Senior Boys Night

This tradition has been in place for many decades (about 50 years!):  The senior boys are invited to share a meal with the Gresham Lions and hear a little about their future roll in community service.  This photo is of the members of the class of 1980.  Front row: Tom Huntington, Bryan Nietzer, Gary Paiser*, Gordon Wesener, Brian Miller, Chuck Ward, and Joe Hoffman.  Second Row:  Lion President Grant Stoehr, Jim Beyer, Randy Nietzer*, Jay Crowe, John Meirhofer, and Brian Reopelle.  * = current Gresham Lion

Gresham Lion's Scholarship

The first scholarship was awarded about thirty years ago.  The Gresham Lions are strong supporters of the Gresham Commnity School.  They have donated to a wide variety of projects at the school ranging from computer software, public address systems for the gymnasium, playground equipment and  milk for low-income students.  Scholarships to help and encourage students to gain further training and education have been a constant goal of the club.  The scholarship funds have increased five-fold and a committee selects the awardees from many applicants.
