THE BIG FLATS LIONS CLUB

The Big Flats Lions are men and women dedicated to humanitarian aid, community assistance and promotion of international understanding.

Organized by several civic-minded individuals in February 1970, the club has continued to take pride with much energy and money spent on improving ballparks and playgrounds, housing for the needy and other worthy projects.
