Our iconic bronze lions stand guard all day, every day, covered with rain, snow, hail, and blazing sun. They are loved by neighbors and remembered by visitors. But they have never been named! These brave beasts need a little love, and we want to show them how much we care. You can help conserve the lions and give each lion a name. Take a look at their personalities — one is friendly and the other is fierce. They They traveled from the Studio Andreoni Roma in Italy to St. Johnsbury in 1894 and have delighted visitors from around the world for generations. How many of you have pictures of your children (or yourself) seated on the reclining or the growling lion?

Make your gift of $50 or more for a chance to name the lions. We’ll draw a name for each lion on June 15.
