The Zilwaukee Lions Club was chartered in 1956.

In the first year they started the first boat dock located on the Saginaw River in Zilwaukee. It started out as one wooden dock and has progressed to a four launch site with steel retaining walls and handicapped fishing ramps. The Zilwaukee Lions have put over $60,000.00 in the site along with grants from the State of Michigan

Since then the club has provided eye glasses, donated items such as a baby bed and mattress, donated toward a tape library for the blind, purchased picnic tables for the city park, purchased rain coats and helmets for the Safety Patrol, built a pavilion in the City park, distributed food baskets and/or flowers for shut ins at Christams, hold an annual Senior Citizens' Christmas Dinner, Easter Egg Hunt and many other activities.

We support many local, state and international projects including: Speical Needs Vision Clinic in Bridgeport Michigan, Leader Dogs for the Blind, Michigan Eye Bank, Drug Awareness, Lions Club International Foundation, Lions of Michigan Foundation, Diabetes Awareness and many others.

We have also been involved with the local school on such projects as a family picnic/movie night and sent students to a band camp.

The Zilwaukee Lions continue to be an active organization in the community.
