Welcome to the virtual den 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 pages. If you want more information than what is provided here, don’t hesitate to contact us; we welcome your queries!
Special News: As of mid-May 2020, we are experiencing the ramifications of the COVID-19 pandemic, namely, no face-to-face meetings (we now meet online), all of our service projects and fundraisers (see the calendar of Typical Activities in the History section) have been cancelled for the time being; and we are waiting to see how the situation plays out before returning to active status. So, keep checking this page for the latest news as it affects the operations of this Lions Club.
Curious about Lions Clubs? Lions Clubs International (LCI), founded in 1917, is the world’s largest and most active community in the world. There are now more than 1,400,000 Lions and 46,000 Lions Clubs in 210 countries and geographic areas worldwide.
Through LCI’s Foundation (LCIF), we respond globally to the following humanitarian challenges locally, nationally and globally:
- Disaster Relief
- Childhood Cancer
Here, in Clark County, there are 11 Lions Clubs, including the Salmon Creek Lions. While each Club has it own set of events and activities, there is a growing movement of collaboration between the clubs as we work together toward common goals.
If any of the above challenges stir 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. Oh, by the way, we’re not just about humanitarian service; we also enjoy getting together with fellow Lions at our many gatherings locally, statewide, regionally and even globally. We love 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 vision screening, working the annual Walk & Knock Food Drive or feeding volunteers at the PUD’s annual Earth Day event.
Note: As of May 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all of our service and fundraising activities are cancelled or postponed until restrictions are lifted. We regularly meet online, however, with a fourth-Thursday members’ gathering which is open to all interested persons—just contact Lion David Page at firstname.lastname@example.org for an email invitation with the necessary meeting information.
