The Troy Lions Club is part of the world’s largest service organization. Nearly 1.35 million members worldwide carry on the tradition of Lionism in more than 207 countries and geographic areas. Our 33 members are community leaders, involved citizens and neighbors who are serious about their commitment to humanitarian service, but have FUN along the way.
The Troy Lions share this spirit and we have dedicated ourselves to making our community and the world a better place. Our efforts extend beyond the boundaries of Troy, Idaho. It’s highly probable that a donation from the Troy Lions to the Lions Club International Foundation, the charitable arm, has helped someone you know. Through the Lions’ core programs of disaster relief, sight preservation and restoration, health screening, hearing preservation and guide dog training, the Lions have helped hundreds of thousands of people return to productive lives.
The true measure of a service club is its benefits to the community. Troy Lions take an active role in improving the Troy area through multiple beneficiaries. Keeping with the Lions mandate, we fund corneal transplants and hearing aids, grant academic scholarships, enable youth sports, provide disaster relief and support the local food and clothing bank.
The Troy Lions Club supports community activities and organizations. We help improve the quality of life for people in Troy, Latah County, surrounding communities, the United States and the world. It’s through the action of service clubs that local and regional needs are met quickly and efficiently. This reduces burdens on public resources and generates civic pride in the process. Every dollar from a service club arguably displaces MANY tax dollars.
The Troy Lions also sponsor Troy Old Timers’ Day, our annual community celebration, make improvements to park facilities, support training of emergency medical technicians, sponsor reading programs and much more.
Our biggest asset is the Troy Lions Community Community Center. This wonderful building on Main Street, in the center of town, is home to the Troy Lions. It serves as much more, providing a place for the community to meet, vote, celebrate, remember, dance and enjoy life. Many times the Troy Lions donate use of the Community Center at a reduced or no cost. Interested in renting the Troy Lions Community Center? Click here to take a look and learn more.
The Troy Lions Club Incorporated is a nonprofit corporation, chartered in 1967 by the Lions Club International, and originally incorporated in Idaho in 1968. The club has been in continuous existence since its original charter.
