The Lions club of Taylors Lakes was formed in 2010 under the guidance and support of Essendon Lions Club.
Our formal Charter was approved on 22nd June 2010, and the Charter Night celebration was held on November 19 2010 at the Starlight Centre, Taylors Lakes Hotel.
We serve our community with strength and purpose
Through a highly visible approach, Taylors Lakes Lions Club works to achieve common goals supporting community based projects and raising funds for our community (and beyond), with an attitude of fun, enjoyment and comradery. We seek partnerships with others to enable and enhance our work and to give our work further strength and purpose.

Lions Clubs are part of community life, in the cities and in the country. Clubs are easily identified by their distinctive Logo, the trademark of our International Association, and the 'We Serve'; motto.
Lions Australia is part of an international association, filled with people who are joined by the common desire to make their communities better, by using their creativity, enthusiasm and energy.
Membership is open to all people of the community in good standing.
