At the Local
Chartered in 1934, we are one of the
most active civic service organizations in our community,
and we have enjoyed a proud legacy of service, not only locally, but around the state as well.
The Ellijay Lions Club sponsor various service activities, including the annual
Veterans Day Celebration, Special Friends,
White Christmas, eye screenings, and diabetes screenings. Our local White Christmas project
provides Christmas presents for over 300 children in Gilmer County each year. We also participate
in a very active recycling program, collecting used eyeglasses, hearing aids, and cellphones, which
are sent to the Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation.
Some of our fundraising efforts include the County Fair, Apple Pageant, Georgia Apple Festival,
Bucket Brigades to benefit the White Christmas Program and a Bucket Brigade to Benefit the Georgia Lions Lighthouse Eye Surgery Program.
At the State Level
The Ellijay Lions Club also support the statewide Lions projects,
which include the Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation,
the Georgia Lions Camp for the Blind, and the Athens Unit of Recordings for the Blind and Dyslexic. In addition,
we contribute regularly to the Lions Clubs International Foundation, the grant-making arm of our Association.
At the International Level
Lions are an international network of 1.3 million men and
women in 205 countries and geographic areas who work together to answer the needs that challenge communities around the world.
