We Serve

We are Lions. We serve our community with the focus on common needs such as sight, health, youth, elderly, the environment and disaster relief.

“What if these men,” Melvin Jones asked, “who are successful because of their drive, intelligence and ambition, were to put their talents to work improving their communities?” Thus, at his invitation, delegates from men’s clubs met in Chicago to lay the groundwork for such an organization and on June 7, 1917, Lions Clubs International was born.

In 1928 our club was founded in Las Cruces. We’re always welcoming new visitors who we encourage to join ours or another club.

We have a wide variety of people in our ranks. Business people to home makers to retirees.

Community Projects

Candlelight Knolls Park

Headed by Past President Lion Philip VanVeen, this park needed a place to rest. This beautiful park was without a bench and Lion Philip made this happen.
