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.

September 2018 - We have been busy working at and supporting the following events.




The Vernon Lions Club raises funds for many worthwhile charities in our community.  Here are some of the recipients.


Introducing the 2018-19 Vernon Lions Club Executive



Second Annual Golf Tournament


The Vernon Lions Club hosted a fundraising tournament on Saturday, May 26, 2018 with funds going to camperships at Camp Winfield, BC.  The event was a fun 18 hole tournament at the Vernon Golf and Country Club.  It was a huge success with 17  4-somes enjoying this fun tournament.   The tournament was followed by a dinner at the Golf and Country Club, a live auction and a silent auction plus golfing prizes as well.  A big thank you to the businesses and citizens of Vernon, Armstrong, Lumby, Winfield, Kelowna, Kamloops and surrounding areas for their sponsorship and participation in this fun event.  Another big thank you to the team of councillors from Camp Winfield who presented a heart warming slideshow of the children at camp with their big smiles.
