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.
