Our club is now on Facebook!
The first Lions club was chartered in 1917 because of one man's desire to be a member of an organization that worked for the betterment of his community. Now, Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service organization. The Commonwealth of Virginia proudly joined its ranks in 1921. Currently there are six Districts representing 321 Lions Clubs and close to 10,000 Virginia members. With the simple motto of " We Serve ", the Lions of Virginia work tirelessly to better the Commonwealth. Helping the blind and visually impaired was the first project of Virginia Lions Clubs and continues to perhaps be the largest service project. In addition to sight programs, which includes collection and distribution of used eyeglasses, Lions also work to serve the hearing impaired, promote diabetes awareness, sponsor youth programs and much more.
For more than eighty years, Lions Clubs around the world have been recognized for their service to the visually impaired and hearing impaired. The majority of the world's eye banks have been established by and are currently supported by Lions Clubs, as are hundreds of clinics, hospitals and eye research centers.
Today: Extending our Reach. Lions Club International extends our mission of service everyday in local communities in all the corners of the globe. The needs are great and our services broad, including sight, health, youth, elderly, the environment and disaster relief. Our international network has grown to include more than two hundred countries and geographic areas.
