To be an active club with Lions International, the largest civic organization in the world, and maintain the 25-acre Belknap community park deeded to the Lions more than 40 years ago.
The NOLC members, families, friends and the wonderful Anthem group came out in force to spruce up the playground, out-buildings, and the main conference center of the Belknap Event Center.
Our Charities and Park are supported in part by renting
The Belknap Event Center and a road-side advertising sign on State Highway 42.

Lions International Participation
The Lions organization was founded in the 1917 and challenged in 1925 by Helen Keller to develop programs preventing blindness. There are over a million Lions worldwide. We have collected over 1,000 pairs of glasses and cell phones in the past 2 years. We also pay for eye exams and eyeglasses through an arrangement with Vision works, participate in State Fair vision screening and host an annual Christmas Party for over 40 students at the School for the Blind on Frankfort Ave. We also support Camp Crescendo which holds free camp for sight and hearing impaired children. Our district also supports the Kentucky Lions Eye Center which operates an eye bank and funds research on eye diseases with the University of Louisville.
Belknap Community Park
In 1973 Edith Belknap deeded the park on US 42 to the Lions in the name of William Belknap. During the 1930's the main buildings were the Goshen Gardens restaurant and a butcher shop on the main thoroughfare between Louisville and Cincinnati. The North Oldham Lions have invested over $100,000 during the years for major building renovations, athletic field, ring road, gazebo shelters, and playground. The facility is there for the public to enjoy while being used for fundraisers to support Lions. Our Holiday Bazaar in November with Texas Hold ‘Em tournament has been a regular event. Our Lenten fish fries have become a tradition and many area residents have enjoyed the Belknap Event Center activities.
The club…we have a membership roster of over 45 and increasing as we focus on adding new members. The board of 7 meets the 1st Tuesday of each month with general membership meetings quarterly. Our plan is to increase our events as the membership grows.
