While 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, our primary focus is that of our local community.
Some of our recent projects and donations here in Laingsburg are as follows: 2018, $2,000 in annual support of the public library electronic books, $22,000+ for the new basketball courts at Bates Scout park, 2017, $5,000 as 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 such as our open to the community Thanksgiving diner. In the past we have built pavillions, assembled picnic tables in our local park, installed a park water well, contributed to the installatoin of the Laingsburg 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 renovated and modernized the bathroom facilities at Bates Scout park. Benches have been purchased and placed along the main street, Grand River Ave, to provide resting areas for those citizens who need to walk to the grocery store. The list goes on.
The Laingsburg Lions Club has also provided 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 which included materials for the new robotics program.
In general we try to provide service to the community where ever it is needed.
Our organization is open to all who wish to participate. Our charter and bylaws prevent us from supporting any political interests. As members we incur no payment of any type for our work as volunteers. We currently fund our programs from two primary sources: Our Annual May Spring Time Festival and by volunteering and hosting of Millionaire Parties held in Lansing and Owosso.
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.
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.
