Williamsburg Host Lions Club

Est. 1934 & Still Serving!

 

Lionism is all about giving back to the community -- so let us us welcome you to our site and thank you for your interest in Lions!  Our club, established in 1934, has a proud history of community involvement and selfless service in the Williamsburg area. We invite you to learn more about our club by exploring this site and familiarizing yourself with our history.

 

Involvement is out watchword:  as Lions, we are actively involved locally and internationally in supporting our communities and enriching the lives of others. If you are interested in the “Big Picture” and how Lions Clubs assist people globally, please read on! The summaries and links below will acquaint you with the organization at the macro level and illustrate how our local efforts and initiatives contribute to the larger picture.

 

Of course, we are also continually on the lookout for guest speakers who have insights and information to share about the local community. If you are interested in joining us at one of our meetings as a guest speaker, please contact our program committee chairperson, Lion Lisa DeVore, at (757) 239-0258 or via email to lisasdevore@gmail.com to discuss available dates and times.

 

Naturally, if you are interested in speaking with someone about our mission, projects, fundraisers, or visiting (and perhaps joining) the club, we would be delighted to talk with you! Our membership director, Jeff Jacobs, can be reached at (757) 641-8946 or via email to jefforyj@cox.net. While we are first and foremost a service club, as opposed to a social club, we take special pride in the high level of camaraderie and fellowship among our members. We are actively seeking new members and hope that you will take the time to learn more about our club, our service projects, and Lionism.

 

Serving our community – and encouraging other service-minded people to serve their communities – is an essential aspect of our club’s purpose. As Lions, we take an active interest in the civic, cultural, social and moral welfare of our community. Toward that end, our fundraisers and service projects are designed to benefit the community in general and the less fortunate in particular. One hundred percent of the proceeds from our Lions Club activities are used to support such programs; club members pay their own way for expenses such as meals, travel and accommodations to participate in Lions events, and event registration/participation fees.

Lions International -- The Big Picture

 
 
   

 

 

Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world every day because they share a core belief - to serve their community.

 

Lions have a dynamic history. Founded in 1917, we are best known for fighting blindness, but we also volunteer for many different kinds of community projects - including caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled.

 

Lions give sight. By conducting vision screenings, equipping hospitals and clinics, distributing medicine and raising awareness of eye disease, Lions work toward their mission of providing vision for all. We have extended our commitment to sight conservation through countless local efforts and through our international SightFirst Program, which works to eradicate blindness.

 

Lions serve youth. Our community projects often support local children and schools through scholarships, recreation and mentoring. Internationally, we offer many programs, including the Peace Poster Contest, Youth Camps and Exchange and Lions Quest.

 
Our Leo Program provides the youth of the world with an opportunity for personal development through volunteering. There are approximately 144,000 Leos and 5,700 Leo clubs in more than 140 countries worldwide.

 

 

Lions award grants. Since 1968, the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) has awarded more than US$700 million in grants to support Lions humanitarian projects around the world. LCIF was also ranked the number one nongovernmental organization in a 2007 study by The Financial Times.

 

Lions help during disasters. Together, our Foundation and Lions are helping communities following natural disasters by providing for immediate needs such as food, water, clothing and medical supplies – and aiding in long-term reconstruction.

 

Lions are active. Our motto is "We Serve." Lions are part of a global service network, doing whatever is necessary to help our local communities.
