The Valleyview Overlanders Lions Club was created from two clubs that merged to become one entity.
Now, the Valleyview is being dissolved, with remaining members transferring to other Lions clubs of their choice.
The Valleyview Overlanders Lions Club served Kamloops for 50 years, supporting many individuals and organizations along the way. The club was involved in a wide variety of projects, including social service agencies that help children, youth, adults and families
The club was also active in reaching out to help those living in poverty, experiencing homelessness, facing financial instability and dealing with mental, intellectual, physical or developmental disabilities.
The Valleyview Overlanders Lions Club collaborated with many groups to provide funds and volunteers for projects related to environmental stewardship, animal protection and educational services, some of which included bursaries and scholarships for students graduating from high school.
The club’s Facebook page, which has links to other organizations, remains online.
