Mission Statement:

To be the leader in community and humanitarian service. To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace, and promote international understanding through the Lions Clubs Association.  “We Serve” is more than a motto, it is our commitment to the Signal Mountain and Walden communities on the mountain.

Lions Share

 100% of donations to the Signal Mountain Lions go back to the community to support grant programs that allow us to help the local community and others on a larger scale and do more than they could on their own.

Kid Sight Screening 

This is one of the most important services of the Lions Club.  Every year for the past 23+ years we have offered free eye screening for children from 1 to 6 years at the preschools in the community.  Using specialized handheld, portable, digital equipment, an image of the child’s eyes is taken (like a photograph).  The images are then sent to be analyzed by professionals at the Vanderbilt Pediatric Eye Center in Nashville.  If a problem is detected the parents are notified and recommendations for further follow up are made.  This is all free of charge and Lions provide funding for follow up care if needed.  If diagnosed and treated before the age of six many problems can be successfully treated.  If left untreated the sight problem could become a permanent problem.

Lion of the Month

Every month we feature one of our members with interesting details of their background and why they enjoy being a Lion.  This month’s Lion is George Davenport.
