Lyons for a Better Neighborhood was formed in the Fall of 2016 by four concerned citizens and business owners to raise funds for Christmas Lights on the town center and to bring the businesses and residents together to increase the overall feel of a neighborly community.
Since its inception more residents of the community have stepped forward to become involved and expand from this one project. With the increased interest the organization obtained 501c3 status in the Fall of 2019. Their mission is to enrich the community by empowering individuals and developing a welcoming environment. They strive to provide charitable contributions, community and park improvements and other community service projects to better their neighborhood.
New ideas and members are always welcome!
