People Helping People
Lions Club since 1939
Lions Foundation since 2017
Since 1917, Lions Clubs have offered people the opportunity to give something back to their communities. From involving members in projects as local as cleaning up an area park or as far-reaching as helping bring sight to the blind, Lions clubs have always embraced those committed to building a brighter future for their community.
The Lions Club of Algonquin was Incorporated September 18, 1939. The club raises funds for charitable works through the Algonquin Lions Foundation. None of the funds raised for charity through the foundation are used for any other than charitable purposes.
One of the legacy projects of this Lions Club is the Lions Armstrong Swimming Pool in Algonquin. The Lions Club of Algonquin starting in 1962 raised the money to build the swimming pool. It is the only public swimming pool in Algonquin. After many years of managing and maintaining the swimming pool the facility was donated to the Village of Algonquin. This was necessary to keep the cost of liability insurance for the swimming pool under control.
The pool is home to the Trails of Algonquin Swim Team. The Lions Club provides Lions Club members to provide the labor for the swim meets concession stand when swim meets are hosted at the pool.
