Big Foot Lions Club
The Big Foot Lions Club Lions is associated with the Wisconsin Lions, District 27-A1 and is a member of Lions Club International.
We aim to serve our communities with pride and loyalty. Much of the money we raise is donated back to our schools, parks, and families in need.
The Lions Club is known for working to end preventable blindness worldwide and our Lions participate in a variety of projects locally like vision screenings in our elementary schools as well as transporting eyes for the eye bank.
Our membership is composed of all types of people including educators, bankers, manufacturers, retirees, dentists, optometrists, and care providers.
The Big Foot Lions Club meets monthly to conduct club business and to hear speakers from community groups and the state Lions organization.
Any residents of the greater Fontana-Walworth area who might be interested in joining our club should contact us or ask a current member.
We Are Lions. We Serve.

Wisconsin Lions Club
The Foundation has grown to be the pride and joy of the Lions, Lioness, and Leos of Wisconsin. It is also the envy of the Lions throughout the Country and very much appreciated by the people whose lives have been, or are being, changed by its projects. This was all made possible because Clubs and individuals believe in what the Foundation has to offer and because of the watchful administration of the Board of Directors. The operation of the Foundation is directed by 21 Directors, two from each of the ten districts and one from the Council of Governors. Three Lioness Representatives also serve on committees.
Foundation activities are supported through funds contributed by Lions, Lioness, and Leo Clubs and individual members. Support is also received from private citizens, business and industrial benefactors, and memorial bequests.
