Meetings

Our club serves the greater Woodland Park, Colorado area.

We meet for our Membership Meetings on the 4th Thursday of the month at the Colorado Lions Club on Highway 67 just north of town starting at 7pm. Come join us and learn about the many ways we help the local community.

We meet for our Board Meetings on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 7pm at the Woodland Country Lodge on Highway 24 near City Market.

 

So far this Lion's year we have:

- Provided an eye check and glasses for a person in Woodland Park

- Partnered with the Aspen Mine Center to assist a family with a handicap ramp for their house
 

We will be the beneficiary of the 2017 Lighter Side of Christmas Parade!

The 29th annual parade will be held this year on Saturday, December 2nd at 6pm in downtown Woodland Park.

The parade theme this year celebrates the 100th year anniversary of the founding of Lions Club International and the 50th Anniversary of the Disney movie “The Jungle Book” with the theme “Jingle in the Jungle.”

In 1925, Helen Keller asked the Lions to become the “knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness.” In 1917,  Lions Club International was founded by Melvin Jones and is now the world’s largest service organization.  There are currently more than 46,000 clubs worldwide, 1.4 million members in 200 countries and geographic areas

The Lions Club Mission Statement is “To empower our volunteers to serve their community, meeting local humanitarian needs, encouraging community service and involvement.”

The Woodland Park Pikes Peak Lions Club supports and partners with the Colorado Lions Camp. A large portion of funds raised from the parade will go to the Colorado Lions Camp, a local camp for special needs persons from age 8 to 82 from across Colorado. All funds raised in the community stay in the community

The Lions Club also provides eyeglasses and eye checks for individuals who can’t afford them. Plans are underway for a used glasses drop off at the parade this year.
