Meetings

The Club will be meeting via Zoom Video Conference.  The Board Meetings will continue to be the second Wednesday of the month at 7 PM, and the Regular Meetings will be on the fourth Wednesday at 7 PM.     

Make A Mask Challenge

Everyone needs to be wearing a mask to protect themselves and others. The Dennis/Harwich Lions Club is looking for help in making masks now.

All masks will be safely distributed free of cost. One doesn’t have to be a Lion to participate. Those who don’t sew can donate new materials such as 100% cotton cloth, quarter-inch flat elastic, thread, interfacing, plastic bags or cash to supplement donations and associated costs. All donations will be disbursed to charity with no administrative costs.

Our goal is to quickly be able to supply personal masks to anyone on Cape Cod who needs one. Patterns for masks are available online. Those who need or can’t safely find the necessary materials may contact Lion Rick White at rwdhlmamc2020@comcast.net. We are arranging safe drop-off and pickup locations.

Requests and donations can be made to the Dennis/Harwich Lions Club, memo Make-a-Mask Fund,  P.O. Box 41, Dennisport, MA  02639.

In 2017, the Dennis Harwich Lions Club celebrated 50 years of service to the Cape Cod community and beyond.  We were charted December 13, 1967 by then President John A. MacNaught, Jr. and 50 other men from Harwich and Dennis.  Since then we have sponsored other Lions Clubs in Chatham, Falmouth, and Sandwich.  We just started a new Branch Club in Eastham.  We now have 34 members, both men and women.  We are always looking for new members!

We are well-known for our local service and fundraisers throughout the year.  100% of our donations are returned to the community both locally and internationally including:

  • Sight loss education and prevention
  • Collecting used eyewear and hearing aids which are sent worldwide
  • Diabetes education and research
  • Supporting Massachusetts Lions Eye Research 
  • Worldwide Disaster Relief
  • Offer use of Vitrectomy Chair for use after certain eye surgery
  • Support local charities (Salvation Army, Food Pantries, Youth Recreation, Boy Scouts/Girl Scouts).

We support our youth by:

  • Sponsoring $2,000 individual college scholarships for students living in Dennis, Harwich or Brewster.    
  • Holding an annual High School Speech Contest where winners may compete at the State Level.
  • Running "Coats for Kids" - October to December
  • Holding a free "Breakfast with Santa" event with free photos
  • Providing eye screening in local schools

Our goal is to "Help Cure Preventable Blindness."  Our fundraising activities include sponsoring the Michael Brennan Closest to the Pin in June, hosting the annual craft fair in July at the Brooks Park in Harwich; and having a booth at the Seaside Festival in October.  We have placed donation canisters in our local businesses to assist with our Pennies for Sight program.

 With our fundraising efforts, we are able to give to the research facilities through the Massachusetts Lions Eye Research Fund.
