Club History

Our members come from all walks of life. We are business owners, teachers, professionals, home makers, community leaders, all interested in donating our time and talents to help our community and others world wide.

We have grown in numbers throughout our existence to approximately 50 members. Originally our club was a part of the Costa Mesa Newport Harbor Lions Clubs, also known as the “Fish Fry Club.” We were classified as “Lionesses.”

In 1992, we chartered as a separate club and became official Lions or the “Newport Harbor Costa Mesa Lions Club.” We are also known as the “Harbor Mesa Lions.”

Our club visits other clubs in the District, not only to meet other Lions, but to learn about their projects and events. We also participate in and attend the District Convention each May and we have won many awards for our efforts.

We enjoy the networking with others who have the same causes and devote our time to help those in need. We welcome you to visit and join the largest service organization in the world, Lions International.

Newport Harbor Costa Mesa Lions Club is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization.
