Serving Our Community


The Lions Club of Oyster Bay was chartered in 1948. We are a non-denominational group of men and women of all ages, from all walks of life, brought together in the common interest of serving our community in the spirit of Lionism.


Lions Clubs International is the world's largest and most active organization dedicated to community service. Nearly 1.4 million Lions members in 190 countries and geographic areas answer the needs that challenge the communities of the world. Lions tackle tough problems like blindness, drug abuse prevention and diabetes awareness. Our motto is "We Serve".


Guide Dogs for the Blind, Scholarships for Local High Schools, Fishing Tournament for the Physically Challenged, Eye care & eye glasses for the needy, Long Island Eye Bank, Lions Journey for Sight Walk, Habitat for Humanity, Doubleday Babcock Senior Center, Visions Camp for the Blind, Boys & Girls Club - OBEN, Lions Diabetes Education Center, CSAC, Celia Flower Pantry, Visiting Nurse of Oyster Bay, Camp Sunshine, Diabetes Education Summer School, and more!

  • Create and foster a spirit of understanding among the peoples of the world.

    Lions Clubs bring people together...for friendships...for a better tomorrow.

    We sponsored a Habitat for Humanity home on Long Island:

    We sponsor guide dogs for the blind. This is Teddy, named for Oyster Bay's most famous resident - Teddy Roosevelt, at her "graduation" on August 15th, 2005, with her new owner - Amanda Shirley. In 2007, we sponsored another guide dog, who is currently in training.
