The McGregor Lions were chartered November 9, 1965 and received their charter
on January 22, 1966 at a party held at Kare Phree Pines (now known as Big Sandy Lodge). There were originally
44 Charter members.
Over the past 56 years, our club has planned and conducted a variety of
community and humanitarian projects. The annual Athletic and Academic Banquet to honor local school athletes
and scholars has been a major project almost since our beginning. Other equally important projects are Sight
Conservation, Hearing, Diabetes Awareness, Citizenship, Educational, Environmental, Recreational, International and
Social Services, Youth Exchange, and Drug Awareness.
The McGregor Lions welcome all residents who are of legal majority, good moral
character, and good reputation who wish to participate in an organization dedicated to community service while
providing a social environment. We are backed by the world's largest service organization, Lions Club
International, and are one of around 70 clubs in Lions Multiple District 5M-9 which stretches across central
Minnesota from McGregor to Breckenridge on the North Dakota border.
