About the Burleson Lions Club
The Burleson Lions Club was founded in 1945. It is one of over 46,600 clubs in Lions Clubs International and is a member of District 2-E2 in Texas. This is the 70th year that the Lions members have served the Burleson community. Club meetings are at 11:45 a.m. on the second and fourth Wednesdays of most months at First United Methodist Church, 590 NE McAlister Rd.
The motto of the Burleson Lions Club is "We Serve." The Burleson Lions Club encourages sight conservation and provides exams and eyeglasses for those who cannot afford them. There are also collection points throughout Burleson to collect used eyeglasses which are sent to other countries. There, the used eyeglasses are matched to people who need eyeglasses.
The Burleson Lions Club wholeheartedly supports the Texas Lions Camp in Kerrville, TX, and the Texas Lions Foundation.
Members of the Burleson Lions Club are active in the community, volunteering for The Annual Independence Day Parade, through our Chef's Kitchen project and at White Cane Days in April and October which support the Lions Organ & Eye Bank for organ transplants and by ringing the bells for The Salvation Army at Christmas and finally many of our members volunteer as drivers to deliver Meals on Wheels to eligible senior citizens in the Burleson area.
We are completely non-sectarian, and do not endorse or support any political candidate or religion.
