The Tri-Dams Lions Club is driven by a single goal; to do our part in making our local community a better place for all of our residents. Every journey begins with a single step. One act of service, one encouraging word, one gift of generosity is often all it takes to get good things started.
WAYS WE SERVE
We use a hands-on, grassroots approach to address community needs. Our work on the local community center, scholarship and student speaker programs, and our Membership support for charitable programs serving those in need are catalysts for community improvement.
THE BURSON COMMUNITY CENTER
Our Club's primary service effort is to manage the Burson Community Center (aka the old volunteer firehouse). The hall has been rented for many a family gathering, meetings, and celebrations over the years. Projects are currently underway to maintain and update the facility, along with fundraising to enable these efforts. We are very grateful for the generosity of our local businesses and support of our neighbors!
With this initiative, our goal is to provide educational opportunities for new graduates, thereby helping our young people reach their full potential. Please contact us to learn more about how we are reaching out to help the young people in our community.
SUPPORT FOR CANINE COMPANIONS
A portion of every annual Membership in the Tri-Dam Lions supports the Lions Project for Canine Companions, which creates awareness and provides support for Canine Companions®. Canine Companions® is a national organization that provides expertly trained assistance dogs and ongoing support to people with disabilities, free of charge. Because HELP is a four-legged word.
HELP FOR THE HEARING-IMPAIRED
The Tri-Dam Lions supports the Ear of the Lion Foundation, so patients in need of hearing aids can access care. Our Club has sponsored local patients to enable them to hear and communicate better. We also collect used hearing aids, which are sent to a lab to be re-shelled and re-circuited. Contact us to learn more or to donate used devices.
EYE HEALTH SUPPORT
Every Tri-Dam Lions Membership supports the Lions Eye Foundation of California and Nevada, whose mission is to preserve and restore the gift of sight by providing free ophthalmic examinations, operations, and medication to the less fortunate members of our community. Our Club additionally collects used prescription eyewear for refurbishing. Please contact us to learn more and lend your support.
ABOUT THE TRI-DAMS LIONS CLUB
We are driven by a strong sense of community pride and an abundance of love for our community and its members. Chartered by Lions Clubs International on February 6th, 1965, the Tri-Dams Lions Club was formed to inspire and support the local community, with a sincere desire for actions to speak louder than words.
The Tri-Dams Lions Club serves the Burson, Valley Springs and Wallace areas of California (near the three reservoir dams of Camanche, Pardee and New Hogan).
