Hallettsville Lions Club
The Hallettsville Lions have been part of your community since 1941. Our club is chartered through Lions Club International, which is the world's largest service organization. When asked who or what are the Lions, we have the simplest and most complete answer; we make as much money as we possibly can to give back first, to this community and second, to people all over the world. This means that children with vision impairments will be given sight and that people with other disabilities will be able to participate in our community, and in general, will better the living conditions of those less fortunate than ourselves. As a group of caring adults with the inspiration to help others we band together and with God's help we can make some miracles happen.
No child in this part of Lavaca County, if they have correctable vision has to go to school unable to see. If their families are not able to bear the cost of the eye exam and the purchase of the glasses, the Lions Club is ready with this funding. Often, we receive feedback from when we have touched the lives of these children.
The Hallettsville Lions have sent many of the area's kids to the "Texas Lions Camp" for children with physical disabilities and diabetes. Most of these kids would never have otherwise been ble to go to camp, but the Lions Camp is suited to their needs.
Helen Keller challenged the Lions Club many years ago to help the blind people of this world. Maybe you know someone who has received a cornea transplant from the Lions Eye Bank or maybe you know someone who uses a a guide dog that was furnished by the Lions Leader Dogs for the Blind. If you have been in this area for any time at all, you should know at least one of the recipients of the college scholarships that the Hallettsville Lions Club gives.
The 1st and 3rd Monday of each month at 12:05pm, the Hallettsville Lions Club meets for lunch and a short meeting. The meeting is held at the Jalisco's Mexican Restaurant in Hallettsville. Our meetings start with a Prayer for our souls and the Pledge of Allegiance from our hearts.
Currently your Hallettsville Lions Club is made up of just over 33 members. We work hard, but we also have a lot of fun. Would you please take this invitation to come to one of our meetings. If you prefer to contact one of our members that you know and have them sponsor you, please call them and let them get you started in Lionism.
Thank You, the Hallettsville Lions Club
