A Big THANK YOU to our 2017 Underwriters!
Community Beneficiaries
With over 60 members the Priest Lake Kaniksu/Coolin Branch Lions 
work year round to raise funds 
to benefit our international and local community. 
We encourage continuing education 
by granting scholarships to deserving local youth, 
and we strive to see that our local citizens 
get a helping hand-up when needed 
through our Community Needs committee. 
We sponsor and organize the annual Priest Lake Health Fair 
which includes the Sacred Heart Women’s Van, 
the Lions Sight and Hearing Van and the Blood Drive Van.

The following are examples of community activities 
benefitting from Kaniksu Lions fundraising:
• Community Outreach in Partnership with PLCCO
• Priest Lake Fishing Derby for Kids
• Priest Lake Ambulance and EMS programs
• Priest Lake Health Fair
• Inland Northwest Blood Drives
• Priest Lake Groomer Committee
• Priest Lake Hospice
• Priest Lake Spring Festival
• Chuck Sterns “Memorial Turkey Shoot”
• White Cane Days Fundraiser
• Priest Lake Nordic Trail System
• Starkey Hearing Foundation
• Priest Lake Food Bank
• Priest Lake Student College Scholarships

• Priest Lake Holiday Food Baskets
• Camp Stix, Diabetic Camp
In addition, local Lions contribute to world-wide Lions projects 
such as Lions Leader Dogs, Canine Companions for Independence, 
Lions Sight and Hearing Foundation, Lions Club International Foundation 
and C.A.R.E.
Through numerous activities, 
including participation in the Priest Lake Spring Festival, 
Summer Fresh Fruit Sales, the Chuck Sterns Memorial Turkey Shoot, 
the Firewood Sale and, of course, the annual Lions Roar Dinner and Auction,
the Kaniksu/Coolin Branch Lions Club is at the forefront of addressing community and international needs.
