Many different people are members, we have Doctors, tradesmen, farmers, teachers, retirees and businessmen.

Where and when do you meet?

What do the Walcott Lions do?

The Walcott Lions do many things, but there are two major areas local and non-local.

Local meaning the Walcott area, we raise funds to spend. In the past the Walcott Lions have spent time and money on: building parks, vision and hearing screenings, blood drives, handicap ramps and this is only  a small list.


What is the SightFirst program?

The mission of the SightFirst program is to build comprehensive eye care systems to fight the major causes of blindness and provide care for the blind or visually impaired. SightFirst grants are considered for projects that (1) result in a significant and measurable reduction in blindness in a specified region, (2) target the leading blinding diseases and/or address crucial unmet eye care delivery needs at regional and national levels and (3) use cost-effective and sustainable strategies.


How does the SightFirst program battle global blindness?

Typical SightFirst projects focus on strengthening of eye care infrastructures and eye delivery systems, training of eye care workers and related human resource personnel, intervening against the major blinding diseases through large-scale treatment initiatives, and providing rehabilitation and education in underserved communities.



Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization.

We have 1.35 million members in more than 45,000 clubs worldwide.

Lions are everywhere.

We're active men and women in more than 206 countries and geographic areas.

Lions have a dynamic history.

Founded in 1917, we are best known for fighting blindness – it's part of our history as well as our work today. But we also volunteer for many different kinds of community projects – including caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled.

Lions give sight.

By conducting vision screenings, equipping hospitals and clinics, distributing medicine and raising awareness of eye disease, Lions work toward their mission of providing vision for all. We have extended our commitment to sight conservation through countless local efforts and through our international SightFirst Program, which works to eradicate blindness.

Lions serve youth.

Our community projects often support local children and schools through scholarships, recreation and mentoring. Internationally, we offer many programs, including the Peace Poster Contest, Youth Camps and Exchange and Lions Quest.

Leo Program provides the youth of the world with an opportunity for personal development through volunteering. There are approximately 144,000 Leos and 5,700 Leo clubs in more than 140 countries worldwide.

Lions award grants.

Since 1968, the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) has awarded more than US$700 million in grants to support Lions humanitarian projects around the world. LCIF was also ranked the number one nongovernmental organization in a 2007 study by The Financial Times.

Together, our Foundation and Lions are helping communities following natural disasters by providing for immediate needs such as food, water, clothing and medical supplies – and aiding in long-term reconstruction.

Lions are active.

Our motto is "We Serve." Lions are part of a global service network, doing whatever is necessary to help our local communities.
