We Serve.

The Centerville Lions Club was chartered on February 20, 1967 and has been serving the people in and around Centerville Georgia continuously since then. We meet at 612 Houston Lake Road in Centerville, near the Post office. Our club has over 40 members and we continually seek service minded individuals to experience the pride of being a Lion, satisfaction in helping others, a commitment to carry out and accomplish community goals and fellowship in the largest service organization in the world. Membership is by invitation and any person 21 years of age or older, with good morale character and a good reputation may be granted membership in the Lions Club.

Our Mission - "We Serve", this is the Lions official motto. Since its inception in 1917, Lions Clubs International has been dedicated to helping those less fortunate in their communities and around the world. Cutting across all national, racial and cultural boundaries, activities have included:

Sight conservation and work with the visually impaired
Hearing conservation and work with the hearing impaired
Citizenship, educational, health and social services
Youth programs including drug education and prevention, community outreach and volunteer programs
Diabetes detection and research
Work for international cooperation and understanding, including international youth camps, youth exchange programs and the Lions International Peace Poster Contest.

To accomplish our mission, we hold two meetings, one each on the first and third Mondays each month at 7:30 p.m. where we discuss the business and projects of the Centerville Lions Club. At the first meeting, our Club President conducts business of the Club and members participate in decisions on club matters. The second meeting is Program Night which is also a dinner meeting when spouses and guests are invited to join in the spirit of Lionism. The program consists of interesting talks on a variety of subjects given by guest speakers from many walks of life and professions. Members are urged to attend all meetings and we have members that boast years of 100% attendance. Excused absences are always ok.

During the course of the year there are four zone meetings which all club Presidents and Secretaries attend. Members are also encouraged to attend these to show support among Lions and their efforts. There are four district functions in which all members are invited; these include the Summer Conference, and the District Rally. Additionally the State Convention is always a highlight of the year each summer.
