Ashland, Oregon, Lions Club

The Ashland Lions have been serving the Rogue Valley since 1938. In addition to supporting the Lions Clubs International mission of providing sight and hearing assistance to those in need, we have also been very active in completing needed community projects in Ashland and around the Rogue Valley.

Lions Clubs strive to be the global leader in community and humanitarian service. They empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding. Our 1.35 million members —who perform community service in 207 countries and geographic areas— are different in many ways, but we share a core belief: community is what we make it.

When you join the Lions, you join a global service network. At the same time you’re doing local community service, you can also contribute to Lions volunteer efforts around the world.
