The Churchville Lions Club is part of Lions Clubs International. Since 1917, Lions Clubs have offered volunteers the opportunity to join a locally based but internationally networked service organization and give something back to their communities. From involving members in projects as local as cleaning up an area park or as far-reaching as bringing sight to the world’s blind, Lions Clubs have always embraced those committed to building a brighter future for their community and the world. The men and women that join Lions Clubs enjoy fellowship and develop their individual capabilities, dedicating time to helping those in need and making their communities better places in which to live.
In addition to the service we provide to the Churchville/Riga community, many members of the Churchville Lions Club serve Lions Clubs International at the regional, state and international level – and many of our members have been formally recognized by their peers for their outstanding service.
The programs of Lions Clubs International, and the projects of the Churchville Lions Club, are continually changing to meet new needs and greater demands, but our mission has never wavered: “We Serve.”
