We Serve

Lions of Oregon & Northern California are a part of an international network of 1.4 million men and women in 200 countries and geographic areas who work together to answer the needs that challenge communities around the world. Lions are best known for working to end preventable blindness, the giving of eyeglasses and hearing aids for the needy and local service projects.


Mission Statement of Lions Clubs International:


"To create and foster a spirit of understanding among all people for humanitarian needs by providing voluntary services through community involvement and international cooperation."


April Newsletter

    The theme for the MD 36 Convention in May is “Lions Are All In” and I encourage Story Boards from each Lions club.  I have seen some excellent Lions club history, current projects and future project plans from the Story Boards already presented at District Conventions.  

    The MD 36 committee chairs are doing their individual work and will continue to do so.  I am especially pleased with our youth chairs and how they are involving future Lions in their Lions clubs.  The future of Lions is in our youth and our new Lions clubs.  We have four months to reach our individual club goals and I am confident more will be fulfilled.  

   There are challenges that are coming up which need the help and support of all the Lions of MD 36.  A new Executive Secretary, the additional commitments of the USA/Canada Leadership forum and our celebrating LCI’s Centennial celebration along with the continued loss of Lion members in our MD are depending on our Lions being “All In”.

    “Where There’s a Need There’s a Lion”, and when the “Lions Are All In”, we are “Leaders in Outstanding Noteworthy Service”. 

Will you not help me hasten the day when there shall be no preventable blindness; no little deaf, blind child untaught; no blind man or woman unaided? I appeal to you Lions, you who have your sight, your hearing, you who are strong and brave and kind. Will you not constitute yourselves Knights of the Blind in this crusade against darkness?
— Helen Keller's Speech at 1925 International Convention Cedar Point, Ohio, USA June 30, 1925
