Lions International Mission & Vision

“To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions clubs. To be the global leader in community and humanitarian service.”

Who We Are

The Snohomish LIONS Club was chartered in the spring of 1929 and is the oldest service organization in Snohomish.

We have 38 members. Our two longest-serving members joined our club in the early 1950’s. Half our members have joined since 2015. We are Educators, Directors, Developers and Realtors, Interior Designers, Financial Advisors, Engineers and Sales Professionals, and a variety of other professions. Half are retired and half not yet or ever. We share values of service, civic pride and intent to effect positive and persistent differences in our community. We serve in many other Snohomish service clubs and organizations. We share a friendship developed through our service.
