Many people ask, "What is the Lions Club?", and here's the answer in a nutshell: We are a group of committed and dedicated business people from the greater Jackson, California area who share a common belief: that service to others is a high and worthy calling. And we share this view passionately with Lions Club members all over the world.

March 16-17, 2024 - Dandelion Days - 

The weather was about the best we could have hoped for both days - sunny and perfect temps!  Big crowds and everyone had a great time! There was a line at the kids carnival all day for the rides and the bands in the beer garden were great. Thank you to all the vendors and everyone who came to enjoy the event. Thank you also to those who worked so tirelessly to make this a great event.
