  Welcome to the Garden
​      Ridge​ Lion's Club web site

Since 1917, Lions Clubs have offered people the opportunity to give something back to their communities. The Garden Ridge Lions Club began its commitment to service over 40 years ago in 1973 and continues today by seeking out all forms of community need and developing ways to serve and satisfy those needs. We have the continued focus of meeting the commitment of all Lions adhering to the motto : “WE SERVE”.
​​
The Garden Ridge Lions Charities, Inc. directly supports individual children and families in need with our Thanksgiving and Christmas food baskets and toys at Christmas for children. We also work hand-in-hand with agencies and other non profit organizations. These include Lone Star Lions Eye Bank, Boy's State & Girl's State, Texas Lions Camp Counselor Scholarships, Texas Lions Camp and many other charitable organizations.
​Come and join us....
The Garden Ridge Lions Club is always looking to recruit good men and women with serving hearts and a special passion to help those in need. ​​ The Garden Ridge Lions meeting is the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month 7:00PM at the Garden Ridge Community Center at 9500 Municipal Parkway.
