Last Monday Duxbury Lions Club members attended the District 33S Cabinet Advisory meeting in Raynham and delivered over nine boxes of items donated by Duxbury residents, the Lions Club, and the Rotary Club. It was quite an impressive collection of items for our troops and their K-9 counterparts. Donations were also received from Happy Tails Pet Boutique, Sportsworks, and Jack Conway agents. If you know anyone in the armed forces, stationed in the U.S. or abroad, to whom you would like the Lions to send a box, pls email Marie Van Slyck at

Lions Club Joins Forces With Postal Workers for Food Drive

The Duxbury Lions Club joined up with the “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive organized by the National Association of Letter Carriers (NACL) to help stock the shelves of their new food pantry, "The Lions Share", opening in June.  Many bags full of groceries were put out mailboxes throughout town -evidence of the kind generosity of many town residents sharing their good fortune with others less fortunate.  The kind-hearted postal carriers were graciously responded to the call for help and handled the "heavier-than-normal" loads with smiles.  When all ten mail trucks had returned to the post office and were unloaded by Lions Club members and postal workers, it was a fine bounty to be seen on the loading dock.  A full trailer of food was taken to the food pantry and placed on the shelves.  It is guesstimated that the total lot weighed approximately 1,500 pounds!  Everyone should be proud of the great response received from our community.

Eyemobile at Duxbury Health & Wellness Fair

The Duxbury Lions Club participated in the annual Health and Wellness Fair 2012 held at the Senior Center, joining many other local professional services exhibits.  Lions Club President, John Killion, and Director, Paul McCormack, conducted vision, eye pressure, and hearing screenings in the Eyemobile for many of the event’s attendees. While staffing the membership exhibit table inside, Club Secretary, Marie Van Slyck, answered questions about the Lions Club and directed those interested to the Eyemobile.  There was a good level of interest shown in the Club and donations received for "The Lions Share" Food Pantry.

"Lions Share" Food Pantry Open House

It was a beautiful, sunny day on Sunday, June 10th, when the Duxbury Lions Club Food Pantry, “The Lions Share”, held its open house.  The long anticipated opening was a big success with many residents in attendance to check out the facility and partake in this joyous occasion.  At 1 o’clock, Lions Club Vice President, Linda Collins welcomed the group to the event.  Pastor David Troxler addressed the gathering and recognized the tireless efforts of many including Lions Club members, the Interfaith Council, resident volunteers, and members of St. Paul’s Church of the Nazarene – especially the teens who willingly gave up their teen meeting place for the food pantry.  Pastor Karen Troxler bestowed the blessing upon the food pantry.  Plenty of food was on hand, and lovely music was provided by violinist Debby Gleason and her students and by St. Paul’s singers.  Following the ceremony, everyone was able to tour the food pantry and learn more about its operation.  The cutting of the beautiful cake by Lions Club President, John Killion brought the end to a fun afternoon’s festivities.

The first day of operation for the food pantry was Monday, June 11th, and we look forward to helping anyone in need who is a resident of Duxbury.  The food pantry regular hours are:  Mondays, 10:30-12:00 noon and Fridays, 4:30-6:00 pm.  Food donations may also be dropped off at the food pantry during regular hours of operation.


The Duxbury Lions Club is collecting used eye glasses and hearing aids.  A collection box is located at the Duxbury Senior Center.

"Pennies for Sight" is a fundraising campaign for the Eye Research Foundation. There are collection jars at various locations around town for your contributions.
