Celebrating 60 years of service, with over 30 active members, the Trimble Lions Club prides itself on its conduct, character and reputation for being a service club that puts others first. All members volunteer their time, money and talents to meet the needs around them. Not only in the area of providing free eye exams and eyewear to those in need, but also building relationships with people.

"We Serve" is the motto of Lions Club International and those two simple words speak volumes to those who have been on the receiving end of service by Lions worldwide and in our own community. And for 60 years, the Trimble Lions Club has been doing exactly that. With an eyeglasses recycling program, providing free eye exams and eyewear, aiding those in need after natural disasters, extending the gift of giving to a family in need each Christmas season, honoring a Dyer County High School Leo each year with a $1,000 scholarship and sponsoring the Leo Club at Dyer County High School; the Trimble Lions Club truly demonstrates and carries out what it means to be a "Lion".

On the third Monday of every month, the Trimble Lions gather together at the Trimble Community Center to plan events and discuss how they can work together as a whole to improve the lives of many in not only Trimble, but the entire county in which we live. The Trimble Lions dedicate their services to the people of Dyer County.
