The Brussels Lions Club is located in Door County, the peninsula that sticks out into Lake Michigan in Northeastern Wisconsin.  Location map

Brussels is located about 30 miles Northeast of Green Bay, home of the 13-time World Champion/4-time Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers (sorry about that Chicago Bears fans [only 9]).

The Brussels Lions Club was formed in 1960 and draws most of its membership from the small  townships of Brussels, Union & Gardner.

As of July 2023 we have 55 men & women in our club.  We have been as large as 55 members and as small as 20.

Our only fundraiser of the year is the Belgian Days festival held the second weekend of July at our town park.  Belgian Days celebrates the rich Belgian heritage of the local area .

The funds raised at Belgian Days go to support the many state and international causes of Lions, but is heavily invested back in our community.  (see the picture of our donation history sign on the Photo Gallery page)

Some of the local causes we support are three or four $2,000 (US$) scholarships to graduates from Southern Door High School, making constant improvements to our town park, providing free medical equipment to those in need in our area, supporting a local food bank with a "fill-the-float" drive, and providing donations when people in our community have medical or social setbacks.

We are also very proud to be active supporters of the Wisconsin Lions Camp  that provides free camping experiences for children and adults with sight handicaps, hearing impairments, cognitive disabilities and diabetes.  We were also annual donators to the Lions Pride Endowment Fund of Wisconsin Inc. that had a goal of a $25 million endowment to keep our camp going for years to come.  In addition we donate to the Lions Eye Bank of Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Lions Foundation (WLF) and the Lions Club International Foundation (LCIF) as well as numerous other causes.

If you are ever in the area and can make one of our meetings, please feel free to contact us.  We would love to tell you more about our club, our history, and the Door County area.
