Reaching Out

Working with members in our community to make a difference


For 80 years, the Elizabethtown Lions Club has devoted its energy to passionately serving the greater Elizabethtown area and through the power of Lions International, the world.

We place a special emphasis on providing vision services locally to those who cannot afford it, and providing support to young people through educational and sports award programs.

We also support the Elizabethtown Community Cupboard, as well as the Elizabethtown and Rheems Fire Departments.

Please plan to SUPPORT our 19th annual chicken BBQ on Saturday September 12, 2020 - TICKETS AVAILABLE NOW!

This years' BBQ is presented by Moats' Auto Repair, Due to safety concerns with COVID-19, we are not holding the cruise this year.

Locally, nationally and internationally, the Lions are an advocate for the Blind and Vision Impaired, and the Disabled. We also strive to strengthen our community through teamwork, partnership, and fellowship.

 When assistance is needed


 for a better future

Each year we perform several service projects and hold fundraising activities to enable those projects.

Recently we have added a monthly award to recognize an outstanding student at the CTC.

We meet regularly at 6:15PM on the fourth Tuesday of the month. Due to COVID-19, our meeting location is a bit variable at the moment, but for now we will be at Christ Lutheran Church on E High Street.
