WHERE THERE’S A NEED, THERE’S A LION!
The largest service club organization in the world with over 1.4 million members. Both men and women are welcome to join our club and help us improve the quality of life for others. The Lion’s motto is “WE SERVE.”
The Negaunee Lions Club was founded in 1955. We are part of an international organization of nearly 46,000 clubs and over 1.4 million members world-wide. Lions Club members seek to volunteer their time and energy toward local and world humanitarian causes that improve the quality of life of others.
HOW DO LIONS SERVE?
In Negaunee, the Lions support many programs with financial assistance as well as volunteer work. In February you may see Lions volunteering at road crossings for the Polar Roll Bike Race, or in May taking contributions for the White Cane drive, or in August serving at an aid station at the Ore To Shore Mountain Bike Epic. Fundraisers throughout the year such as our Teal Lake Melt-Down, Pancake Breakfast, and Ore To Shore Pasta Feed help the club raise more than $10,000 annually for donations made throughout each year.
100% of fundraiser net proceeds are used to support the needs of others through donations and scholarships. Over the last three years the Negaunee Lions Club has put 91% of fundraising net proceeds to work supporting organizations within Marquette County, 95% within the U.P., with the remaining 5% supporting such organizations as the Michigan Leader Dogs For The Blind School and the Michigan Eye Bank.
