About Us....

Chartered May 10, 1946.

Serving State College, PA and vicinity.


Membership in the State College Lions Club is open to both men and women age 18 and older and requires a commitment of time and effort to the club's goals. Regular attendance at meetings and help with club activities is desired, but we also understand today's busy schedules and are flexible. You can commit as much time as you wish and as your schedule allows.

Our Club meets the 3rd Thursday of every month. Meetings are informal. Our fundraising and service activities are varied and scheduled throughout the year.

Dues are approximately $90 per year, including subscriptions to both the national and state publications. Meals at our informal dinner meetings are the responsibility of the individual. If you are interested in attending a meeting and learning more about the organization, feel free to join us. If you have any questions, select "memberships" on the Contact Us page.


The Club meets at 6:15pm on the 3rd Thursday of each month. These casual dress dinner meetings feature a discussion of Club activities and sometimes a guest speaker or presentation. Currently we are seeking a new permanent location, so refer to our calendar of events on our home page for the current meeting location.
