About Us

Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world. Our 1.35 million members - who perform community service in 207 countries and geographic areas are different in many ways, but share a core belief: Community is what we make it.

The South Grand Lake Lions Club (SGLLC) is a volunteer-based nonprofit organization that supports the community of Grand Lake. We provide assistance to groups and organizations; and charitable support to individuals to sustain health, dignity, and protection.

The SGLLC has provided support for five care homes and the Oklahoma Boys Ranch. Our scholarship project has provided many local youths the opportunity to enhance their higher education and careers. We have provided over 150 eyeglasses and eye exams, mostly to the children of the community. The SGLLC purchased over 250 smoke detectors that were installed in local homes by our local fire departments.

The Ketchum High School Special Olympics has received $3,000 in the last three years. The SGLLC community support of the Langley City Park has been monumental in the park receiving a $30,000 grant for new playground equipment and our new project, Veterans’ Park, that was completed in 2012. This year, a Leo’s Club was formed with approximately 42 youths, which will ensure the growth of our Lions Club for many years to come.

The SGLLC is the largest Lions Club in the state of Oklahoma. When you join Lions, you join a global service network. So, at the same time you're doing local community service, you can also contribute to Lions volunteer efforts around the world.

Lions Clubs – Ready to Help, Worldwide

Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better. That's because we help where help is needed – in our own communities and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy.

The World's Largest Service Club Organization

Our 46,000 clubs and 1.35 million members make us the world's largest service club organization. We're also one of the most effective. Our members do whatever is needed to help their local communities. Everywhere we work, we make friends. With children who need eyeglasses, with seniors who don’t have enough to eat, and with people we may never meet.

Mission Statement

To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions club

Our Work

More Volunteers Doing More Community Work in More Places than Any Service Club Organization

When it comes to meeting challenges, our response is simple: We serve. In 207 countries, in hospitals and senior centers, in regions battered by natural disaster, in schools, and eyeglass recycling centers; Lions are doing community volunteer work, helping, leading, planning, and supporting. Because we're local, we can serve the unique needs of the communities we live in. And because we're global, we can address challenges that go beyond borders.

We want everyone to see a better tomorrow. That's why we support sight programs and services including vision screenings, eye banks and eyeglass recycling. Provide eye care services to those at risk of losing their sight. And raise donations through campaigns like SightFirst and Campaign SightFirst II.

We believe everyone deserves a healthy life. From providing health programs that focus on hearing loss to supporting efforts to control and prevent diabetes, Lions volunteers are working to improve the health of children and adults around the world.

We empower the next generation. Whether it's providing youth volunteer opportunities and leadership experiences in a Leo club or sharing a message of peace through our Peace Poster contest, our youth programs invest in the future by reaching out to young people.

We serve local communities – and protect the planet.  From performing hands-on community work and service projects to providing emergency assistance, our community and environment programs improve our communities – and protect the environment.
