We Serve!

About Us


 The Newport News Lions Club was sponsored by the Norfolk Lions Club in 1933, making it the first Lions Club on the Peninsula.  In turn, the Newport News Lions Club sponsored other clubs in the area, earning the right to be called a "host" club (meaning that the club has sponsored at least 3 other Lions Clubs.)

We are a diverse club, with members coming from different backgrounds, ethnic groups and ages.

Our goal throughout our history has been to live up to the motto of Lions Club International, " We Serve".  

Lions Club International

Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with more than 1.4 million members in approximately 48,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world. 

 Lions serve. It’s that simple, and it has been since we first began in 1917.
