Kerrville, Texas March 3, 2012. Eight members of the Bulverde Lions Club traveled to Kerrville and combined their talents to build a fence at the Texas Lions Camp (TLC). This is the weekend when Bulverde Lions Club members helped prepare the TLC in Kerrville to receive the over 1600 kids with special needs during the summer. TLC provides, without charge, a camp for physically disabled, hearing/vision impaired, and diabetic children from the State of Texas, regardless of race, religion, or national origin. The programs available at the camp are designed to help campers learn to make social adjustments, become more self-confident, and develop a positive self-image. In response to the disabling polio epidemic that swept the country decades ago, the Lions of Texas conceived and constructed the Texas Lions Camp. Pictured here are Bulverde Lions (Left to Right) Jerry Steward, Joe Hamilton, Joel Selko, Bob Tennis, Jose Fernandez, Lewis Kreutler, Red Wanek, and Mark Kirchoff.

On August 19th 2013 prior to the start of the new school year, BLC donated backpacks to deserving children at St Judes Ranch for Children. These new backpacks helped boost the children's self-esteem, confidence and pride.
