Springfield Lions Club

Celebrating Over 50 Years of Community Service

The Springfield Lions Club is a service club, with the goal of assisting the community and the less fortunate, primarily the hearing and sight impaired. Our motto is “We Serve”. The Club began with 36 charter members in 1948 and now has 84 members.

The Springfield Lions Club is chartered by Lions Clubs International, which is headquartered in Oak Brook, IL who has assisted the blind and deaf since 1917. Lions International is the largest service club in the world, having 1.4 million members in almost every country in the world.
