Lions build relationships with their communities, with one another and with the people they serve. And, as a result, everyone’s life is improved!

The Lions Club of Madison Mississippi is a service organization of people from – no, not just Madison the City or the County – but from all over the Central Mississippi area.

This is the logo and emblem of Lions Clubs.
Whenever you see this emblem, you will know that Lions Clubs – our members – are there to serve your community. Not just your local community, which indeed we do, but also communities throughout your state, your nation, and the entire world.
If you’re not already a member, you should join today.
The Lions Club of Madison is involved in numerous different service projects to our communities. You can read more about these projects on our ABOUT page.
The photo at the left is of our 2018 “Heart of a Lion” award winner, Mr. Ken Hackman. We give this award each year to the person – NOT a member of the Lions Club – who most exemplifies the tradition of service to the community we aim to foster.
We are a service organization. We provide the organization and structure to support community improvements in the local community, in the state, in the nation, and worldwide.
These efforts include active involvement in children’s eye screening, collecting used eyeglasses to recondition and redistribute to those in need, disaster relief efforts at the state, national, and international levels, supporting diabetes research through contributions to the Diabetes Foundation, and through the state Lions Clubs we support the high school all-state honor band every year.
In our twice monthly local club meetings, we spend about 20 minutes organizing and reporting on our community efforts, and we have an always-fascinating guest speaker on any of a wide range of issues.
You are welcome to attend any of our meetings, with no obligation or cost, to check out whether the Lions Club of Madison is something in which you might like to be involved.
