The Peru Lions Club consists of people who represent a cross section of our community.  Chartered in 1945, the Peru Lions Club continues to serve the community in a variety of ways.  We live by our motto "WE SERVE" and where there is a need,you will see a Lion.   A prime example are the free eye screenings we provide to incoming kindergartners, day cares, any child between the ages of 1 and 5, across upstate NY.  While our main goal is to aid the visually impaired and blind, our club contributes to over 18 service projects.  100% of YOUR donation at our Turkey Trot and other fundraisers goes back to your local community.  Thank you as always for your support.
