Welcome to the Santa Rosa Host Lions Club Website
We are a group of men and women of all ages, from various businesses and professions, who share a love of serving our Community together. Our activities have been supporting services to the blind, the elderly, and many youth activities here in Santa Rosa for over 90 years. Our motto - and Lions Clubs International's - is "We Serve". You are invited to be our guest when we meet at noon on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month, at the Cattlemen's Restaurant in Montgomery Village. Our meetings feature interesting guest speakers, a minor amount of Club business, and a significant amount of fun. If you'd like to join us, click on the "Contact Us" button in the upper left of this page for contact information, then give us a call or drop us an email. We'd be happy to pick you up, and deliver you back, so you don't have to worry about finding our meeting location. We'll even buy you an adult beverage, if you're so inclined. One of the best things about our Lions Club is that we have a lot of fun, whatever we do. It's so rewarding to go out and have a great time with your friends, and work to make the Community a better place, almost as a by-product. We work for so many interesting and worthy organizations, it's easy to find one to resonate with your heart. Check out the "Club Projects" button above for a complete list. We want you to feel really good about joining us, and contributing in areas that can be special to you. It only takes a small amount of your time to make a big difference in the Community. So contact us today, and learn more about how you can be a part of a wonderfully fulfilling mission.
The World Health Organization estimates that the eyesight of one-fourth of the world's population can be improved through the use of corrective lenses.
Unfortunately for many, a pair of glasses is both unaffordable and inaccessible. In developing countries, an eye exam costs as much as one month's wages, and a single doctor may serve a community of thousands of people.
For nearly 70 years, individual Lions clubs and districts in the U.S., Canada and several other countries have collected used eyeglasses for distribution to the needy in developing nations.
The general public is encouraged to donate their used eyeglasses to their local Lions club, or CLICK HERE> for a Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center near you. For any other information regarding recycling used eyeglasses, contact Lion Mike Rogalski at 707 575-5090.
