The Easley Lions Club's goal is to promote sight conservation in the Easley community. We are proud of the fact that we are citizens assisting local people who are in need of eye exams and eyeglasses. The Easley Lions Club organizes a variety of events throughout the year to raise funds for these services. We always have Brooms to sell at the Farmers Market or Walmart and Lions Candy to distribute.
Annually, we hold a Pancake Breakfast at Applebee's' Restaurant. Every other year we hold a Huge Yard Sale at the First Baptist Church in Easley. We have joined the world of runners with the Easley Firecracker Frolic 5K. We also collect used glasses and hearing aids.
Not all of our activities are fundraisers, though. We also, as a club, participate in Meals on Wheels and SHINE (a local program for feeding the hungry). We collect magazines to donate to our local hospital.
A catered meal from Taste of Distinction is served at each meeting. Our meetings usually include a special speaker whose topics can vary from local issues and concerns to international and global interests.
Our Lions Club takes seriously the charge given to us by Helen Keller to serve, and most importantly, to serve those with sight problems.
