Acton Lions Tree and Wreath Sale is ON!!

The lights are up, the wooden structures will hold the many hundred trees that adorn the living rooms and parlors of families who celebrate

Christmas. The chainsaw will be buzzing, people will be smiling and another tree rides off on a car roof to sit above the gifts given at Christmas time. The Acton Lions tree and wreath sale has been a part of local traditions for decades.   

The Acton Lions will be at it again for nearly forty years of selling trees for charity. As always though, the Lions would not be able to do any of this without support from Acton Gas who has selflessly supplied power to our lot and Acton Ace Hardware who supplies the use of the space in their parking lot. Please show them thanks. As a large fundraising activity for the Acton Lions, event profits are donated to local charities, town or school needs and to fight diseases affecting sight. In addition the Lions International is fighting major diseases which kill millions of people in third world nations. Finally, when you visit the tree lot, pay attention to the vibe of the Lion’s members and consider how being a Lion would bring you an opportunity to do good deeds and make good friends.

 

So, take your family down, take a family picture, buy a tree and do some good. 

The Acton Lion Tree sale is located in the Acton Ace Hardware parking lot on 210 Main Street Acton and trees are available.  The lot operates on Saturday and Sunday from 10:00AM until 5:00PM. We also allow for an honor system during weekdays when Ace Hardware is open. Just enter the store and tell the cashier that you want to buy a tree. Our 6-8 foot Nova Scotia balsam trees are $50 and wreaths are also available. It is a cash operation and we will take checks as well. We will help you decide on the tree, trim the base, throw it on your vehicle and tie it down. This year we have beautiful balsam wreaths so you can do one stop shopping.

                                 Why Join the Lions?

A life well lived. Your life well lived. 

Life is about what we do while we are alive. There is no higher calling than to lessen the pain of others. This is what the Acton Lions Club and Lions International does.

If you don't have a way to be deeply connected to the happenings of your town and if you are living a life where something may be missing, consider spending some time with the Lions to understand what we do. Hang out at events, we will buy you a dinner at one of our meetings at Rapscallions and there will NEVER be any pressure to join. You have to want to be a Lion. Once you do, it will improve the meaningfulness of your life.  

While we spend time with with our friends we made in the name of service, we make a difference in the lives of others in a way that helps us make great personal connections with key members of our town. 

 

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), but with the current restrictions, we periodically meet on line.  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 66th 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.
