The purpose of Lions Clubs is to improve their communities by helping others. Most money raised by local clubs stays right where it's earned, in the local community. A small percentage is forwarded to Lions Club International Foundation (LCIF) and is used for disaster relief whenever and wherever needed. LCIF was one of the first to lend a hand during the flood of 2004 providing money for immediate needs in the communities affected by the high water. Some goes to diabetes research, some to Pilot Dogs. Since Helen Keller challenged the Lions Clubs to be knights of the blind during our international convention at Cedar Point in 1925 we've supported efforts to help those affected by diminished vision.

The members of the Marietta Noon Lions club serve our community all year long. Our service projects include socks and underwear drives, Adopt-a-Highway roadside cleanup, making blankets for children and adults undergoing cancer treatment, delivering Christmas cards and treats to nursing home residents, plastic recycling, and coordinating Marietta's annual Halloween parade and Father's Day classic car show. 

All of this is accomplished through vigorous fundraising which includes an annual rose sale, golf outing, pediatric cancer bar crawl, and our flagship project, Bridge of Heroes, which honors area veterans with a beautiful display of American flags across the Putnam Street bridge during the weeks of Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Veteran's Day. 

Our club is busy, and we have a great time! We would love to welcome new members to join the fun!
