Since January, there are no other clubs in the county that includes the cities of Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg. Tri-County Lions recently provided assistance to an individual in Gatlinburg. The club also provides vision services to regions of Knox and Blount counties in East Tennessee.
In order to efficiently serve such a widespread area, the club is asking for support from more community members, whether by becoming Lions to serve, or by supporting generously our service and fundraising efforts.
