Welcome to the Website of a Founder Club of Lionism
Welcome. My name is Mike Hamby. I am proud to be the 96th President of the Temple Founder Lions Club. For nearly a century this club has supported the communities in and around Bell County. "Service First" is our motto. "We Serve" is the credo of Lions worldwide.
Identifying and responding to the needs of the community is our main goal. This is done through our foundation, Temple Lions Club Parks and Charities. We have assisted with, Lions Junction Water Park, Lion Sam Farrow Amphitheater, Central Texas Childrens Center, the Bell County Youth Fair, Ronald McDonald House and Children with Special Needs Network, to name a few. The crown jewel of our club is the Texas Lions Camp in Kerrville. This is a summer camp for diabetic and disabled kids. The children often say, "this is the one place and the one time of the year where we feel normal". A trip to the camp for the awards ceremony is a life changing experience.
We support these charities through our fund raising events: the Reverse Raffle held every January, The Lions Follies annual show in March, a Golf Tournament in May, a lasagna supper in August and several others throughout the year.
If you are new to the area I encourage you to visit one of our Wednesday noon meetings. It's a great opportunity to meet and visit with some of finest people I know. If you don't know one of our members, I would be honored to have you as my guest. See our "Contact Us" section for more information. Again, welcome. If community service is important to you, then you already know the great rewards of participation. Come join us.Mike Hamby
