The Burley Lions Club was established in 1938 and has been working to enhance our community through service ever since. When you become a Lion, you become part of a global network of volunteers working together to make a difference.
Since 1925, hundreds of millions of lives have been changed through the vision-related work of Lions around the world, and today the association is as dedicated as ever to hastening the day when no one should suffer unnecessarily from vision problems. Through eye centers and hospitals, medicines and surgeries, eye glasses and eye banks, Lions are working to end preventable blindness and aid the visually impaired.
The last Saturday of July is a meaningful date in Burley, Idaho. It’s the day of the annual Spudman Triathlon, a full Olympic triathlon featuring a 1.5k swim, 40k bike, and 10k run. Hundreds of volunteers in the community give of their time and talents to make the event possible.
The Burley Lions Club was established 1938 and has been working to enhance our community through service ever since. We are a very active local service club. We provide support to our community through financial contributions and hands on volunteer service projects.
In 1925, Helen Keller addressed the Lions Clubs International Convention in Cedar Point, Ohio and challenged Lions to become "knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness." Since then, we have worked tirelessly to aid the blind and visually impaired.
