Crystal City Lions Club was chartered April 1959, established as a service club for the community. Our 50th Anniversary will be April 25, 2009, and we are planning a celebration in our Community Hall.

Lions Clubs International is the largest Service Organization in the World. There is a Membership "Family Plan" for members of the same family, living in the same household. We are always pleased to have new members join our club, and we welcome them with open arms.

Lions BBQ
Crystal City Lions club is very active in the community. Examples of our fundraising projects include: breakfast brunches, steak suppers, Meals on Wheels for the seniors, 100 club draw, only to name a few.

Funds raised by these projects are donated to local sports groups, youth in our communities, people in need, or are used to operate and maintain our local community hall. We also support Lions International Projects, such as Diabetes, Eye Programs, Youth Programs, and Hearing Programs.

We have a Graduation Scholarship of $500.00 named after Lion T.W. Rothwell, awarded yearly to a Grade 12 student who meets the criteria.

We have a Memorial Fund named in memory of one of our Lions who passed away which is used to assist people in our community to meet financial needs for medical expenses.

Our Mission Statement is: "To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions clubs". Our Moto is: "WE SERVE".

Currently the club has 23 Active Members, 2 Associate Members, and 1 Life Member, who is also a Charter Member. The Executive consists of the President, Secretary, Treasurer, Tail Twister, and 2 Directors. We meet in the Community Hall the third Thursday of every month (except for July and August) at 6:30 pm for supper, followed by a meeting at 7:30.
