River Hills / Lake Wylie Lions Club was established in 1975 to fulfill the “We Serve” motto of Lions International. For almost 40 years, our members have met that challenge through the joy of fulfillment in our “pay it forward” efforts. Today, about 150 members have fun while serving several of the River Hills / Lake Wylie Lions charities. Our membership is exceptional in that over 90% of us actively participate in the fundraising and volunteer services our Club provides every year.

We provide financial and volunteer support to the charities and institutions listed below. We also volunteer in many other ways in our local community. Each Fall we staff the South Carolina Lions Health Screening Unit doing vision and hearing acuity testing for local students. Our educational outreach efforts include Elementary and Secondary School Mentoring and Tutorial Services. In addition we support the Roaring Readers free book program at Kinard and Bethany Elementary Schools, the annual Lions International Peace Poster Contest (and giving an award and recognition), the South Carolina Summer Youth Exchange, our annual scholarship to a Clover High School senior. We also sponsor the Leo Club (Junior Lions Club) of twelve to eighteen year old area students.

If you would like to be part of this marvelous group, please become a member.
