The mission of Lions Club International, Inc is to empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions clubs. 

On March 23, 2009, the Springfield Gardens Lions Club (SGLC) made history with 26 enthusiastic charter members. The SGLC was organized by transfer Lion Greta I. Salsbury, a member of the Brooklyn Prospect Heights Lions Club. The Brooklyn Prospect Heights Lions Club was the sponsoring club of the Springfield Gardens Lions Club. PDG Lion Earl Williams was the Guiding Lion to the club and provided much guidance to the club during its early years. The club met at St. Mary Magdalene Roman Catholic Church for its monthly meetings up to 2010. However, due to a devastating fire at the church, meetings were relocated to Christ the King Roman Catholic Church for seven years.  The club returned to St. Mary Magdalene RC Church, October 2017 in hosting monthly General Membership Meetings on the 2nd Tuesday of the month.



The Officers and Members of the Springfield Gardens Lions Club, Inc. look forward to the future of serving our community and welcome new members that want to “Serve”.
