As of June 1, 2016, the Cornwall Lions boasts 80 participating members from our local community.  Our members are dedicated to serving the community, whether in our local area or to communities beyond our immediate borders.  We welcome new members who are willing to give selflessly - perhaps you should consider becoming a Lion.

The Lion's fiscal year follows the school calendar:  July-June.  For the 2015-16 fiscal year, the Cornwall Lions raised and distributed nearly $25,000 for Lions-specific causes like Sight & Hearing, Diabetes and its prevention as well as these local projects:

  • Lions College Scholarships for local high school students
  • Christmas gifting for needful families
  • BFF Program - backpacks for food for school children
  • Purchase of vision screening machine for children
  • Donations to two local eye/vision foundsations:  Marchello Miracle Foundation and iFond
  • Support of Blackrock Forest Consortium Summer Science Camp Scholarship
  • Cormwall Historical Society
  • The Food Bank of the Hudson Valley
  • The Highland [Fire]  Engine Company of Cornwall
  • The Storm King [Fire] Engine Company of Cornwall

Since 1932, the Cornwall Lions have provided community leadership in many areas of civic need.  The proceeds of the club's many fundraising projects go to the Cornwall Lions Club Community Service Fund.  Club members then decide at meetings where the money is needed most with a special emphasis toward funding organizations and needy people - particularly those with special needs in sight, hearing and diabetes.

The Cornwall Lions have dinner meetings the first and third Tuesdays of each month at 6:45PM, preceeded by a Board of Directors/Officers meeting at 6:00PM.  The first meeting is held at Canterbury Inn the second is at Annarella's on the Green.
