Some of the Projects we do as a Club to service our community...

One of our most vaulable projects is our COMMUNITY CENTER:  Our club operates and manages the Melcher-Dallas Community Center.  We do this strictly on donations and rentals from the building.  We receive no help from the city, state or federal agencies.  We are very proud to be able to provide this service to our community. 

We have been working hard the past year doing major updates to the Community Center. 

A new metal roof has been put on, thank you to Chris & Jeremy Mann.  The place has a fresh coat of paint and redecorated thanks to member Madonna and the kitchen is going through a complete remodel, thanks to Bob for all your continued work.  The new counter tops are hand done, and are  BEAUTIFUL.  Things are looking nice, and we're not done yet...  A new larger Lion's Den (office) is being constructed at this time. 

Annualy we do an EASTER EGG HUNT in the city park for  Pre school through 6th grade at Easter time. 

We are collecting used ink jet cartidges.  Donate your ink jet cartidges to us.  Drop them off at the M-D Community Center, Marion County Bank (Melcher Office) or give to any MD Lions Club member.

HELPING OTHERS:  We help members in our community and surrounding area with the needs for Eye classes, medical needs, and more.  If you need assistance please contact us.  Assistance is given on a per case bases and on funds available.

We also help  our neighboring Lions Club ( Knoxville Lions Club) with parking cars and flipping pancakes during the sprint car racing season and nationals.

At our Community's annual "Coal Miners Day" celebration, we have a Bingo Stand and concessions in the city park, and we do Bingo on a once a month basis to help support our building and our community.

We are proud to be the Sponsor for  Melcher-Dallas Dollar for Scholors.  Melchr-Dallas Dollars for Scholors is in it's 15th year (started in 2006) and we've awarded 146 scholarships totaling over $160,000.  M-D Lions  through Melcher-Dallas Dollars for Scholors, awards 3 - $500 scholorships each year to our high school graduates.  This was made possible throught the generous gift of investment from one of our founding members; Mr. Henry Becker, whom we miss very much!  

Our Club does many more service and community projects.  We are proud to be LIONS and together, WE SERVE!
