The Laingsburg Lions Club is a local chapter
of Lions International, the largest community service
organization with over 1,350,000 members and 46,000 clubs in 207 countries worldwide.
Laingsburg Lions Club is a community action organization that serves not only those at the local level but state and national levels. We
offer community-minded individuals the opportunity to join in good fellowship and to help
their fellow man at a variety of levels.
At the state and national level, our organizations contribute to programs including:
White Cane, Leader Dogs for the Blind, Braille Transcribing, Radio Talking Book, Drug Awareness,
Diabetes Awareness, and other programs.
Some of our recent projects and donations here in Laingsburg are as follows: $2,000 in support of the public library electronic books, another $7,500 for the new basketball courts at Bates Scout park (concrete is scheduled to be poured week of Springtime festival 2018) , Co-sponser of the new football field scoreboard, $2,500 for Laingsburg Band students who are part of the Michigan Lions All-State band, community dinners, as well as many others. We have built pavillions and picnic tables in and for our local park, installed a park well, contributed to a fire truck filling station well, have erected fences for various athlete fields, erected flag poles, and purchased bleachers for the ball parks at Bates Scouts Park. We organized our members to renovate and modernize the bathroom facilities at Bates Scout park. Benches have been purchased and placed along the main street, Grand River Ave, to provide resting areas. The list goes on.
The Laingsburg Lions Club also provides financial support to our school system as well as other Lion programs. Recently nearly $10,000 dollars was donated by the Laingsburg Lions Club to provide new school programs including materials for the new robotics program.
In general we try to provide service to the community where ever it is
Our organization is open to all who wish to participate. We fund our programs
through two primary means. The May Spring Time Festival and the hosting of Millionaire Parties held in Lansing and Owosso.We are in need of Laingsburg Lions Club members. To continue to provide the services we provide takes members who have a desire to help their community be successful and friendly. All
we ask of our fellow Lions is that they find their own niche in our organization where they can
serve effectively. We are all limited by time and personal committments and only ask
that you share with us the time you can provide. I can guarantee it will make your heart feel good knowing you have given something back to the community in which you live.
Our motto is, "We Serve".
