leader Dog Program
  • Burkeville Lodge for the blind
  • Prevent Blindness Mid-Atlantic
  • Central Virginia Hearing Aid Bank
  • Powhatan High School and Blessed Sacrament Huguenot for scholarships.
  • Powhatan Rescue Squad
  • Powhatan YMCA
  • Virginia Voice
  • Powhatan Volunteer Fire Department
  • Powhatan Christmas Mother
