Welcome to the Eugene Downtown Lions!

Chartered in 1924, the Eugene Downtown (EDT) Lions Club is 63 members strong, making it one of the largest Lions Clubs in Oregon. The EDT Lions meet on the first and third Wednesday at noon at the Eugene Mission to hear the latest reports on Club activities and to learn from an interesting array of speakers or enjoy performances by local musicians.

Many thanks to those that helped make our Auction and Spaghetti Feed a success!  Your generosity is appreciated.

Join us for a delicious spaghetti dinner.  We will have Auctioneer Sid Vorhees calling the dessert auction and a live auction.  Come and join the fun!

Heartfelt  House

Heartfelt House, the patient family guest house on the PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center at Riverbend campus, provides a tranquil, no-cost "home away from home" for out-of-town families while their loved ones are being cared for at Sacred Heart Medical Center at Riverbend or University District.

The Eugene Downtown Lions donated towards the building of the Heartfelt House and continue to support the guests with monthly donations to the pantry, library, or other specific needs.  We provide funds for larger items through the EDLC's Elaine Gear Memorial Fund.  We also have members that volunteer regularly.

We recently held our Breakfast with Santa and Mrs. Claus at the Heartfelt House.  It was a beautifully decorated venue that added a festive touch to the event.  The kitchen was every pancake maker's dream!  Our thanks to Lion Robin Yozzo, the Heartfelt House Director, for making it happen.



Each year we provide three $1000.00 scholarships to Lane Community College students that are enrolled in a health-related program. Lane Community College selects the recipients. One of those scholarships is the EDLC's Faye Bowers Memorial Scholarship.  It was originally funded by Lion Don Bowers in memory of his wife and continues to be funded by the family.
