The Lakeland Lions Club is one of the largest Lions Clubs in Western Tennessee and a great supporter of our community. Lakeland Lions not only support the National and International Lions projects aimed at blindness prevention, assistance for the blind, and disaster relief, but also are of significant importance to our local community.
Lakeland Lions provide monetary and volunteer support to all our local schools and local sight oriented education institutions. This is a total of 14 different learning centers and includes almost every local public school a Lakeland child could attend.
The Lakeland Lions Club has been officially and publicly recognized by the Shelby County School Board and City of Lakeland officials for the depth and breadth of their support to the Lakeland and Shelby County communities.
We volunteer at, and sponsor most Lakeland city events. These include the Fall/Halloween Festival, Christmas Tree Lighting, Fishing Rodeo, Easter Egg Hunt and anything else the city needs.
We have built two park pavilions and provided play equipment for several playgrounds. At the International Harvester Park clubhouse we replaced the floor and funded needed repairs. And more.
The Lakeland Lions meet twice a month. On the first Saturday of the month we have a 7:30 a.m. breakfast meeting at the International Harvester Club House Park and a buffet dinner meeting at Club Windward on the third Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m.
The main source of revenue to fund our activities are Pecan Sales throughout the holiday season. You may support the Lakeland Lions activities by purchasing our pecans at the Lakeland Kroger, Trustmark Bank, Lakeland Cleaners, Walgreens, and other local businesses. If you own a local business and would like to support the Lions activities by selling pecans on our behalf, please contact us.
