About Us

The West Bend Lioness Lions Club is affiliated with Lions Club International, the largest service organization in the world whose motto is "We Serve".

Lion's International was founded in Chicago, IL in 1917, by businessman Melvin Jones. Since its inception, it has been dedicated to helping those less fortunate in their communities and around the world. In 1925 Helen Keller challenged the members to be "knights of the blind".

A chill is in the air, the library garden is ready to be put to sleep for winter but the fishing deck is finally finished! Lion Diane has been keeping us updated. She will be reporting at the board meeting that the deck, with the plaque, the walkway and the bench will soon reach completion.
It has been asked if we as a club can find a time in the coming weeks to pose for a picture on the deck .Maybe this up- coming weekend the 3rd or 4th Or the 12th?

Fishing Deck

The West Bend Lioness Lions are delighted that our Lion's Legacy Project has been completed. In celebration of Lions International's 100th birthday we worked with the West Bend Park & Rec Dept. to have a fishing deck built at Ridge Run Park. It is wheel chair accessible and a bench is available for caretakers. A grand opening will take place next Spring.
