One of Dublin’s hardest working service organizations is the Lions Club. Chartered in December 1952 with 22 men signing the original document of membership and organization, Dublin’s Lions have served the community for almost 60 years.
For many of those years the club has worked closely with Dublin ISD to provide free eye exams and glasses for youngsters with financial need. Lions also give generously to the Lions Club Camp located in Kerrville.
The camp is a residential facility for children with physical disabilities, diabetes and cancer. This past summer four local youngsters spent a week at this camp free of charge to their families, courtesy of the local Lions Club.
Each year for the annual Dr. Pepper birthday celebration in June, the local club sponsors the 10-2-4k runs. This event has grown enormously and people from all over the state attend each year.
Runners from other parts of the country and even some international runners have been a part of this Lions’ fundraiser.
The Lions are a small group, but very powerful and hardworking. About 15 strong, they serve Dublin throughout the year. This is a family organization and wives work alongside husbands at community events.
With 45,000 clubs and 1.35 million members, Lions Club International is the world’s largest service club organization. Membership is open to everyone in the community.
The Lions Club meets each Tuesday at 7AM at the Dairy Queen. They are now getting ready for their annual mop and boom sale. All products in this sale are made by the Caravan for the Blind and are of excellent quality.
Be ready to support the Dublin Lions by purchasing mops, brooms, and other household items on September 30 from 8AM-5PM at the old Texaco station on Patrick Street between the post office and David’s.
This has been the broom sale site for many years. Come out and support the Dublin Lions Club. It is a great group that does enormous good in the community.
