Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world every day because they share a core belief - to serve their community. Wolfeboro Lions give scholarships, support Lions Camp Pride, do eye screening of children and assist in the Wolfeboro/Tuftonboro area.
Lions have a dynamic history. Founded in 1917, we are best known for fighting blindness, but we also volunteer for many different kinds of community projects - including caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled.
Lions give sight. By conducting vision screenings, equipping hospitals and clinics, distributing medicine and raising awareness of eye disease, Lions work toward their mission of providing vision for all. We have extended our commitment to sight conservation through countless local efforts and through our international SightFirst Program, which works to eradicate blindness. Wolfeboro Lions assist with glasses, hearing aids, eye surgery, etc.
Our Leo Program provides the youth of the world with an opportunity for personal development through volunteering. There are approximately 144,000 Leos and 5,700 Leo clubs in more than 140 countries worldwide. Wolfeboro Lions hosts the only Leo Club in the state at this time: Kingswood Regional High School Leos.
Lions help during disasters. Together, our Foundation and Lions are helping communities following natural disasters by providing for immediate needs such as food, water, clothing and medical supplies – and aiding in long-term reconstruction.
Lions are active. Our motto is "We Serve." Lions are part of a global service network, doing whatever is necessary to help our local communities.
Wolfeboro Lions use various fundraisers to support our charities, including: Smith River Canoe Race, Poinsettia Sales, and Golf Tournament. We co-sponsor the Turkey Trot with the Parks and Rec department. We support Abenaki Ski Area by serving food at the x/c ski and snowshoe progressive dinner.
