The Belmont Lions Club became a charter member in 1948 as the 100th Massachusetts Lions Club. Since this time, we have proudly embraced the mission of serving the community, and also working diligently to support the challenge bestowed on the Lions by Helen Keller to support to aid the blind and visually impaired.
Our clubhouse is a unique building located next to the Belmont Center train stop of the MBTA commuter rail. Our building is a central point for our community and where we host our annual tree and flower sales. The building itself was registered as a National Historic Building in 1998. Our members take great pride in its upkeep since taking ownership in 1955.
In addition to providing support for many Belmont organizations, we also support organizations in the greater community such as Carroll Center for the Blind, Perkins School for the Blind, Cotting School, Association for Blind Citizens, and many others.

Donate any unused glasses at the Lions Club at One Common St. There is a donation slot in the door - located at the entry at bottom right side of the clubhouse. Donations are refurbished and donated throughout the world.
In 1957 we sold our first Christmas trees. The balsam firs we sell have been sourced from the same tree farm in Nova Scotia since we began. It is a holiday tradition that has become a highlight of the holiday season.
From scholarships for Belmont High School seniors to financial support of many town-based non-profits, we want to help. You can help by participating in our events and programs. Check back for the latest on upcoming events.
