The Lions Club was the first civic club in Boone.

Our primary service is to the blind and the hard of hearing, At the local level, we provide glasses, eye exams and hearing aids for people and we offer a scholarship through Caldwell Community College for a child whose parents are blind, deaf or have had an organ transplant. We collect eye wills and work with the N.C. Eye and Human Tissues Bank in Winston-Salem,
