McFarland Lioness/Lions Club

"We Serve"


McFarland Lioness are volunteers who, with care and compassion, reach out and address areas of need in our community and beyond. We are members of Lions Clubs International (LCI), the largest service organization in the world, with more than 1.4 million members in over 48,000 clubs worldwide. 

The McFarland Lioness/Lions Club is known for working closely in our local community on a variety of projects. Some of our volunteer service projects include vision screening for young children, delivering greeting cards to older adults, food drives for the McFarland Food Pantry, and collecting needed items for students and classrooms. Some of our fundraising projects include an annual raffle, poinsettia sale, and bake sale in conjunction with the Lions Chicken BBQ on Memorial Day, and the money raised supports our donations to local organizations and beyond. Club members also build new friendships through social events including an annual holiday auction, summer outing, and our monthly meetings.

Monthly Meetings

The McFarland Lioness meet at 6:30 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month (except July and August). at the Maple Tree in McFarland.  Members often meet early at 5:15 p.m. for a social time and enjoy an optional dinner at 6:00 p.m. prior to the meeting.   

Our meetings begin with a member sharing “Words of Inspiration” and everyone is invited to say the Pledge of Allegiance and sing America (My Country 'Tis of Thee).  The special program or activity varies from meeting to meeting (often an outside speaker), and club business is discussed as appropriate. Members often bring in-kind donations to meetings (for local organizations highlighted each month) and also a few dollar bills (to participate in optional fun opportunities to support our club, e.g., money raffle, games). 

If you're interested in joining the McFarland Lioness, please contact one of our officers, any club member, or e-mail us at for more information. Members pay annual dues of $75 per year (the club will pay the one-time LCI new member fee of $35).
