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.

Brazoria’s Celebrate America Lives On

The community is grateful for the 25 years of the Brazoria First Assembly church and Pastor Dale Frankum’s July 4 presentation of Celebrate America, and delighted that the Brazoria Lions Club has taken over the reins of the 2019 event.

Over the years, Celebrate America and the largest fireworks display in the county had become Brazoria’s well-received calling card drawing people from miles around. Losing this event, would be catastrophic. But the coordination and expense to produce this event is overwhelming at best.

Celebrate America will again fill the skies with fireworks and the hearts of the community with pride on July 6, 2019. The Brazoria Lions Club was looking for another community project and unanimously voted to continue staging this well-loved event. Celebrate America will utilize Barrow Elementary’ s grounds as in the past, continuing this prominent project.

The Brazoria Lions Club is working with sponsors to help defray the cost so that the event can continue with the success it has had in past years. Celebrate America will continue to be offered to the public for no charge.

Sponsors are needed to help underwrite this endeavor and are currently being solicited. For more information or to help sponsor the event contact:

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 Gloria Powell at 979-964-4028 or the Brazoria Lions at: 979-798-4444.

Join your local Lions Club. “We Serve.”
