Wilmington Cape Fear Lions Club


Welcome To the Cape Fear Lions Web Site

We are a service organization made up of men & women from all walks of life in our community. We are people who help in any way we can and get enjoyment out of it. We give freely of our time and efforts to help make Wilmington special.

The Cape Fear Lions are members of Lions Club International meeting the needs of local communities and the world. The 1.35 million members of our volunteer organization in 206 countries and geographic areas are different in many ways, but share a core belief – community is what we make it.

The First Lions Club was formed in 1917. The Cape Fear Lions Club was chartered in 1955. Our international motto is; WE SERVE. Our number one goal is the prevention and reversal of Blindness.
