In 2017, we are celebrating our 100th year of service to those in need. Whenever a Lions Club gets together, problems get smaller and communities get better.

We are a group of service-minded men and women who are interested in improving Beamsville and the Town of Lincoln. We are very diverse in our ages, family status, ethnic backgrounds, religions and careers. We are working, retired and our many projects allow for involvement when you have time you can contribute.
