History of Our Club
The Peru Lions Club was chartered in 1945 and today its members continue
to serve their community in many ways.
In 1986, Lions Club International opened its membership to women with
Marjorie McCarty became the first female member of the Peru Lions Club,
starting a proud tradition of shared contributions by all. Marge would later become the first female district governor for the Northern District 20W.
Peru Lions Club meets twice a month to give members opportunity to
develop ideas by which we can best implement our motto, which is "We Serve".
Members may become active through a variety of roles that range from
leadership initiatives to hands-on service throughout the our community
and the surrounding area.
Service to our Community
The primary goal of Peru Lions is to aid the blind and visually impaired. The club also contributes to area service organizations and projects that assist others.
