Welcome to the Sandy Spring Lions Club's website! For more than 60 years, we've proudly served our community by doing things like:

  • holding a variety of fundraisers annually and giving all the proceeds back to the community, primarily through scholarships and donations to other non-profit organizations;
  • performing free vision and hearing screenings at preschools and local events;
  • physically helping other service organizations with their fundraisers;
  • supporting the Johns Hopkins Wilmer Eye Institute;
  • participating in the Lions Leader Dog Program;
  • maintaining our namesake, the Sandy Spring; and,
  • keeping Ednor Road free of trash through the Adopt-a-Road program.
