The North East Lions Club Inc. was founded March 1947, chartered April 14, 1947, and incorporated March 1948. The Host club was Rising Sun.
In 2000, the Upper North East Lions Club merged with our club. They have enabled our club to grow and through their membership, helped us to accomplish many goals.
The North East Lions Club continues to serve the community as it has done since 1947. Membership has changed, projects and fund raisers have changed over the years, but our goal is "We Serve". Check out our Projects Page to see what we are doing.

In March 2016, the North East Lions Club and Cecil College formed an agreement to provide a yearly scholarship for a student graduating from North East High School seeking a Cecil College Associate Degree. The Leon DeMond scholarship supports the student $1000 per year for two consecutive years.
Lion President, Michelle Manfredi, and Treasurer Kevin Dill met with Cecil College Foundation President, Mary Moore to present a check to the college. Yearly, net earnings from the core amount will provide scholarship.
