This year as we celebrate 70 years of service to the Merrillville community we hope and will strive to build on our past and improve service to our community, state, nation and world.

Since 1946 we have been part of the Merrillville community.  The Lions are men and women who volunteer thier time to conduct service projects for humanitarian causes in their local and world communities.  Through their service and fund raising projects the Lions strive to help those in need wherever the need exists.

A NOTE FROM OUR PRESIDENT - OUR ACTIVITIES IN 2017

To my fellow LIONS.  

With our formal meetings only taking place monthly and having few active members at times it is easy to think that not much is happening.   The Truth is that the Merrillville LIONS is Changing Lives every day.  

Candy Mints. 

This basic project has trays that any individual can pick up a role of candy for 50 cents.  it is on an honor system and by my experience most individuals are honest and give at least the requested amount.  We do make money on this project and as an additional benefit improve awareness that we are in Merrillville. 

Recently we did several things.

  • collected eyeglasses for re-use  (will help others out side of the united states)paid for eyeglasses for 5-6 individuals.  

  • In process for several others. 

  • Health Event at Town Center  Thank you to the volunteer nursing students. 

  • Eye Screening 

  • Weight

  • Blood Pressure

  • Blood glucose check  (thank you to VITOS pharmacy)
