The Avon Lions Club has been active in the town of Avon, Connecticut since June 18, 1951. The Avon Lions are members of District 23-B, which is one of three Connecticut districts.
Our goal is to serve others in need, especially fundraising to support research for a cure for preventable blindness. We support the Avon Food and Fuel Bank, Gifts of Love; and many town group activities. Vision related support includes Ct Lions Eye Research Foundation; Lions Low Vision Center; Lions International Sight First; the Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation; and individuals in need of vision services. Fundraising to support these activities comes from our annual Harvest Breakfast in November and our Pasta Dinner in May.
We sponsor two active LEO’s clubs at the Avon Middle School and at the Avon High School. Additionally we are active in our District 23-B projects and have had three members serve as District Governor as well as members serving on the District 23-B Cabinet, the Lions Low Vision Center Board and the Lions Advisory Board to the Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation.
New members are welcome!
