In addition to bleacher seats and balloon sales, the club has had many other projects to raise funds over the years. We have had "Silent Auctions", a "Krazy Karnival Klash" with a number of contests and games. Also band festivals and band competitions, and for many years put on the Lucky Lottery which was a night of fun, with a meal and drawings for prizes, cash prizes and gifts. We also had a few years where we conducted bingo events which included a basket bingo event.

The club's most recent event has been the sporting clays shooting event. It has turned out to be one of our most successful and lucrative fund raising events. This is a sporting clays shooting event. The sporting clays fund raiser has seen steady growth in the number of shooters with accompanying increases in income from the fund raiser.

Over the years, the Club has been active in district, state and international Lions activities. We have supported delegations of Club Members to attend state and international national conventions. Several members have also served as zone chairs in years past.

The Dillsburg Lions were also able to have a hand in sponsoring a number of new Lions clubs in other communities. Current records at Lions Clubs International show that Dillsburg sponsored the following clubs that are still in operation:

                            Boiling Springs, PA             Carlisle, PA

                             Mt. Holly Springs, PA           York Springs, PA

There are also records in club files to indicate that the Dillsburg Lions had some involvement with sponsoring the following Lions Clubs: Shippensburg, PA and New Cumberland, PA However since current records in the International Association do not confirm this sponsorship, it is possible that the club was reorganized under different sponsorship at some time following its initial sponsorship by the Dillsburg Lions.
