Clermont-Minneola Lions Club was founded April 12, 1949 with 31 members and has had a significant impact on the community ever since. 

Gun shoots have become the most popular fund raising events the past several years. Gun shoots are conducted the second, third and fourth Saturdays from 8:00 am - noon at our range located in Groveland directly across from Tractor Supply on SR 50.   The range operates three Saturdays mornings 8-noon each month.  Handguns only the 2nd and 4th Saturdays.  Turkey shoot (target and skeet) shotguns only on the 3rd Saturday morning.  Cost for using pistol range is $15.00 - bring your own ammo.  Cost for Turkey shoot is $3.00 per round - closest to center wins a sharing the pot.  Club furnishes shells (4-10, 12, 16 ga.)  Cost for skeet is $5.00 for 10 clays using your own shells. Club has shells available at $1.00 each.

The Club is also involved with vision diabetes screening several times a year at different locations.

The Club is involved with collection of used glasses that are sorted, classified and shipped all over the world. 

Longest continuing serving members are: Nick Jones and Lion, Robert E. Lee, past District 35-0 Governor. 

The needs in our community are growing very fast.  Be a volunteer with a bunch of roaring Lions that know how to get things done and know how to have a great time doing it.



We have lost a truly great Lion Lion Robert E. Lee was PDG in our Dist. 1994-95 and founded the Groveland Lions Club no longer chartered as well as having helped start several Clubs in Central Florida. Lion Robert started our shooting range originally where Publix is currently located just west of Clermont on SR 50.  He was the Treasurer of the Conklin Center in Daytona Beach.  He was particularly close to Charlie Neville.  He and Charlie are the only recipients in our Club of the Crusader Award. He has been given numerous awards by LCI and the District for all the various accomplishments in many Lion programs.  He was in the US Navy on the destroyer USS Rowe.



Becoming a member of the Lions Club is a way you can become of great service to the community and beyond.  The public is also invited to check out their shooting range located across from Tractor Supply.  Patrons are urged to bring a care pack for homeless teenagers that will be distributed to our three local High Schools.  The range is open on the second, third and fourth Saturdays 8-noon.
