Welcome to the Oceanside Sea Lions Club!

We meet on the:
1st and 3rd Tuesday
from 7-8 pm

The Oceanside Sea Lions is one of the over 46,000 local clubs and more than 1.4 million members in over 200 countries around the world. Melvin Jones started the first Lions Club in Chicago in 1917.

Since 1923, when Helen Keller challenged the Lions to become the "Knights of the Blind", sight conservation has been the primary mission of the Lions. Throughout the world, Lions have dedicated themselves to take up Miss Keller's challenge.

The Oceanside Sea Lions have taken this challenge to heart. Since the 1960's (with the help of generous local eye doctors), they have furnished eyeglasses for thousands of children in the Oceanside, California area. In addition, they have sent several people to the Southern California Lions' Eye Institute in Santa Monica for eye operations performed by highly skilled surgeons at little or not cost to the recipients.

We also support many local organizations such as Local Schools, Lion Camps at Teresita Pines, Oceanside Pacific Kiwanis Beach Fun Day, Brother Bennos, and more. As you may have guessed, all this takes time and money. To achieve these goals, the Sea Lions have three major fundraisers annually.

Since 1981, we have sponsored the Miss Oceanside Pageant. This pageant provides great talent and develop self esteem. And in 2010 we added the Miss Teen Oceanside Scholarship Pageant. The event became known as Miss Oceanside & Miss Teen Oceanside Scholarship Pageant starting 2010. The winners become goodwill ambassadors to the City of Oceanside, Oceanside Chamber of Commerce and Oceanside Sea Lions Club. Our next annual fundraiser is fun for the whole family "Bowl for the Blind". Another great fundraiser is "White Cane Days" where Lions members go to the public and solicit funds. Keep a look out for Lions at your local shopping centers. The Lions Club is constantly looking for new and fun ideas for fund-raising and new members to help us with this exciting undertakings.
