Meetings

The Holt Lions Club provides service to the citizens of Delhi Township, the nation and the world in many different ways.

Lions Service Projects can go to benefiting individuals and the community in many different ways.  Some of the local, national and International project are listed below.

Used Eyeglass Collections - Lions throughout the country and in the Holt/Delhi area collect glasses no longer needed and then recycle them in a unique way.  Used eyeglasses cannot reused in the United States, but Lions collect them, sort them, repair if they can and take them overseas to many different counties where they are distributed free of charge to people who could not otherwise afford them.  Holt Lions have gone on many "Eyeglass Missions" around the world.  The cost of the trip and their expenses are paid by the individual not the Lions Club.  The Holt Lions has even been the sponsor of a series of "Eyeglass Missions" to Latvia.

Eyeglasses - Lions International and local Lions Clubs have been involved in sight issues since Helen Keller challenged them to become "Knight of the Blind" in 1925.  The Holt Lions can assist people from the Delhi township area in getting eye exams and glasses when they meet the needs tests and they may have to pay a small co-pay.  Contact the Eyeglass Chairperson show on the "Contact Us" page of this Website.

Holt Community Kids Day - The Holt Lions in cooperation with the Delhi Township Parks and Recreation Department, provide in early June every year a fun day for kids and their families.  This event is free admission to all.  Activities include games of many types, blowup toys, rides, dunk tank, clowns, balloons, face painting and elephant ride.  Free lunches, popcorn and snow cones are provided to all.  There are many small prizes all day long and a give away of 12 or more bicycles at the end the day.  A  fun time is had by all.

Holt Lions Student Athletic Award - At a special awards meeting every first Thursday of June for the past 40 plus years the Holt Lions have had the coach of each sport at Holt High School recognize a graduating senior who exemplifies the best in a student athlete.  Not the top scorer or leading rusher but the student that the coach wants to recognize for hard work, support of the sport and all around efforts to help the team.  This award has been referred to by the Holt Athletic Director as the "highest honor that a coach can award". 

H.O.L.T Scholarships - The Holt Lions club participates in the H.O.L.T. scholarships by making a generous donation to help assist a Holt area student go on from high school to college.
