Who are the Gardner Lions?
The Gardner Lions Club was founded on August 25, 1949. Since then we have grown and changed but have always maintained our strong focus on serving the Gardner community. Our goal is to make Gardner a great place to live, work, and play in. We support many projects within our district both financially and with manpower whenever needed.
We're at our best when we're working together! Our list of local community activities, projects, and events are numerous. Our members observe longstanding commitments, but we are also open to new ideas and ways to help our neighbors and our friends. At our bi-monthly meetings, we discuss ongoing projects and relevant business, but we also enjoy each other's company.
Want to know more about us? Just ask. The Gardner Lions are a strong and proud organization and our members are happy to share our experiences, assist wherever possible, discuss ongoing initiatives and provide information.
