The Lions of Rhode Island are a group of men and women dedicated to the mission of serving those in need. With over 1100 members throughout 31 clubs in the great state of Rhode Island we manage to stay busy with throwing events, volunteering, raising money for those in need, and meeting to come up with the next best idea. Our mission statement is very simple “We Serve.” We serve has been our guiding principle since 1917 when Lions International was founded in Chicago.
Lions clubs are sorted by what county they reside in. Explore and learn more about the various clubs of Rhode Island.
