About the Lions
Since 1971, the La Vernia Lions Club has been a community based service club dedicated to making a difference by enriching the lives we serve and providing assistance through volunteering.
Each year, the Lions Club members undertake fund raising activities to support our many projects. All of the money raised is returned to the community in the form of scholarships for graduating high school seniors, food and monetary donations to the local food pantry, school supplies for needy students, monthly bingo at the local nursing home, vision and eyeglass support for the visually impaired, and sponsorships for area children so that they may attend, without charge, the Texas Lions Camp for children who have physical disabilities, hearing/vision impairments, cancer and Type 1 diabetes from the State of Texas, regardless of race, religion, or national origin.
The primary fund raising event for the La Vernia Lions Club is the annual Bluebonnet Fest held the third weekend in May. The majority of the funds raised are from the auction and raffle held at the Fest. We also hold an annual Golf Tournament in October and periodic Volleyball Tournaments as well as assisting other local organizations with their fund raisers.
You are welcome to join us anytime. You can accomplish much more when working together with others than alone.

Service To Others - Lions clubs are recognized for their service to the blind and visually impaired. This service began when Helen Keller challenged Lions to become "knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness" during the 1925 Lions Clubs International Convention. We Serve - Nearly 1.35 million Lions members in 207 countries and geographic areas answer the needs that challenge the communities of the world. Lions tackle tough problems like blindness, drug abuse prevention and diabetes awareness.
Global neighbors - Lions members—men and women—provide immediate and sustained relief in time of disaster and offer long-term assistance to those in need. Lions collect and recycle eyeglasses for distribution in developing countries and treat millions of people to prevent river blindness.
Community Leaders - Lions improve the quality of life in their local communities by building parks, supporting hospitals and establishing water treatment programs. For 95 years, whenever there is a need at home or around the world, Lions members are there to help—We Serve.
