Business Genre:
Short Business Description:
Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world every day because they share a core belief – to serve their community.

Lions have a dynamic history. Founded in 1917, we are best known for fighting blindness, but we also volunteer for many different kinds of community projects – including caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled.

Lions give sight. By conducting vision screenings, equipping hospitals and clinics, distributing medicine and raising awareness of eye disease, Lions work toward their mission of providing vision for all. We have extended our commitment to sight conservation through countless local efforts and through our international SightFirst Program, which works to eradicate blindness.

Lions serve youth. Our community projects often support local children and schools through scholarships, recreation and mentoring. Internationally, we offer many programs, including the Peace Poster Contest, Youth Camps and Exchange and Lions Quest.

Our Leo Program provides the youth of the world with an opportunity for personal development through volunteering. There are approximately 144,000 Leos and 5,700 Leo clubs in more than 140 countries worldwide.

Lions award grants. Since 1968, the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) has awarded more than US$700 million in grants to support Lions humanitarian projects around the world. LCIF was also ranked the number one nongovernmental organization in a 2007 study by The Financial Times.

Lions help during disasters. Together, our Foundation and Lions are helping communities following natural disasters by providing for immediate needs such as food, water, clothing and medical supplies – and aiding in long-term reconstruction.

Lions are active. Our motto is “We Serve.” Lions are part of a global service network, doing whatever is necessary to help our local communities.

Senior Citizen Center Applauded!

Pansy Hollis, the Executive Director for the Watonga Senior Citizens Center received an ‘Outstanding Volunteer’ award from NODA on May 16, 2008.



Pansy has served as coordinator of Senior Citizen Center since 2004. She doesn’t accept payment and for the first 2 years she came in every day in order to conduct the business of the center and prepare the financial reports for the board meeting each month. She fills when the cooks are off (she is a fabulous cook and she loves to cook). Pansy often brings cinnamon rolls from home she has baked to serve the city workers on their daily coffee breaks. She’s known for her delicious cream pies which she bakes at home and brings to the center to serve. Pansy is regularly involved in community happenings and etc. She is a talented quilt maker and helps many learn to quilt. She works on fundraising events of the center to support it’s existence.

The Watonga Senior Citizen’s Center was chosen by NODA from 7 counties as the Outstanding Senior Center.



When you walk in the door at the center, the room has a pleasing neat appearance of being well kept and clean. The kitchen being open-like looks inviting of the good meal being served. There are two cooks every day plus volunteers who provide assistance as needed. Donations and fundraisers support the center along with quilting money paid by those bringing in quilts to be quilted. Serving the Kiwanis Club once a week is another means of support. The center provides the meals on wheels every weekday that are delivered by volunteers. Meals in the center are served five days a week around games of dominoes, canastas and pitch. A quilting club meets at the center twice a month. Birthdays are celebrated every month on the last Friday with Bingo and prizes.



For the Oklahoma Centennial in 2007 an attractive mural was painted on the center’s building that is an inviting view for the public as they enter Watonga from the south. This was paid for by donations of individuals and business.
