Town of Harwinton gazebo painting project

The Harwinton Lions Club Lions Day Project was to repaint the Gazabo that we donated to the town and is located across from the town hall and Library.  





47th Annual Scholarship Breakfast 

This project is a critical fundraiser to support Region 10 schools. Our last in-person breakfast was in November 2019. We awarded Harwinton residents Sadie Boss and Samuel Bushka, Class of 2020, $1500 scholarships. Last year, we were unable to hold the breakfast, yet we awarded Elizabeth Gordon and Natalie Hamel from the Class of 2021, both of Harwinton, $1500 scholarships. At the same time, we continued our commitment to Region 10 activities including Project Graduation.

Tickets are $6 each, and can be purchased at:

The Harwinton Lions share in our pride of giving to our community for 60 years. We are proud to support the children of our community and many other local organizations and activities. Please join us for our drive-thru event on November 14th, and encourage your friends and neighbors to participate in this important initiative.
Please share to support the scholarship fund!

Christmas Baskets
The Lions Club of Harwinton annually provides Christmas food baskets for Harwinton families in need.  Each basket provides a complete Christmas dinner, as well as treats, and other food needs. The Adams Grocer of Thomaston assembles these gift baskets, which are paid for by the Lions Club of Harwinton, and  member delivered the day before Christmas.  The Harwinton Food Bank,  Bronc Callahan Community Fund, local churches, as well as suggestions by Lions Club members, help provide the names of families selected to receive assistance. 
The Harwinton Lions are very proud to have delivered between 25 and 35 Christmas food baskets each year,  for more than 35 years.

What happens to your eyeglass/hearing aid donations?

The glasses collected locally are processed in New Jersey where the glasses are cleaned and calibrated. Both Lion-sponsored and independent eye-care missions to developing countries then take boxes of glasses which have been calibrated and labeled by prescription to the host country.  Once an on-site eye exam is conducted, the patient is fitted with a pair of glasses which closest meets the required prescription.  Last year Hartford and Litchfield Counties collected nearly 30,000 pairs of prescription glasses.  Non-prescription sunglasses are also collected for use by medical missions performing cataract surgery and to help prevent cataract formation by exposure to ultraviolet rays in geographical areas where this is a primary cause for cataract conditions.
Used hearing aids are collected and refurbished where possible.  The Lions have contacts with hearing technicians who test hearing levels and can provide free hearing aids to those clients in need and who have financial hardship.
