What Is the Northport Lions Club?
Northport, AL chartered its Lions Club on February 25, 1955 with 79 charter members. Mr. Dawson Christian was our first President, and Mr. A.M. Kizziah was our first Secretary. At that initial meeting, we adopted as our motto the motto of Lions Clubs International: WE SERVE.
Today, membership hovers around 50 men and women. We meet twice a month for a meal and fellowship. The club proudly supports a variety of causes, a few of which are outlined below:
- Camp Seale Harris: a weeklong summer camp to train diabetic children to manage their illness.
- Alabama Lions Sight Conservation Association: provides eye surgeries for patients statewide.
- Local Sight Work: our club provides eye exams and glasses for people in our area.
- Caring Days: provides a day program for adults with Alzheimer's and other memory disorders.
We support these causes through fundraisers: pancake breakfasts, Deer Hunts, and other events.
We are always looking for a few good men and women. Please click on "Contact Us" in the upper left corner of this page to learn how to join.
