A Non-Profit Service Organization dedicated to volunteering and service in the community and surrounding area of Reston, VA
The Reston Lions Club is a group of men and women, varying in age from the mid-twenties to the late seventies, who volunteer their time to humanitarian causes in Reston, Virginia and the world community. We also conduct service projects to raise funds to help those in need. In keeping with the traditions of Lions Clubs International, all funds raised from the public go into community support. The Lions motto is "We Serve".
Our meetings are held on the 1st Wednesday every month at 7:00 PM. The cost is $10-15 for a delicious meal held at:
Hidden Creek Country Club
1711 Clubhouse Road, Reston, VA 20190
The Reston Lions Club was chartered on May 23, 1967, making it a Golden Anniversary Club, founded fifty years after Melvin Jones organized the first Lions Clubs in Chicago. This was also shortly after the planned community of Reston was organized in the Northwest corner of Fairfax County, Virginia, in late 1964. Though a relatively young club in history, we are dynamic in membership turnover due to the transient nature of Reston. The club currently includes members who joined the Lions in California, Idaho, Maine, and New Jersey and we have former members in Utah, North Carolina, Blacksburg VA, and Florida.
