2016/2017 Brazoria Lions Officers & Board Members

The Brazoria Lions Club was chartered on November 18, 1947.  Our motto is "We Serve". We have a number of ongoing projects for those in need in our community such as collecting eyeglasses for recycle, eye examinations & glasses for children & loaning out medical equipment for those who can't afford wheelchairs, beds, etc. as well as sponsoring youth sports & other community help organizations. We also support the Lions Camp for Handicap Children & Children with diabetes in Kerrville, TX. Each year we sponsor campers & help them get there to enjoy the activities. Applications for campers are available in the Forms section.
The Brazoria Lions Club will host a garage sale April 28 & 29, 2017 and an annual "99 Guns Plus A 4-Wheeler Raffle" later this year to raise funds for service projects in the community.
This
garage sale  will be our last so be sure to bring donations by April 26.

Past projects have included the building of a pavillian at the the American Legion park, a pavillian at the Brazoria Heritage Foundation, a walking track at Barrow Elementary, wheel chair ramps, a porch rebulding & a play park near the fire station. A new pavillion for community use has just been built at the Historical Center in honor of Lions who have passed on.

Brazoria Lions Club Vision Screening

Brazoria Lions Club Back to School Vision Screening

The Brazoria Lions Club conducted a free vision screening at the Brazoria Operation Head Start on August 17, 2015 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. A total of 45 vision screenings were conducted and 5 children were identified with vision deficiencies. The purpose of the screening was to determine whether or not vision correction is required.

The equipment used to check vision, is quick, painless and can accurately identify vision problems in a few seconds. At the end of the screening, a print out of the results was given to each of the participants (or parents). Those needing eye correction can take the print out to an eye doctor of their choice.
 
Brazoria Lions Club members (who are not eye doctors) conducting the screening were Gloria Powell, Roy Edwards, Jan Edwards, and President, Frank Pettaway.

The screening is an outgrowth of the Lions International initiative better vision for all. This vision screening is targeted for children ages 6 months – 6 years old because it has been determined that if problems in young eyes can be found soon enough, corrections can be made so that glasses will not be necessary later in life. Though the event is especially targeted for children, people of any age can have the screening done at no charge.

For more information or to schedule a screening, call Lion Ken Barganier at: 979-236-1967, Lion Gloria Powell at 979-964-4028 or the Brazoria Lions at: 979-798-4444.

Brazoria Lions Club Donates to PET Cart Project

The Brazoria Lions Club representative, Scotty McCaskill, travelled to Mission, Texas December 8, 2014 to present the Personal Energy Transportation (PET) Project Manager, Stan Marley with a check for $3,000.00 to be used to build PET carts.

The Personal Energy Transportation (PET) carts, built on sturdy wood/steel frames, give mobility to people who are unable to walk due to disability, impairment, or injury and are designed to function in the world’s most remote regions. The carts are propelled by a hand-crank and are fitted with puncture-proof tires.

Each PET, which gives impaired underprivileged persons a chance to make a living, cost approximately $300.00 to make. The Brazoria Lions Club’s contribution to the PET cart project will pay for 10 PET carts to be built – and change 10 lives for the better.

Join your local Lions Club. For more information call Lion Scotty McCaskill at 979-798-7069.

For the latest news go to Brazoria Lions Club Facebook

Hi, fellow Lions. Just wanted to draw your attention to Page 50 of the current Lion magazine (we got ours in the mail yesterday) in the Club Activities section. Go to page 50, last article on the center column – and there is the Brazoria Lions Club with the PET project. They had expressed interest in the article about 6 months ago, but I thought they had forgotten about us. But… there it was. Correct me if I am wrong, but I think this is the first time that the Brazoria Lions Club has ever made Lion Magazine! They expressed interest in two other of our projects as well – the vision screening and the garage sale for the Brazoria Community Library, so keep looking – we might show up again! Please share this information with anyone you choose. We made the Lion Big Time, guys! It’s a red letter day for us!

Jan Edwards
