On April 17, 1957, a group of 13 women met at the home of Bess (Mrs. Walter) Oakley to organize a club for women in Big Flats. Their purpose was to “unite women of the community for civic purposes and for the improvement of the Big Flats community”.

The Big Flat’s Women’s Club has been around for over 50 years. During their tenure they have been instrumental in establishing the library. Currently they are working in conjunction with the Big Flats Library Advocates. Over the years their various fundraising activities have funded new traffic signs, supported the Historical Society and contributed to the Community Center building fund.

The Big Flats Lions are men and women dedicated to humanitarian aid, community assistance and promotion of international understanding.

Organized by several civic-minded individuals in February 1970, the club has continued to take pride with much energy and money spent on improving ballparks and playgrounds, housing for the needy and other worthy projects.

Our motto is, “WE SERVE”.
