The Centre Lions Club
Our 79th Year of Making a Difference!
The Centre Lions Club was chartered February 25, 1938 by a group of individuals who wanted to help their community.
When the club was started, they were following the lead of a young lady named Helen Keller, who challenged the Lions in 1925 to be “knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness”. And since 1938, the Centre Lions have been “Making a Difference” in Centre, in the surrounding communities, in the county and the world for the last 79 years!
While sight is the passion of the Centre Lions Club, we have the privilege of helping our high school seniors with scholarships. We provide high school juniors and seniors with opportunites to attend our annual John L. Ellis, Sr. Youth Leadership Forum. We really have a great time taking ten children, who might otherwise go without, for a Christmas shopping event in conjunction with the Nettie King Brown Christmas Clearinghouse, Inc. Those are just a few of the good deeds we have the pleasure of doing.
What really makes us beam with pride is our association with the generous businesses and individuals who help sponsor our Annual Radio Day and Pancake Day fundraisers – you know who you are! These folks are the real hero’s of Cherokee County who partner with us to make a difference!
So, our question to you is: Why aren’t you a Lion? We are having a membership drive this fall and it is open to men and women who are interested in helping others and making a difference! Lion membership is by invitation only!
Come, join the Centre Alabama Lions Club – “We Serve”.
If you are interested in becoming a Lion, just ask one of our Lion members or call me 256/557-1808 and get signed up today!
