Since our inception we have striven to help the Clifton community and serve the Clifton/Centreville community at-large. Our Clifton Community functions and events take place in and around the Clifton Firehouse Community Hall on Chapel Road in the Town of Clifton, but as a club we meet at the Fairfax Station Railroad Museum (http://www.fairfax-station.org) , the second and fourth Thursday evening from 7-9 PM, because it adds character to the Railroad theme of the Clifton Lions Club. The Town of Clifton was founded and established originally as a railroad town. We are a club, a member of the Lions Clubs International, and as such it is our desire to serve and help those in need from the Clifton/Centreville community.
