The Cosmopolis Lions Club will celebrate its 65th year anniversary on March 13.
Since the club’s chartering in 1947 its members have worked on a variety of projects in the local community, such as The White Cane Project, eyeglass recycling and durable medical equipment recycling. Proceeds from past fundraising events have gone to scholarships, after school art projects, Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets, Cancer Relay and Coastal Harvest Food Bank as well as numerous others. The club is currently working on the Cosmopolis Easter Egg Hunt, firewood sales, and getting ready for eyeglass recycling and White Cane Safety Week during the month of May.
According to Bill Smith, President, “We are proud of our club’s 65 years of service to the community. The Lion club members thank everyone who contributes to this important work. You are truly helping Lions make a difference in our community.”
The Cosmopolis Lions Club has 36 members and meets on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month at 6:30pm at 601 2nd St. Lions clubs are a group of men and women who identify needs within the community and work together to fulfill those needs.
