Tallmadge Lions screen children at Head Start, daycares, preschools, public and private schools every year starting in August and going through December.  In 2016, with assistance from other local Lions Clubs, we screened over three thousand seven hundred children  We are working to screen even more in 2016.  For pictures and more information, please visit our facebook page by clicking here.

The screening tested for many childhood vision problems, including myopia (nearsighted) hyperopia (farsighted), anisometropia (dissimilar vision), strabismus (abnormal alignment), amblyopia (poor vision in one eye), and astigmatism (defect in the lens of the eye).

The screening found vision problems and notified parents of over sixty six children that they should set up an appointment with an eye doctor.

If you work at a local school or pre-school and would like to request Lions assist in a vision screening, please contact Lion Bill Hixon at 330-633-9142.  There is no charge, this is one of the services Lions volunteers perform for our community.



Last year the Tallmadge Lions donated over $15,000.00 to assist those in need in our area and around the world.  This includes funds to support the Greater Akron Lions Eyecare Program (GALEP), and the Tallmadge Lions Scholarship given to a graduate of Tallmadge High School who has achieved academic excellence.


Celebrity Chefs Event

Every year we have our annual Celebrity Chefs event with a wine raffle, lottery tree raffle and silent auction.  It includes tastes of cuisine prepared by at least 15 celebrity chefs.  The Mayor of the City of Tallmadge has been one of our chefs every year.  We have also had Tallmadge City Council members, the Superntendent of the Tallmadge City Schools, Summit County Council members and many of the people you see every day in our community serving you their specialty dishes.  Come and enjoy the fun.
