Welcome to the virtual lair of the Salmon Creek Lions Club of Vancouver, Washington! We’re glad you want to learn more about who we are and what we are about. Take your time to scroll through the major sections of this site. If you want more information than is provided here, don’t hesitate to contact us; we welcome your queries!

Curious about Lions Clubs? Lions Clubs International (LCI), founded in 1917, is the world’s largest and most active service community. More than 1,400,000 Lions and 50,000 Lions Clubs exist in over 200 countries and geographic areas worldwide. More information is available at .

The Lions’ motto is WE SERVE. Yes, Lions serve. It’s that simple and has been since we began over a century ago. Lions clubs are where individuals join to give their valuable time and effort to improve their communities—and meet needs worldwide. LCI’s mission statement is To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace, and promote international understanding through Lions clubs.

Through LCI’s Foundation (LCIF)  We respond to humanitarian challenges globally with emphasis on the following areas of need:

  • Disaster Relief
  • Vision/Hearing
  • Youth
  • Diabetes
  • Childhood Cancer
  • Hunger
  • Environment

And, to date, LCIF has awarded more than $1 billion in grants to deserving causes!

Salmon Creek Lions Club Mission

Meanwhile, in Clark County, there are 9 Lions Clubs, including the Salmon Creek Lions (and its Foundation). We serve primarily the northern portion of the Vancouver metropolitan area—where Salmon Creek lies. While each Club has its own set of events and activities, there is a growing movement of collaboration between the clubs as we work together toward common goals benefiting Southwest Washington.

If any of the above information stirs your interest, you owe it to yourself to learn more about the world of Lionism by reading further on this site and then contacting us. By the way, we’re not just about humanitarian service; we also enjoy getting together with fellow Lions at our many gatherings locally, statewide, nationally, and globally. We like to have fun while we strive to meet today’s challenges! So, check us out; better yet, join us in one of our local activities, such as staffing a primary collection site for the annual countywide Walk & Knock Food Drive, hosting a paper-shredding/food collection project to benefit a local cause or keeping clean the scenic Salmon Creek Greenway Trail. To find out what’s happening in the coming weeks, go to the CALENDAR section of this website. You can even sign up there to participate in an event of your choice—or you can find out who to call for more information. Lastly, donations to our work are always welcomed and put to good use in our community and beyond as we live out our motto to SERVE. Please see the footnote below.
