The Jackson Lions Club proudly welcomes you to our website! We have served the community and our world for many decades, and our tradition continues today.
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. Please visit our Why We Serve page for more information about how the Lions came to be, and other information about our organization.
Here is where you'll find the latest information on our Club's many events and efforts such as Dandelion Days, (including the (printable D-Days application form), our 3rd of July Fireworks Spectacular and more. You can find more detailed info on our events and activities on our "Our Programs" page.
Sept. 14, 2015 - Board members of the Jackson Lions Club are proud to present a check in the amount of $10,800 to the Butte Fire Disaster Fund, managed by the Amador Community Foundation (ACF). Jackson Lions Club President Robert Trudgen (left center) presented ACF President Pat Crew with the check. (Pictured from left to right: ACF Executive Director Kathleen Harmon, Lions Secretary Dave Richards, Doug Smallfield, Mike Presson, Rich Lockwood, Craig Murphy, Jon Luy and Bart Gilman.)
Other groups and individuals are encouraged to do the same, as ACF has the experienced staff to properly administer the task of directing relief to where it is most needed. ACF has confirmed there will be NO administrative fee for this fund. County boundaries do not apply for this fund, so even though this is an Amador organization, those folks in Calaveras in need will be eligible for help. Don't hesitate, donate today!
The Jackson Lions Club was proud to present and host its first Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) Rodeo Sept. 13 and 14, 2014, at the Amador County Fairgrounds.
"We had to dream big," said rodeo spokesperson Todd Riebe. "The Lions motto is 'We Serve.' Every year, we raise more than $100,000 and give it all back to the community, yet it is not enough. The needs of our community have grown greater than our Club's capacity to meet them."
The Lions knew they had to develop something with the potential of being a major fundraising project in years to come. This event is the biggest undertaking the Club has had in 30 years.
Camille Sobon was crowned 2014 Jackson Lions Rodeo Queen during a ceremony held May 24 at Evalynn Bishop Hall in Ione, Calif.
"I am speechless right now," Sobon said after the ceremony. "It was such an honor to be named Jackson Lions Rodeo Queen. I have a lot of pride in Amador County as well as the other contestants I competed against today. I've worked really hard with my horse, and I gave it my all and I'm just thrilled with the results."
