The Norwalk Lions Club has been serving the community of Norwalk since 1946 Celebrating our 71st year. The club consists of local men and women from all walks of life who share a serious commitment to community service and improvement. They believe that by working together they can accomplish far more than would be possible as individuals. There are 1.4 million Lion members worldwide belonging to 46,000 clubs in 206 countries. Organized in 1917, Lions Clubs International has been united in a single cause; helping those less fortunate. In 1987, Lions Clubs International became one of the first service clubs to admit women. The mission of the Lions International is "To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions Clubs".
