We are all about Service



We are a Northwoods area Club  of some 22 members dedicated to service for our communities (Phelps / Land O'Lakes)  and the Mission of Lions Clubs International.  We strive to uphold the Lions Code of Ethics and appreciate the support and encouragement of our communities.  We are Rollie Alger, Wally Beversdorf, Larry Bickelhaupt, Keith DeVos, Gerry Gifford, Arnie Gink, George Hockers, Lorin Johnson, Paul Kemppainen, Dennis Konieczka, Chuck Konnow, Dick Martin,  Mike McAdams, Joel McClure, Ed Rahn, Charlie Requa, Jim Schweizer, Peter Shindelholz, Clyde Scott, Scott Stegemann and Bill Wilkinson.

In addition to service and support for our local communities (scholarships, food pantry, library and community events), we strive to support the Lions Wisconsin Eye Bank, the Seeing Eye Dog Training Institute in Michigan and  the Lions Foundation Camp in Rosholt, WI serving blind and seriously disabled children and young adults.  We support national and internation Lions efforts in sight and health; and in times of natural disasters, we also try to support our fellow Lions Clubs to deliver relief for victims in there respective locations.


If you have interest in joining our efforts or ideas on how we may better serve our communities, please contact us.

Lions are all about Service:  Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world every day because they share a core belief – to serve their communities.

Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization. We have 1.35 million members in more than 45,000 clubs in more than 206 countries and geographic areas.

Lions have a dynamic history. Founded in 1917, we are best known for fighting blindness, but we also volunteer for many different kinds of community projects – including caring for the environment, helping to feed the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled.

Lions give sight. By conducting vision screenings, equipping hospitals and clinics, distributing medicine and raising awareness of eye disease, Lions work toward their mission of providing vision for all. We have extended our commitment to sight conservation through countless local efforts and through our international SightFirst Program, which works to eradicate blindness.

Lions serve youth. 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.

Lions award grants. Since 1968, the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) has awarded more than US$700 million in grants to support Lions humanitarian projects around the world. LCIF was also ranked the number one nongovernmental organization in a 2007 study by The Financial Times.

Lions help during disasters. Together, our Foundation and Lions are helping communities following natural disasters by providing for immediate needs such as food, water, clothing and medical supplies – and aiding in long-term reconstruction.

Lions are active. Our motto is "We Serve." Lions are part of a global service network, doing whatever is necessary to help our local communities.
