https://www.facebook.com/cressonalionsWith the help of strong community support and encouragement the Cressona Lions Club has been able to complete many projects within our community over the past 67 years. In addition, we have also been able to join with millions of Lions in over 200 countries to alleviate preventable blindness and to provide support to victims of both natural and man-made disasters in the United States and around the world.
The Cressona Lions Club has a long history of providing playgrounds for our children and youth and supporting other youth programs in the Cressona area. We support research into eye-related diseases, as well as the Northeast PA Lions Eye Bank. We collect used eyeglasses and make sure that people who need glasses or treatment for sight-threatening conditions are cared for. We support our fire companies and the Leo club at Blue Mountain High School. We also support a scholarship for graduating seniors at Blue Mountain High School, as well as sending juniors to the annual Lions Youth Leadership Seminar. We make sure that residents have a good meal at Christmas.
We work with the Friedensburg Fire Company and the Wayne Township Lions Club to provide a Red Cross Blood Drive bi-monthly. We partner with the American Legion to provide leadership fro the annual Memorial Day program for Cressona. We provide a reading program at the Cressona Elementary School.
