History of Albion Lions Club

    Albion's Lion Club charter night was December 9,1952 and held in the old Albion High School gymnasium. The first meetings were held at the Schnetzlers Restaurant, located near the present Post Office on Orange street. The first President was James Girard.

     Some of the early projects were helping in the purchase of land for Chain-O-Lakes State Park. Building of tennis and basketball courts were the new High School is now. Three school crossing light, paying for glasses for students with families unable to afford them.

     Money was raised for these projects by holding pancake suppers, chicken barbecues, citrus fruit, popcorn, light bulb and broom sales.
