72 Years Young and Growing!

The Vernon Lions Club was granted its charter on November 6th, 1945 with 23 founding members. Our first President was William A. MacKenzie, and his daughters Marnie and Bobbe MacKenzie were guests at our 65th Anniversary celebration in October of 2010.

Lumby, Enderby, Revelstoke and Coldstream Lions Clubs were originally sponsored by the Vernon Lions Club. Our longest serving member, Joseph Peters, with 65 years of perfect attendance, passed away in 2010 at 96 years of age. Our current roster includes members in a wide age range with varied interests and backgrounds.

Thousands of dollars raised by Vernon Lions Club members have gone back annually into Vernon area initiatives in the Club's lifespan thus far.

This rich history of hands-on helping in the community and contribution to worthy local and international causes is something we'd very much like to carry forward into the future. In order to do so, we always welcome new members to take up the tasks and enjoyment of serving. Why not consider helping out with one of our functions or, better yet, become a member of our Lion Family! Please contact us for more.
