Meetings
Members

Due to remodeling at American National Bank, the Wylie Evening Lions Club will be meeting at Napoli's in Wylie (at the corner of Brown and Hwy 78) on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month until June. The time will be at 7:30 pm. 

The Wylie Evening Lions Club (WELC) was chartered on October 2nd 2008. When it comes to meeting challenges, our response is simple: We serve. In over 200 countries, in hospitals and senior centers, in regions battered by natural disaster, in schools and eyeglass recycling centers, Lions are doing community volunteer work, helping, leading, planning and supporting. Because we're local, we can serve the unique needs of the communities we live in. And because we're global, we can address challenges that go beyond borders. 

In addition to local community needs, such as Christian Care Center, Wylie Children's Medical Clinic, My Fostering Hope and the Wylie Championship Rodeo, the WELC supplies many needed children with school supplies each year. The WELC is a strong supporter of The Wylie Chamber of Commerce.

Your Lions Club has many Lions club charities that they support such as:

  • Texas Lions Camp - is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing, without charge, a summer camp for physically disabled, hearing/vision impaired and diabetic children from the State of Texas regardless of race, religion or national origin.

  • Lions Sight and Tissue Foundation - provides the “Gift of Sight” for thousands of children and adults in North Texas; and promotes vision worldwide.
