When Lions hear the call to action
they are there to respond.
Torrington Lions Club
Since 1917 Lions have come together for the benefit of the community. Today, we stand with 1.4 million members in 210 countries.
Who We Are
To the world there is an understanding that Lions Club International stands for helping mankind. For the individual the question is much more personal. For each member brings to the Club their own unique compassion and abilities for the betterment of mankind. Membership offers many ways to fulfill your personal mission as a member.
All members are offered opportunities to participate in various projects in their community and/or work on funding projects that span the globe. Members can also present their own project vision for the support of the club.
The Lions Club is proud to bring some of the most enjoyed events to the Torrington community. Events like the Annual Golf Tournament, Main Street Car Show, Trunk n’ Treat, Holiday Gift Fair, and Touch-A-Truck exist through the efforts of Lions Club members. And, because we are Lions… 100% of the proceeds go back into the community!
