The Confluence Lions Club meets twice a month for dinner at 6:00 pm on the 2nd and 4th Mondays. The first meeting of the month is held at Mitch's in Confluence, PA. The second meeting of the month is held at the Addison United Methodist Church in Addison, Pennsylvania.
The club has about forty members. There is always a need for new members who will enjoy participating in the clubs service activities and a relationship with other members of the community.
Even though the clubs primary objective is service-oriented projects, socializing is encouraged. Several of these events are held throughout the year and includes a members Steak Fry, Christmas Party and Charter Night Dinner that includes our spouses and guests.
