The Negaunee Lions Club was founded in 1955. We are part of a District, State, and Inter-national organization with nearly 2 million members, all seeking to put their time and energy into local and world humanitarian causes that improve the quality of life for other.



In Negaunee, the Lions support many programs with volunteer work and financial contributions. In May you may see a Lion member taking contributions for the White Cane Drive, or in August serving at an aid station for bikers in the Ore to Shore Bike Race. Special events, such as our annual Pancake Breakfast and the Spaghetti Supper prior to the Ore to Shore helps us raise nearly $10,000 per year to put back into our area in the form of grants, scholarships and projects.

Most Lions Clubs spend up to 75% of their funds for projects in their local community. Additionly, we sup- port the Leader Dog School, the Michigan Eye Bank, the Home for the Blind, and the State Lions All-Star Band.

Contact us if you would like to become a member!

The Teal Lake Melt-Down is a contest to select the exact day and time the replica mine head-frame structure drops out of sight through the ice of Teal Lake in Negaunee, Michigan. The closest entry to the exact day and time determines the winner. The winning entry is worth 50% of the contest net proceeds or $500, whichever is greater. The 2019 winner received $1,508.
April 2: Entry deadline has past and now we’re waiting for the structure to sink to identify the winner.
