Altoona Lions Club  Altoona Lions Club
This is one of two Altoona Lions Club web places. The other is new as of 2018. It is on Facebook. Search Facebook for "Altoona-Iowa Lions Club".

Welcome to our Altoona Lions web site. We are called "The Spin Art Lions" because we earn most of our revenue by running a Spin Art booth. Please see the description of our Spin Art project below.

Each year our club performs a variety of community service activities. Some involve donating money to other organizations or projects, some involve Lions Labor, and some are just for fun.

We meet twice a month, and always either have a speaker or go on a short “trip” to an area business or function organization.

We would welcome your involvement in our Lions Group. We have lots of fun while doing rewarding community service. If you are interested in becoming a Lion, or interested in just talking with a current Lion about the group, please contact any of our club officers.

Again, thanks for visiting our web site. Please check regularly, since we will add photos, activities, and news regularly.

Altoona Lions Spin Art Booth At Iowa State Fair
Altoona Lions Spin Art Booth At Iowa State Fair
The above photo shows the Altoona Lions Spin Art booth at the Iowa State Fair. We have run this booth for 48 years (as of 2012). Kids love it, because it is fun. Parents love it because it is the best bargain at the Fair.

It requires over 100 people, Lions members and Lions friends, to run the stand for the 11 days of the Fair each year.

The State Fair booth, plus running the booth at other places such as Prairie Meadows and the Des Moines Art Fair, have generated over $250,000 over the years. The Lions have donated those Spin Art revenues to hundreds of community service projects.
