Barrington, Illinois




The Barrington Lions Club is always looking for men and women who want to help serve the Barrington community. Our motto is "we Serve"

but we have fun doing our service. 

You will make life long friends in the community by going to our semi monthly dinner meetings, were we get together to plan our projects and socialize. 

The Barrington Lions raise money to help both local, state, national and international causes through our affiliation with Lions International.

  • We organize an annual golf outing that is now in its thirty fifth year.
  • The Barrington 4th of July Brat Tent is an annual event also in to its third decade as a Barrington tradition, is organized by the Barrington Lions Club. 
  • We donate and help staff Barrington Giving day.
  • Collect money for Illinois Lions Foundation every October during Lions Candy day.

​We also realize that Lions donate a lot of their free time to the club, so we do try to make it fun with member events like

  • Lions Steak Fry and membership Dinner every August.
  • Lions Christmas Party
  • Lions Pig Roast
  • Lions District Bowling outing every February.
  • Along with the dinner meetings on the first and third Mondays of the month September through May.


It's easy to do.

Lion Jim Wilson

By Lion Sarah Wilson DC March 6, 2017

You know the Lions club improves our community, but do you know about all of our projects? Meet our members and get to know those people serving you community to make it better. Take Jim Wilson here. He has been serving as a Barrington Lions member for 25 years! That's impressive. He has been serving as many years as some of our members have been alive! Jim is personally invested as his son was born with 50% hearing loss in both ears. Jim's favorite event is the July 4, Brat tent celebration. Jim collects aluminum from the event, turns it in, and uses the funds to help kids who are hard of hearing go to Camp Lions. This is a great place where kids with hearing impairments all gather for a few weeks in the summer. Jim's son, now a successful lawyer, spent many years at Camp Lions. The camp hosts 250 campers every year. Come to a meeting, the golf outing in May or July 4 tent to meet our Lions star, Jim!
