Did you serve in the U.S. Armed Forces?

The Valley Center Lions Club is participating in a new Lions Clubs International program called “Involve a U.S. Veteran”. Through this program, qualifying U.S. Veterans can continue to support their community as a Lion and have their club entrance fees waved.

The Valley Center Lions Clubs returns raised funds to Valley Center residents through student grants, support of community projects, food cards to support needy families during the holidays, vision and hearing testing and equipment for those in need, etc.  Our major fund raising is the ever popular pancake breakfast at Bates Nut Farm which we run on a few weekends, supporting Bates and other local clubs and vendors at craft shows, car club shows, dog shows, etc. We are a multi-generation group filled with like-minded people who feel supporting our community and helping others through community-based events is not only fun, but also rewarding.

Whether you served in the armed forces or just want an opportunity to serve your community, now is the time to join Valley Center’s Lions. Come out to our next event (See event calendar here: Or, come to one of our meetings for dinner and a chance to get to know your Lion neighbors.

Through this program you will be able to join Valley Center Lions for a year at no cost. We will cover any membership fees and dues for your first year. This is a great opportunity to check us out, get to know us, and get to have some fun - all while raising funds to support the Valley Center community.

Contact the Valley Center Lions through Facebook at or email Tim Craig to request membership forms or to join us at a meeting to learn more about our club and to meet the members.
