Griffin students get eye screening and a hearing check from Steamboat Lions each fall. Using state of the art equipment, Lions can quickly screen each child for vision and hearing problems so that parents are aware of possible issues and can schedule followup care by a medical professional.
Steamboat Lions also support the Lions Low Vision Resource Center in Olympia where Steamboat residents with low vision can find low vision aids at no cost.
Steamboat residents generously share their slightly used paper and plastic bags for re-use at the FoodBank. Thanks to the Griffin Fire Department for providing a drop off location and for help in loading us up each week.
Griffin Foundation Picnic, St. Christopher's Blueberry Bash, Fry Cove cleanup or Halloween Trunk or Treat. Lions take pride in our community and work to make community events a success. See you at a Steamboat event soon!
Steamboat Lions support the Olympia Lions plastic recycling project to help keep plastic film out of our landfills and out of Puget Sound. Your CLEAN used plastic film products can be dropped off at the Griffin Fire Station #1.
Steamboat Lions transport the plastic to the Olympia Food Bank. At the Food Bank, Lions sort and package the clean plastic for shipment to Trex where it is recycled into outdoor furniture and decking.

Your old eyeglasses can help someone else see. Donate your glasses on the Steamboat Peninsula at Island Market, 3403 Steamboat Island Road.
Steamboat Lions collect used eyeglasses for the Northwest Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center in Lacey. Glasses are sorted, cleaned, read for prescription and packaged for delivery to those who have no other way to get glasses.
We collect used hearing aids too. Just drop them in the eyeglass box at Island Market.
Each fall, Steamboat Lions take orders for these big 40 lb boxes of fresh Fuji apples and then deliver them to our customers right here on the Peninsula.
The Lions Apple Sale is our main fundraiser and helps to support Camp Leo for Children with Diabetes as well as our local Steamboat projects.
You can order by contacting any Lion or use the Order Apples button to get more info.
Such a fun project! Steamboat Lions are delighted to present each Griffin 3rd grade student with their very own dictionary. This book is often the very first book a child has owned - they get to write their name in it and take it home. Working with the teachers, Lions help the students discover how to find words, search the maps, or seek out interesting bits of information to share.
Steamboat Lions gathered up so much plastic last year that we earned a beautiful bench from Trex corporation. We donated the bench to the Lions Low Vision Resource Center in Olympia and it raised more than $1500 in a raffle. Steamboat residents looking for low vision aids like magnifying glasses, talking watches, or CCTV systems can get help at the LVRC - call the Lions EyeLine for an appointment,
