Welcome to the Seeley Lions Club
The Seeley Lions Club is part of Lions International, dedicated to serving communities and humanitarian needs.
Our Lions Club is located in Seeley 10 miles north of Hayward, in beautiful northwest Wisconsin. The local community we serve is nestled between the Namekagon River and the Seeley Hills, home of the American Birkebeiner. Our area is a destination for cross country skiers, mountain bikers, fishermen, hikers, snowshoers, ATVers, snowmobilers, and many others who gather here for recreation and events year-round.
Seeley has a rich history, a very involved community, and an active calendar. Our club has more than 35 members. We are active volunteers who devote time and energy to serving and improving our local community. Please see our Projects and Activities for more information. In addition, we support regional and national human service, eyesight, and health care initiatives. We are committed to serving!

Roadside clean-up. Hats off to all of the Seeley Lions Members who pitched in to pick up garbage Wednesday, May 4th, 2022. Thank you, Everyone!
Sawyer County Deputy Nelson (and Oscar) and Deputy Schick began the meeting by explaining the K-9 program used for both narcotics search and apprehension. They further explained the costs of acquiring these special dogs, their upkeep costs, equipment, etc., and the foundation set up to fundraise for the K-9 program. They will have to replace a recently retired dog and another (Oscar) in two years. Oscar demonstrated how well trained he is.
A check for $1000 from the Lions Club was presented to them by Tom Rowley.
