Oregon Lions Club
Community Organizations Non Profit, Community, & Civic Organizations
Our community projects often support local children and schools through scholarships, recreation and mentoring. Internationally, we offer many programs, including the Peace Poster Contest, Youth Camps and Exchange and Lions Quest.
You're invited to become an Oregon Lion!
We Serve: The Lions motto is as simple and profound as that! Oregon Lions is a great group of people who have fun doing helpful things for our community.
We Meet: On the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month there are club meetings with a speaker or a program. Come to one, come to all. Either way, meetings are short and if you choose to eat dinner, it's about $11.
We Give: You can be as involved as you want to be in giving your time to worthy causes. Dues are only $70 per year. Dues for a couple are $118.50 and most of that is put right back into our community.
We Invite: Becoming a Lion is easy! Show up to a Thursday meeting at the Oregon VFW at 6:15pm.
We Connect: Contact any of the following people who would be happy to shepherd you through becoming a Lion.

Lions serve their communities
Although Lions is an international organization, a large portion of the work we do is for the people and the organizations in our own community. Oregon Lions has helped with the following:
- Center for Sight and Hearing (Rockford)
- College Scholarships for OHS Graduates
- Eyeglasses for the Community
- Free Hearing and Eye Screening
- KB Tough Run
- Leader Dog Training
- Lifeline Food Pantry
- Lions International
- Lions of Illinois Foundation
- Oregon Park District
- Oregon VFW
- Roadside Clean-up
- Rock River Center
- Serenity Hospice
- Village of Progress
Our fundraisers are what make assisting all those organizations possible and our fundraisers do not takme up too much time. All of the proceeds are donated to Lions charitable causes. You'll have fun helping with any of the following activities:
- Annual Drawdown
- Autumn On Parade Pork Chop Booth
- Father's Day Car Show
- Meat Raffle
