Welcome to the Fort Thomas Lions Club website!

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 financially supporting community organizations, cleaning our local environment, and participating in our local drug take back days.

Lions give sight. By conducting vision screenings 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.

To schedule a vision screening for your organization, please contact Fort Thomas Lion Sean Donelan at To arrange for a vision need or to drop off used eye glasses, please contact Fort Thomas Lion Mark Dowling at 513-379-6870.
