Our regular meetings resumed on Tuesday, September 6, 2016. Happy to see everyone back and ready to work. Our International President this year is Bob Corlew of Tennessee, in the USA,.

The Sayreville Lions Club has received a Certificate of Achievement for our support of youth in the community. Programs include the High School awards and scholarship, the Peace Poster Contest and support of the Girl Scouts who assist at our pancake breakfasts.
We have been renovating our roadside billboard signs in the Borough to let people know we are active in the community. The sign at the Veterans Bridge from So. River is shared with other clubs and organzations in town. We now have a presence at all the main entries to Sayreville. We are planning to include our website address on our roadside signs so residents and visitors to Sayreville can know there is a Lions Club in the community, what we are doing, and how to contact us. Our website address is: http://www.sayrevillenj.lionwap.org. Our e-mail address is: email@example.com. You can also visit us on Facebook @ Sayreville Lions Club.
Those interested in joining our club can indicate their interest on-line at:

We have also chartered a Leo Club in the Sayreville schools to provide service opportunities to its students. Interest in this project has been running high and has good support from the superintendent and teachers.
