– PROGRAM OVERVIEW –

Who are The Dalles Lions?
With over 90 years of service to our community, we are a diverse group of men and women from all walks of life working together for the betterment of our community. Each year, The Dalles Lions Club sponsors activities and fundraisers to support the needs of our community; both people and our city. Members of our club volunteer countless hours to provide eye glasses, hearing aids, cataract surgeries, diabetes awareness, support for the children’s wing of the library, parks & recreation projects, community meals, and Quinton Street ball park. We are proud to be Lions!

What we do
The focus of The Dalles Lion Club is related to sight conservation, hearing and speech conservation, diabetes awareness, youth outreach, international relations, and other programs that support the local communities where Lions live. Lions are also passionate about developing effective leadership skills in their members.

Where we go?
The Dalles Lion’s Club visits schools, retirement centers, hospitals, civic auditoriums, homes, and other service clubs. In other words, any place there is a need.

When do we meet?
We gather once a week for meetings at noon. Spooky’s Pizza and Restaurant has been a gracious host for many years and continue to provide a warm friendly place to meet. Our greeter will arrive a bit early and ensure that every member is properly greeted. Generally, our weekly agenda will include an invocation, the Pledge of Allegience, and a rousing song. We then conduct a business meeting with a formal program starting at 12:30 pm. Our meetings end by 1:00 pm to allow those working folks the opportunity of returning to their individual work site.
Most importantly…we have fun.
