Community Projects

Safari program. The club sponsors field trips to the New Britain Library and the New Britain Youth Museum for every 3rd grade student in the New Britain school system, serving over 1,000 students per year. For some children, this is their first opportunity to visit these places and some children obtain their 1st library card while they are there.

The club also provides eye exams and eyeglasses to needy children in the school system.

During the fall and winter months, November through March, the club provides and serves dinner every third Sunday at the Salvation Army for anywhere from 70 to 120 people. The club also participates in bell ringing during the holiday season for the Salvation Army.

New in 2009: Our club is funding an outreach vehicle for New Britain EMS. The vehicle is on order and should hit the sreets in the fall.

The club also supports many organizations in its efforts to help the sight impaired including the Connecticut Lions Eye Research Foundation, Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation and Lions Gallery for Low Vision (Low Vision Center). The most exciting project we have participated recently is fund a grant to the New Britain Museum of American Art to offer a tour of the museum for the blind and vision-impaired. The tour has tactile aids, such as plastic raised-line drawings of the paintings, several headsets with cassette players and their own copies of the cassette with narration, sound effects and music, to help people experience and appreciate some of the artwork in the museum.
