coon rapids lions club

On Feb. 4, 1954, Lions Clubs International Headquarters in Oak Brook, Ill., accepted a charter application for a Lions Club to be formed in Coon Rapids. Since that date, more than 500 men and women have been a part of the ranks for this volunteer service club, which has supported the community and many causes during the past 60 years. Just 15 years after the Lions Club was formed, the Coon Rapids Lioness Club began its service in the community in 1969. Forty-five years later, the Lioness Club is still an important part of Coon Rapids through its various service projects.
