The Lake Forest/Lake Bluff Lions Club is a local organization that meets monthly to socialize, have fun & positively affect our local and global community. Our primary mission is to improve the quality of life for the visually impaired, with a secondary mission to assist and provide opportunity to local youth. 

Through fund raising efforts we support vision research, Leader Dogs, college scholarships, little league baseball, and GLASA (Great Lakes Adaptive Sports Association) just to name a few.

We are your local Lions Club. We Serve.
