We now have Lions clubs in most every country in the world, and well over one million members. Each member has promised to follow the original ideals established by Melvin Jones. We have not only been a leader in the battle against blindness and eye related diseases but have come to be known as active contributors to the community in which we live.
The Tewksbury Lions Club was chartered on November 14, 1954, although we have a reputation as a fun club, we are also a very hard working club, having raised over $400,000 for eye research. In addition, we have contributed many thousands of dollars to other charities and deserving functions. One of our major fundraisers each year is the Annual Golf Tournament. We also raise considerable amounts by way of our March Madness campaign, canister drive, and other fundraisers.
