The Madawaska Valley Lions Club is the Valley's biggest service club, a group of community members volunteering our time to improve our community. Established in 1953, we have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for both local and international projects helping others. In just the past 12 months, we have put on the annual Madawaska Valley Santa Claus Parade and a St. Patrick’s Day Dance, and through numerous fundraising efforts has donated thousands of dollars to the St Francis Memorial Hospital, the MV Food Bank, the Valley Manor nursing home, the MV and Area Public Library, several MV District High School projects, and many other well-deserving recipients. The Lions also make donations to provincial, national, and international programs, such as our projects for the blind.
Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with more than 1.4 million members in approximately 46,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world.
