The Seadrift Lions Club was Chartered in October, 2009 and has been active in the Seadrift Community ever since.  Our Lions support the local Food Banks that provide assistance to the families of Seadrift. We also support the Texas Lions Camp for handicap and diabetic children, the Lions Eye Bank of Texas, the Texas Lions Foundation, The Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center, World Services for the Blind, Leader Dogs for the Blind, and the Lions Clubs International Foundation.  We have hosted Market Day by the Bay for two years, and supplied a swing for handicapped children and adults to the City Park by the baseball fields. We have also built new stairs and a wheelchair ramp for some of our neighbors.

If you would like to learn more about the Seadrift Lions, our projects, or our charities, we invite you to attend one of our meetings. We meet at First National Bank at 6:30pm on the second and fourth Thursday every month.
