About Us

HELPING SERVE OUR COMMUNITY

The Woodlake Lions Club was founded in 1948, beginning their longstanding tradition of serving the community of Woodlake. The local club is comprised of local businessmen, farmers and ranchers, law enforcement personnel, and other professionals, who all donate their time, resources and hard work to maintain “America’s Most Beautiful Rodeo Grounds.” The Woodlake Lions Club is proud to assist local organizations, schools and charities, as well as help fund special projects within Woodlake. Through the Club’s premier and largest fundraising event, the Woodlake Lions Rodeo, a substantial amount of money is contributed back to the community benefiting local charity causes and educational scholarships for local students.

In 2019, the Woodlake Lions Club contributed over $50,000 to local community programs, projects and scholarships!
