What We Do

Since 1975, the Monticello Lions Club has been a driving force in our community.  We have been at the forefront of humanitarian efforts locally and have partnered with other amazing volunteer organizations to improve the lives of those around us and far beyond.


Our Mission

To leave our community and our world in a better place than how we found it, each and every day.  To give of our time, energy, and talents to improve the lives of those who could use the help.  To always put others' needs before our own in the name of service.

Together, there are no limts to what we as Lions can achieve,
there are no limits to our willingness to help others in need,
and there are no limits to our dedication to serve.
