Sponsor Community
Events and Activities ...

The Doylestown Lions have sponsored the
popular Concerts in the Park at the Bucks County
Courthouse since 1946. These free concerts
feature the Central Bucks Community Band, made
up of children and adults from across Central
Bucks as well as the Doylestown Heat Band who are the ambassadors of the Doylestown Lions Club

Beacon lodge, a camp for the sight impaired, located in the middle of the state is owned and maintained by the Pennsylvania Lions Clubs.

Camp Kirby, located in Upper Bucks County,
a modern, well equipped summer camping venue
for hearing impaired children, is owned and
operated jointly by the Doylestown Lions and all
the Lions Clubs of District 14-A. The camp is also
used by Cub Scouts during the rest of the summer
months.

The Club has also provided a. pavilion for the
Central Bucks Family YMCA, important equipment
for local police departments, and sponsorship of
the All Star Football Game and banquet.

This is just a sampling of the projects

undertaken by the Doylestown Lions:

 

John T. Welsh, a past president of the
Doylestown Lions Club, was instrumental in
founding the Bucks County Association for the
Blind. Through the years, we have also supported
the Delaware Valley Eye Bank, Overbrook School
for the Blind, Beacon Lodge Camp for Blind
Children, Leader Dogs, and other major support activities for the  blind.                                                .

On a personal level, the club provides eye
examinations and glasses for children and others
in need. This is supported through the collection of
used eyeglasses. - Through fund raising activities,
the Doylestown Lions have supported the following
organizations over the years:

A Woman's Place, Make a Wish Foundation,
Ronald McDonald House, Special Olympics, Lions
Club International Foundation, YMCA Kids-To-
Camp, Meals on Wheels, Blind campers at Beacon Lodge and the Diabetic Foundation. The club is always looking for new projects to make our community a great place to live.

Lions International was founded in 1917
by Melvin Jones, and has become the world's
largest service organization.

Have Fun Working
For The Community ...

Help Those Who Are
Less Fortunate ...

       Since Helen Keller challenged Lions International to help the blind and hearing impaired in 1925, Lions Clubs have made this their prime concern. Doylestown Lions have carried on work
supporting their mission.

There are usually enjoyable educational
programs at regular meetings which include guest
speakers. We always set aside dates for spouse
activities such as Christmas and Valentine dinners,  occasional trips, and our Annual Charter
Brunch to install our officers for the next year.

We distribute 100% of all monies
generated by our activities to local charities.

An Invitation ...

You are cordially invited to join the
Doylestown Lions Club and become a part of a
long and proud tradition of Volunteer service to the
community.

Memmbership is open to men and women, 21

It does not take much time. There are only
two short  meetings, on the 1st and 3rd,
weeks of the month.  The first at the American Legion combines board and regular meeting with no dinner and the second at the Plumsteadville Inn
Restaurant with dinner at your own cost.  We understand how little spare time people have these days, so we keep the meetings at an absolute minimum. Regular meetings and work sessions are well planned by the President of the club insuring brevity.
We focus on service. Our Lions motto is "We
Serve".

The feeling of satisfaction after a successful
event is indescribable, knowing you have helped
people. The camaraderie that comes with working
toward a common good alongside fellow Lions can
not be duplicated anywhere.

We would. like you to come to a meeting and
get to know us. Complete the short form in this
web site as your initial step in becoming a part of
the world's largest service organization.
