Dear Bellville Lions
It is a humbling honor to serve the Bellville Lions Club as your president for the 2015-2016 Lions year. Marie and I are relative new comers to the Bellville area and we thank you for your trust for allowing me to hold this important position with the Bellville Lions Club.
We had a great year for 2014-2015 and I’d like to say a big “Thank You” to immediate past president Jess Koy and his board of directors for passing on a healthy club to this current year. As a past District Treasurer under PDG Ernie Koy, I unfortunately saw some clubs that were not in good shape.
Being the great club we are, there are many opportunities for us to serve our community in meaningful ways for meaningful positive differences. Our board and I will be reviewing new ways to serve our neighbors. I look forward to seeing our fundraisers continue to do well. I look forward to working with our community leaders, the local charitable organizations, our current board of directors, and all our club’s members.
Thank you again for your trust.

Bellville Lions Club 75th Anniversary: We are celebrating 75 years of serving this year and what a special thing to be a part of. The Bellville Lions Club has been looking forward to this momentous occasion for a while now and we can't wait to celebrate! We are going to host a gathering to honor the club and the tentative date is November 19, 2015. This is one you won't want to miss!!!
DEN Night- Annual DEN Night date has been set for February 27, 2016 so clear your calendars! This year will be a Mardi Gras themed night of dinner, drinks, and entertainment. The support shown for this fundraiser is always so very humbling to the club and we are hoping this year is the best year yet! Tickets will go on sale in early 2016 so get 'em while they're hot!
Golf Course Signage- The Bellville Lions Club along with the Bellville EDC has recently finalized plans to refurbish the tee box along Highway 36. Fundraiser money was donated to the golf course and we will proudly be displaying a "Welcome to Bellville" sign along with our Lions Club logo and a full sized Brahma Bull! Keep an eye out for it when you are passing by the course, you won't be able to miss it!
