LIONS CLUB OF TAOS
For 94 years, our membership has actively been making Taos
and surrounding communities a better place to live.
We welcome new members with the same commitment to service.
AT A GLANCE
We are 35 members strong. Our membership comes from diverse backgrounds, but we all share one common value: we are committed to serving our community. You probably already know the Lions Club has made Tio Vivo available to generations of kids; but did you know we also put 76 US Flags around the Taos Plaza on major holidays? Did you know we are behind the free eye screenings at all Taos county schools? These are just a few of our club projects, read on to learn about the many other ways we serve the Taos community.
WAYS WE HELP
Meaningful Service, Unforgettable Experiences.
We are the
Knights of the Blind!
We organize and conduct free vision screening to all Taos students.
Helping Elders stay in their homes by offering free guidance as they apply for Federal Assistance programs.
Our members proudly place 76 US Flags around the Taos Plaza for most major holidays. We believe in displaying our patriotic spirit.
For 87 years, the Lions Club has been bringing smiles to kids and parents alike. Tio Vivo is a New Mexico treasure.
We partner with three local eye care professionals to subsidize eye exams, eyeglasses, and cataract surgery for local residents in need.
We collect unneeded eyeglasses and redistribute them to those who can benefit from clearer vision.
Would you like to support our efforts?
We welcome all donations of time or treasure.

Responding to a call from Helen Keller in 1925, to be "Knights of the Blind", the Lions Club has been focused on vision issues. We use up-to-date technology to screen the eyes of every Taos County student (with parental consent) to identify vision impairments as early as possible. We have been proudly providing this free service for nearly twenty years.
