Acton Lions Club History

The Acton Lions Club, chartered in 1955, currently has 72 members who give their time freely to help those in need and the less fortunate. We normally meet each month for a 6:30 pm dinner meeting on the first and third Tuesday of the month at Rapscallion Table and Tap (5 Strawberry Hill Rd, Acton).  An elected Board of Directors governs the Club, which meets monthly.

We are one of over 45,000 clubs that comprises Lions Clubs International, the largest service organization in the world with over 1.5 million members in 185 countries. Lions are known worldwide for eye research and their service to the blind.

Since 1955 the Acton Lions, now in their 67th year, have contributed over $580,000 to the Massachusetts Lions Eye Research Fund, which is #2 among all Lions clubs in the State.  

In addition to eye research, the Acton Lions provide support to many local charitable organizations and community efforts. We also award several $1,500 scholarships to graduating ABRHS seniors each year. 

Membership in the Acton Lions Club is open to all without regard to race, gender, religious beliefs or national origin. Click on the "Contact us" link at the top left of the page for more information about joining the Lions or contact any active club member.
