Our club is located in Rutherfordton, NC, which is in the foothills of Western North Carolina.  We serve the Spindale and Rutherfordton area.  Our club was formed on October 14, 1954 with 25 charter members.  We currently have 17 members.

We are part of the Western District of NC: District 31L. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not meeting at our usual times and place. Please contact the Club Secretary for more information. Usually our meetings include a meal, a business meeting, and usually a guest speaker from a local business, charity, educational organization, or government agency. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are currently having business meetings only.

Membership is open to anyone who is at least 18 years old, of good moral character, and committed to the work, ideals, and Code of Ethics of the Lions.  Each member must be sponsored by an active member and approved by the Board of Directors.  Following the application and approval process, a candidate is asked to join the organization.

The dues for a regular member in the Rutherfordton Lions Club are $70 per quarter, which covers the cost of administrative expenses such as the cost of meals at the meetings, and the district, state, and international dues.  There is a small additional fee for the Club Christmas Party for members and their guests who attend.

Please contact our Membership Chairman if you are interested in joining our club. For eye exams and eyeglasses, contact the specialist in that area, Dr. Mike Scruggs. Contact the secretary for all other matters.  You can find contact information for these three officials and more at our "Contact Us" page.
