Since chartering in 1965, the members of the Stillwater Noon Lions have provided countless hours of service to the Stillwater area.  Through the years we have participated in and funded a number of projects. 

Currently, we serve Stillwater in a number of ways,  free eyeglasses and exams for Stillwater residents in need, accepting used eyeglasses, Our Daily Bread Food Resource Center, free health screenings, academic scholarships (Lincoln Academy, Meridian Technology, Optometry School at Northeastern State University and Southwestern Oklahoma State University), free Lions Kidsight school children vision screening, Pioneer Pantry, Stillwater Pumpkin Patch, Salvation Army, Lions Meadows of Hope Foster Care Community.

The Stillwater Noon Lions Club meets from 11:30am-1:00pm every Thursday at Highland Park United Methodist Church, 524 N. Stallard in Stillwater, OK.
