  • Lions Kathi Hlavac and Dorie Cundari led a tremendous Community Garden Clean-up event on Saturday, April 30.

  • Lions Kathi, Dorie, Robin Montgomery, Louise Johnson, Dan Melillo, Sue Slater, Jim Diezemann, Jeff Tanz, John Mackiewicz, and Jim Ondak joined together with a good number of Community Gardeners to do a great job getting the garden ready for the upcoming growing season.
  • We did an incredible amount of weed paper placing, garden path mulching, tree trimming, bush pruning, raking, weed pulling, and brush hauling to get the garden's 106 plots in great shape.
  • We were nourished with donuts, cookies, and an ample supply of water. The only thing missing was ibruprofen!  wink

The Lions Club is the world’s largest international service organization. Members have been working tirelessly since the early part of the 20th century to help restore and improve sight and hearing to millions of people. Here in Brookfield, our members are very active in programs that increase access to eye care and hearing services for those in need.

We collect used eyeglasses, help raise guide dog puppies, and organize vision screenings. Our presence in the community is widespread - you'll find us leading youth outreach programs, organizing road races and blood drives, and championing the town's annual Memorial Day parade.  

100% of funds raised by the Brookfield Lions Club are used to benefit charities and local community programs. No overhead is ever deducted. The generosity of our friends and neighbors makes these donations and other service programs possible, and we are grateful for their support.
