The Beaverton Lions Club was organized in 1944. As a part of Lions International, we are a service organization that has eye care as its principal charitable work. For years the Beaverton Lions have provided eye exams and eyeglasses to Gladwin County residents. We support other Lions’ state and national eye care projects and run our local Project Kid Sight, where we take pictures of young children’s eyes and have them analyzed for potential eye problems. With over 50 members, the Lions Club is Beaverton's only service club organization. All our fundraising and charitable projects are focused only on Gladwin County residents and our local community. In addition to our eye care projects, we award scholarships to local students, have an Adopt-a-Family for Christmas program, assist residents with hearing aids, build community park enhancements and sponsor the local Boy Scout troop and the Leo Club at Beaverton High..
Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with more than 1.4 million members in approximately 46,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world.
