SERVING THE BURTONSVILLE COMMUNITY SINCE 1954
The Burtonsville Lions Club was chartered in 1954 to join with the other clubs in pledging unselfish service to our local community and to those less fortunate than ourselves. Club members volunteer their time and energy to a variety of fundraising efforts, all of the profits from which are then designated for charitable uses. In typical years, through the efforts of our members and friends, we staff White Cane collection days, sell Christmas trees, and conduct a charity golf tournament.
While a portion of our budget supports the programs of the larger International Association, our aim is to donate and otherwise spend our funds locally. Currently 80% of our annual operating budget is directed toward local efforts.
