This month the West Bend Lioness Lions Club will celebrate their 42nd anniversary. We are a group of dedicated volunteers who donate our time to raise money to support our local, state and global communities.
Lions are known for sight conservation efforts including the WI Eye Bank in Madison. Members transport eyes for corneal transplants and research through a network of volunteer Lions from across the state. Our donations to Lions Club International Foundation assist worldwide in disaster situations to alleviate human suffering.
Our collaborative efforts can be seen throughout the community. Our club helped fund a service dog; placed Braille menus in local restaurants; provided vision-screening in schools and kits for the homeless; organized Bingo parties; served soup at Enchantment in the Park; presented a Sesame Street Fire Safety Program with the WB Fire Department to pre-schools in the district; created an educational Butterfly Garden at the West Bend Library and the fishing deck at Ridge Run Park.
Our community donations include a bassinet for the hospital, AED for the Senior Center, TDD phone service for the deaf for the Washington County Sheriff’s Dept, and funds donated to their Dive Team and more than a dozen other local organizations. We also provided funds to support the WI Lions Foundation and Lion’s Camp for the blind, hearing impaired, diabetic, and mentally handicapped young people.
Each year we award two scholarships to students selected from our “Lioness Lion Student of the Month” program. Formerly profits from mint sales, and currently, our Terri Lynn nut sales fund these scholarships.
The Lioness Lions have done many things to improve life in the West Bend area. If you feel moved to join us in making a difference in our community, please contact Jeanette Holl at 262-306-7416 or Mary Lou Desrosier at 262-338-6564.
