The West Linn Lions Club raises funds through their Lion Burger sales, Bowl-a-thon, Kraut and Sausage Feed and Wine Raffle. Here are some of the projects we spend it on:
Helping Those Who Need It The Most
Each December the Lions, with the assistance of the Elementary and Middle school staff, collect over 150 children who are in need of shoes. These children are transported by bus from their school to a local shoe store to pick out their very own pair of shoes. Afterward the bus takes them to a pizza parlor for lunch and then back to school.
The Lions lend a helping hand to the West Linn Parks Department by building and performing repair on park structures
We provide the US Flags that go up on Hood Street every holiday. They are installed by the Boy Scout Troup #149
Safe Boating for Kids
Each year the Lions Club organizes a day on the water to teach children how to be safe in boats and around the water. We get help from the Coast Guard, County Sherrif, Tualatin Fire and Rescue and many more. This day a free event.
Easter Egg Hunt
This free event is held at the West Linn High School Football field on the Saturday before Easter. It is open to all children from toddlers through 5th graders.
