We are a non-profit, non-political, service organization.  Our primary purpose is to raise funds to help meet
the charitable needs of our community.   Our mission is:  To form a better spirit of neighborliness and
cooperation for the betterment of the Club, community, and fellow members.
   The original club, called the Lakeside Ladies Club, was formed on May 26, 1910.  The Welfare Club,
formed in 1929, voted in the early 1980's to maintain the original name.  Now, the Lakeside Community Club
has a rich tradition of service to the West Shore of Flathead Lake, Montana.  The Club has grown from a
handful of members to over 170 women who meet every month to facilitate community outreach. Our major
fund-raising effort is the annual Community Fair held each year in July at the Lakeside Elementary School
gym and grounds.  Every dollar raised at the Fair is used to benefit our community.  Recipients of donations
from the Club are local organizations that provide unique services to the West Shore and Flathead Valley.

Annual charitable donations over the years include, but are not limited to:
Flathead County Animal Shelter
Lakeside Community Development Foundation
Lakeside Quick Response Unit (QRU)
Northwest Healthcare - ALERT - emergency helicopter services
Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) - Meals on Wheels
Rollins Volunteer Fire Department
