“The Bristol Connecticut Lions Club is one of the oldest clubs in Connecticut, chartered in 1926, and is a member of Lions Clubs International, a global service organization of 1.35 million men and women dedicated to serving their communities. Our membership is composed of all types of people including educators, bankers, manufacturers, retirees, dentists, optometrists, and care providers. The Bristol Lions Club meets twice each month to conduct club business and to hear speakers from community groups and the state Lions organization. All residents of the greater Bristol area are invited to become members and to serve their community through financial support and direct action. Our motto, “”We Serve””, exemplifies our commitment to the betterment of our fellow citizens.   It’s difficult to explain to people exactly what Lions do. After all, we do so much. It’s far easier to explain why we do what we do – we want to give back to the community and make dreams come true. Your community needs you. In fact, it needs more people like you.”
