BE A LION
Where There's a NEED, There's a LION
Lions are leaders. leaders in service, leaders in kindness, and leaders in our community. Where there is a need, there is a Lion willing to step up and take on the job. Our community members look to us for strength when times are tough.
Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better. That's because we help where help is needed – in our own communities and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy.
Our Lions Club collects soda pop tabs for camperships at Camp Winfield. If you have any tabs you can donate them to a Lion member or you can drop them off at Rona. Thank you to Rona for helping us make a difference.

October Vernon Lions Club fundraiser
Add a tender touch to Thanksgiving with carnations. Bursting with holiday brilliance, carnations overflow with the spirit of Thanksgiving. While it is unknown where the carnation originates from, with many speculating the Mediterranean and Eurasia, this flower also known as “The Flower of God” is often symbolic of love and has special meaning for the holidays. Coming in a wide variety of colors to include yellow, purple, pink, green, white, dark red, and striped, the carnation is the perfect way to celebrate and dine with family during Thanksgiving.
