Message from the president
Welcome from the club president.


Welcome to the website for the Franklin Lions Club. Lions are an international network of 1.3 million men and women in 200 countries and geographic areas who work together to answer the needs that challenge communities around the world.

Known for working to end preventable blindness, Lions participate in a vast variety of projects important to their communities. These projects range from cleaning up local parks to providing supplies to victims of natural disasters.

Beginning in 1917, the association of Lions clubs has provided millions of people with the opportunity to give something back to their communities.

The Franklin Lions Club is the oldest civic club in Franklin. It provides its members with an opportunity to serve their community and its citizens in meaningful ways. At the same time members have the opportunity to share the good fellowship of an active group of community leaders. The tabs in the menu to the left identify our membership and detail many of our activities.

Come and visit us at any time. You will be welcome. For more information about joining a Lions club in the area, please call Joy Chapman at 243-7796.
