Serve with Friends SAIL with the BEST
Officially chartered on December 6, 1973, the Farragut Lions Club has served the people of Knox County
and east Tennessee for 50 years. The original twenty members had the vision and foresight to bring Lionism to the western part of Knox County.
For over I 00 years, Lions Clubs have brought civic-minded people together to improve their communities, support youth programs and lend a helping hand to better the quality of life. Lions raise funds and give their time freely to help the less fortunate.
Since 1925 when Helen Keller challenged the Lions to take up the cause of the visually impaired by becoming leaders in the “crusade against darkness “, the Lions have made sight conservation their main focus. With over 44,000 active clubs and more than 1.3 million members, Lions Club International is the largest service group in the world.
The Farragut Lion’s Club is a service club composed of men and women of all ages working together to improve our world. We make new friendships while serving others.
All money raise d by the Lions from the public is used for community service projects. No funds are used for administrative costs. All Lions members are volunteers.
