The Walcott Lions Club was founded February 9th 1973, by a group of local leaders who wanted to help the Walcott community grow. The Walcott Lions Club is 1 of 46,000 clubs worldwide, with a membership of over 1.4 million. The Lions motto is “We Serve.” The focus of Lions Club to reduce the prevalence of diabetes, we screen for vision impairments in children, advocate for the vision impaired, and provide support for children battling cancer.

We generate money for donations and projects through fundraising at our annual fish fry in March and pancake breakfasts in the spring and fall. We also help at the park shacks during the summer. We hold several blood drives throughout the year to help support Impact Life, as well as several food drives to support the Buffalo Food Pantry.

Our main service project is Iowa KidSight, where club members will go to preschools and day cares in our area and screen local children for eye disorders for free. We take a high-resolution picture of the children’s eye and send it up to the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s hospital where it is checked by a professional. If the child needs glasses, and the family is not able to afford them the Lions Club will help pay for them.

We regularly donate funds to Walcott Fire, Walcott Day, Durant Ambulance, Walcott Library, and Walcott Historical Society. The Walcott Lions Club donates more than $10,000 a year; with a total of more than $500,000 funds donated since the start of the club.

Our officers are elected in the spring and serve a 1-year term from July 1st to June 30th. Officers include: President, Vice Presidents, Secretary and Treasurer. Their duties are to run the club projects and keep the club’s finances in order.
