Our Mission


When caring people join together, roll up their sleeves and take action to make their community better, it’s a beautiful thing—and an incredible feeling for everyone involved. That’s Lions. Being a Lion is about leading by example, building relationships and improving the world through kindness. It’s 1.4 million caring men and women serving together to make a lasting impact and change lives.

Our members come from all walks of life. We range in age from 25 to 87. We are business owners, teachers, tradesman, IT professionals, retirees and even a farmer. We are caring community members who are ready to roll up our sleeves to serve our historic rivertown and the awesome people who call Columbia home.


The Columbia Lions Club is a service organization made up of members whose goals are centered on assisting the youth and adults of our community, especially the hearing and visually impaired and providing assistance for other humanitarian needs. We encourage service-minded people to serve their community by taking an active interest in the civic, cultural, social and moral welfare of the community. It is our desire to grow personally and professionally during our service.
