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".


On June 16 the West Bend Lioness Lions celebrated the Grand Opening of the fishing deck built at Ridge Run Park. The deck was the Legacy Project for our club to celebrate the 100 year birthday of the Lions Clubs International. Using our funds the City of West Bend Parks, Recreation & Forestry Department built the fishing deck.


Each year we have a Butterfly Garden day at the Library. Story time is spent reading books about butterflies to the children. Afterward the children are given a craft project related to butterflies and then are taken outside to the garden to plant flowers that butterflies like. Treats and lemonade conclude the morning. This year we had 55 children attend.

Scholarships Awarded

This year's scholarship winners were: from West High School, Julia McClain (March girl) and East High School, Jordyn Hynst (December girl)
Committee chair, Lioness Lion Angie Thornburg presented the checks.
