IntroducingThe Terra Rubra Lions

Terra Rubra means "red earth" in Latin, and refers to the distinctive red soil in northwest Carroll County, Maryland. It's also the name of the estate in nearby Keysville where Francis Scott Key, author of The Star-Spangled Banner, was born in 1779.

The Terra Rubra Lions are a group of your neighbors who have come together to serve our community. Our club was chartered in 1966, and since then we've been offering a wide range of services to Carroll County, including college scholarships, vision assistance, loans of convalescent equipment, youth athletic programs, and much more.

We are proud to serve the rural Carroll and Frederick County communities of Keysville, Keymar, Bruceville, Rocky Ridge, Detour, Ladiesburg, and Middleburg.

The motto of Lions Clubs International is We Serve. At Terra Rubra, service to our neighbors goes hand-in-hand with having a great time!
