  • Lions are Ready to Help

    Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller and communities get better. That's because we help where help is needed – in our own communities and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy.

    Our 46,000 clubs and 1.35 million members make us the world's largest service club organization.

    We are one of the most effective service club organizations.

    We get the job done.

  • Memorial Day Spring Plant Sale

    Our Memorial Day Spring Plant Sale will be held Wednesday, May 16 - Friday, June 1, 2018.  Get a special plant for your loved one, coworker or friend as a gesture of thanks or in remembrance.  Plants are Vinca Cora Red, White & Violet or Mixed 10" hanging baskets.

    Fundraising occurs annually to support the Lyle Book Scholarship given annually to an ESC-20 employee’s child or grandchild and the Texas Lions Camp for children with disabilities in Kerrville, Texas.  Events include:

    • Poinsettia Plant Sale
    • Popcorn Sale
    • Raffle
    • Silent Auction
    • Spring Plant Sale

    Donations are accepted at any time by cash or check.  We are currently examining how you can make your donation electronically direct to the bank.

  • As a Lion, you’ll:

    • Help your community
    • Gain valuable skills
    • Make an impact on people’s lives, both locally and internationally
    • Learn to be a leader – and lead a respected organization
    • Network with business people in your community and around the world
    • Energize your life and have fun
    You’ll grow personally and professionally and you’ll know that what you do is worthwhile and appreciated.

    When it comes to meeting challenges, our responsibility is simple: We serve.

    In 205 countries, in hospitals and senior centers, in regions battered by natural disaster, in schools and in eyeglass recycling centers, Lions are at work, helping, leading, planning and supporting. Because we're local, we can serve the unique needs of the communities where we live. And because we're global, we can address challenges that go beyond borders.

    We want everyone to see a better tomorrow.

    That's why we support sight programs and services including vision screenings, eye banks and eyeglass recycling, provide eye care services to those at risk of losing their sight, and raise donations through fundraising campaigns.

    We believe everyone deserves a healthy life.

    From providing health programs that focus on hearing loss to supporting efforts to control and prevent diabetes, we're working to improve the health of children and adults around the world.

    We empower the next generation.

    Whether it's providing volunteer and leadership experiences in a Leo club or sharing a message of peace through our Peace Poster contest, our youth programs invest in the future by reaching out to young people.

    We serve local communities – and protect the planet.

    From performing hands-on service projects to providing emergency assistance, our community and environmental programs improve our communities – and protect the environment.
