Serving the Community, the World and Lionism since 1947

=============    TANEYTOWN LIONS - "WE SERVE"        ================


The Taneytown Lions Club was organized June 24, 1947, sponsored by the Union Bridge Lions and chartered September 9, 1947 with 29 charter members.  The club continues to serve the community with many service projects, donations to worthy causes, and help in times of need.  We support Lions number one priority of Sight Conservation and aid to the visually impaired with significant contributions to the Maryland Eye Bank, Lions Vision Research Center (LVRC), and Leader Dog Program.  We have helped many needy individuals locally with eye exams and glasses.  Lions everywhere are proud to proclaim that 100% of all proceeds from fundraisers are donated.  Administrative costs are absorbed by dues and internal club activities.
