Coupeville Lions have been together since 1937. Coupeville Lions Club Chartered on December 8, 1937, sponsored by Mount Vernon Lions Club. Formerly in 19-A & 19-H-2, now in 19-H-7 (Multiple District 19, District 19-H, Zone 19-H-7)  

New members (application) bring strength to the club with fresh ideas and you renew our energy! The opportunities are vast as they are wide in ways to give time and energy. What you reap in return is ten-fold. We have found that doing one project has  somehow made way to sign-up for another! We welcome all that you can offer; be it in  large or small increments of time. We  do believe that Coupeville Lions meets and perhaps sets a "Gold Standard“ with their Mission Statement:

'To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions clubs.'

What do you get from being a Coupeville Lion?
-You receive the satisfaction of doing something for the greater good within your community, the island and beyond
-You have the opportunity to meet and work with other members within your community
-You get to be part of an organization you believe in
-You gain experience in speaking, leadership and motivation
-You belong to a family where there is fun and fellowship
-You understand why you can accomplish more with many, rather than just one “Many hands make quick work.”

From Lions International

The World’s Largest Service Club Organization

Our 46,000 clubs and 1.35 million members make us the world’s largest service club organization. We’re also one of the most effective. Our members do whatever is needed to help their local communities. Everywhere we work, we make friends. With children who need eyeglasses, with seniors who don’t have enough to eat and with people we may never meet.

Lions Clubs International was founded on June 7, 1917 in Chicago, Illinois by Lion Melvin Jones. Since its beginning, Lions Clubs International has maintained a strong mission, expressed in our motto, “We Serve.”

Preservation of sight and hearing are two of the major goals of Lions Clubs International. Membership is open to men and women of legal majority and good reputation in the community, and is by invitation only. Those interested in membership should contact their local Lions Club.

Preservation of sight and hearing are two of the major goals of Lions Clubs International. Membership is open to men and women of legal majority and good reputation in the community, and is by invitation.

The Mission of a Club is to

  • Create and foster a spirit of understanding among the peoples of the world.
  • Promote the principles of good government and good citizenship.
  • Take an active interest in the civic, cultural, social and moral welfare of the community.
  • Unite the members in a bond of friendship, good fellowship and mutual understanding.
  • Provide a forum for the open discussion of all matters of public interest. However, partisan politics and sectarian religion shall not be debated by club members.
  • Encourage service-minded people to serve their community without personal financial reward, and to encourage efficiency and promote high ethical standards in commerce, industry, professions, public works and private endeavors.
