The Deer Park Lions Club was chartered in 1974.  In its history, the club has worked diligently to serve the Gamber-Smallwood area of Carroll County. More than $425,000 has been given back to our community through our various service programs.  We loan hospital equipment, collect used eyeglasses and hearing aids for recycling in third-world countries, participate in the state adopt-a-highway program, and volunteer weekly at the Carroll Food Sunday food bank. We assist individuals in need of hearing aids or eyeglasses. Our Lions have given thousands of man-hours of labor in service to our neighbors.
