Columbia Lions Club

Serving Columbia, PA for 80+ years

Working Together For A Better Columbia

Lions serve.

It’s that simple, and it has been since we first began serving Columbia and surrounding communities in 1939.

That first year the Lions raised $120 to buy eyeglasses for 15 children in Columbia schools and we’ve been serving the community ever since.

The Columbia Lions Club is a part of Lions International, the largest service club in the world. Our mission is to empower our members and volunteer partners to improve health and well-being, strengthen our community and support those in need.

“The Lions Club has been serving Columbia for more than 80 years. Our members have always kept the Lions motto “We Serve” foremost on our minds and in our hearts. We enjoy bringing the community together for fun, family friendly events such as our car show, Halloween parade and summer concerts. But the most rewarding part of being a Lion is giving our time, talents and resources to help those in need. Whether it’s delivering hundreds of Christmas food boxes or providing eye exams and glasses for children and adults in need, we are here to serve.”
