Bringing The Waynesville Community Together
The Waynesville Lions Club Charter was signed by 33 men on December 15th, 1958, disbanding the previous Waynesville Civic Club and starting a Lions Club. At that time they decided to raise money by selling light bulbs, brooms, and fruitcakes.
Today, some 50 plus years later, The Waynesville Lions Club continues in it's dedicated service to the Waynesville community. Be sure to check out our fundraiser and projects links to the left to see what we're up to.
We meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month at 6:30 P.M. at the Wayne Township Administration Building.
After dinner and a short business meeting we frequently have guest speakers addressing topics of interest to our community..

We couldn't have asked for a better weekend for the
2015 Waynesville Citizens of the Year
Pat and Cheryl Davidson
To say that this couple is hardworking and generous is an understatement! Anyone who has met these two know that they are the type of people who would give you the shirt off their back AND then take you to the store and buy you a new one. They have been fortunate to help countless citizens in our community throughout their many years of public service and have been blessed with the friendships and love of so many. These individuals are the owners and operators of Waynesville's oldest family business. Their business was opened in 1958 by his parents, Murray and Billie. They have donated food for Waynesville High School's annual Jazz Dinner and Corwin's Annual tractor show. And yes, the business name is Davidson Meat Processing.
In addition to their family business, Pat and Cheryl have also volunteered on Wayne Township's Fire Department. Pat served as a firefighter for 22 years and Cheryl served as an EMT for 31 years, each earning a "Member of the Year" award during their time of service.Pat has served as a Wayne Township trustee for the past 20 years and has also served as President of the Miami Cemetery board. He is a member of the Sons of the American Legion and is a Mason. Cheryl has served as the Mayor of Corwin for the past 10 years. Pat and Cheryl are both Waynesville alumni and proud of it. Lions club is very appreciate for ALL that they do for our organization, as well. In fact, Pat's father Murray was a charter member of Lions Club. It is with great honor that we present the 2015 Waynesville Citizen of the Year award to Pat and Cheryl Davidson.
