    Davis Belowe Christmas Pary AGAIN

    The Davis Balowe Christmas party was a rousing success again this year. As you can see both the volunteers and the Children had a great time. Thanks to everyone in the club for helping.

    Recognizing our Treasurer

    We have a great admiration for our Treasurer, Lion Jerry Houck, who keeps us up to date with his treasurer reports. Because of his outstanding work he is presented with an award from Lion International. Great job Jerry. We really appreciate all you do for our club.

    Diabetes Awareness

    We had a great speaker at our last meeting, Lion Artrelle Spicely, RN – District Cahir on Diabetes Awareness. It is so easy to think you might know all you need; but a program like this lets you know there is always more to learn.

    We really appreciated Lion Artrelle for coming clear from Richmond area, talking with us and then she had to go back for work that night. Thanks so much.

    Tab, tabs, everywhere

    One of the very great things to do as a Lion is to help others. In keeping with this philosophy, Lion Bob Jenks is collecting can tabs. So if you open a can of pop, a can of soup or even a can of pet food, be sure to save the tab on top of the lid and when you have a number of them, give to Lion Bob.

    All tabs are being donated to the Ronald McDonald house in Roanoke where they turn them in for money to help the kids and families at the Ronald McDonald house. Keep on saving them. Here is a picture of just a small portion of the total tabs already donated.

    Delivering Toys

    Thanks to Lions Paula, Lee. Jeff and Bill for delivering toys to the Domestic Violence Shelter and Jubilee Family Center

    This is such an important way to help our community.

    Also thanks to Lion Lee for taking the pictures and sending them to me so I could put on the web.

    Help The Toy Collection

    The Brookville-Timberlake Lions Club has received its first donations for our 2017 toy collection. The toy collection is an on-going club project and we are in our 2nd year of this project. Last year we collected enough toys to serve 7 agencies including Gleaning For the World, Jubilee Center, The Boys and Girls Club, Salvation Army Shelter, The Angel Tree, and the Marines. This year we are also hoping to serve some group homes and adult agencies.

    We need both new and gently used toys for this project. Please consider making a ‘Christmas in July’ (or August or September) donation by purchasing an educational toy. Walmart, Toys Are Us, and other local stores carry many reasonable priced education toys. Please let grandchildren, neighbors, local scout troops, and members of your church know that we are collection toys for distribution by our Lions Club. Look around your house – Do you have family movies, a baseball glove, a badminton set, binoculars, books (books on animals, places in the world, computers, etc.) that you no longer need and would like to donate to a good cause? These items do not need to be new and I would be glad to do the cleaning. Toys can be brought to our Lions Club meetings, dropped at my house, or I can arrange to pick them up.

    Thank you for all the help given by all of you with the toy collection for 2016. Thank you Lions for your generous help again this year.

  • How Do You Join Lions?

    Lions Club Membership is by Invitation Only. If you know someone in a Lions Club, tell them that you are interested in becoming a member, and ask what you should do.

    The Lions Member should invite you to a dinner meeting of the Club, where you can meet the members, and have a free meal. If you are still interested in joining, your Lion friend will provide you with an application to be filled out.

    When the application is filled out, give it back to your Lion friend, and he will sponsor you as a member. The application is given to the Board of Directors for approval, and that's it.

    You will receive Lions Orientation, and then be inducted into membership. If you don't have any Lion friends that you know of, call:


    Leave a message, and someone will call you back to talk to you about Lions.
