The Akeley Lion's Club adopted 2.5 miles of County Road 25 which goes around 11th Crow Wing Lake from Hwy 64 to Hwy 34. There are two signs up recognizing the Akeley Lion's Club community service effort. Members will be out in force cleaning the ditches as soon as the snow melts and it warms up a bit.



The Lions Organization is an international organization and serves in many areas throughout the world.  Just what does a Lion do?  Our motto is "We serve" and that is exactly what we do.  Each year the Akeley club makes donations to help maintain the Minnesota Lion Eye Clinic and hospital, the training and ultimately placing of a Seeing Eye dog with a blind person.  We support the hearing dog foundation that helps train dogs to be placed with a deaf person so that he/she can remain independent. We make donations for research to help find a cure for diabetes and have helped screen people for diabetes at Health fairs throughout the world, they help support the youth outreach camps.
On the local level the Akeley Lions have held benefits for persons who have problems with their medical bills, made donations to the Senior Center, Akeley, Nevis Food Shelf, ARCC, Minnesota Folklore Theater and the library within the ARCC.  They constructed the Paul Bunyan picnic area in front of the museum,  and participated during the Akeley Clean-up days.  They have donated time and money to construct the new fence and sign at the entrance to the cemetery and the new directory.  The Lions are very active in the community during the holidays generously donating monies and time to various projects and charities.
