Welcome to the Vienna West Virginia Lions Club website.  We are one of the most dynamic, service-oriented, and fastest growing clubs in West Virginia - and we're just getting (re)-started.  24 experienced, energetic women and men meet twice a month to discuss service and growth strategies, and listen to great speakers (the third Tuesday of each month).

Each meeting starts with a rousing "Lions roar", pledge to the US flag, and an invocation, followed by a delicious meal prepared by local retailers. The business meeting (first Tuesday of each month) usually covers some tough questions, like "Are we going to raffle another butchered pet pig this year, and more importantly, where can we contribute the funds to create the most benefit to Vienna residents?”

And don't forget the 6 broom sales we conduct each year, and the 3-week Christmas tree sales event.  We even have periodic auctions of useful items such as an elaborate bird house (big enough for an eagle), or a beautiful arrangement of silk flowers, etc. One of our most talented members wrote a book emphasizing unexplained personal mysteries, and a local history of Vienna.  We would really like to "serve" YOU or your charitable organization.  Won't you help us with these fund raisers?

We also help the community with reading programs at the Vienna Library, cleaning local cemeteries, helping with the Vienna Christmas tree lighting ceremony, etc.  One of the most exciting programs has been funding a recorded book reading program for military members serving overseas, which can then be played to their children at home - a really "heart-warming" effort.  If it takes willing hands to assist with local projects, the Vienna Lions Club will try to help.  We have updated our Community Assessment which is generating a lot more activities where we can help - but we will need more, excited members to complete them.

One our most notable achievements this past year has been the addition of 5 women members, each one a tremendous asset to our service efforts; these women provide a tremendous input to future plans and activities - like, how many Lions clubs have an "Activist Chairwoman"?

Because the Lions Club International focuses on many sight-related activities, we recently collected more than 700 pairs of used glasses for recycling overseas.  We have expanded this effort to include collection boxes in most local supermarkets and optometry offices.

Did we say “We're just getting started?”  This level of activity demands more than the traditional "greet and eat" meetings - it takes a real "let's do it" attitude.  Won't you help us build on this "attitude"?



Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with more than 1.4 million members in approximately 46,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world.
