Kent Tuscarawas Lions Club

The International Association of Lions Clubs’ 46,000 clubs and 1.35 million members make us the world’s largest volunteer service club organization. We’re also one of the most effective. Our members do whatever is needed to help their local campus and community. 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.
