What do Lions Clubs do? Our Primary focus is with persons who are visually impaired or blind by supporting research into methods to improve vision. The Eye bank is one way to support this effort. By donating your eyes after death we may help a friend or stranger anywhere in the world achieve better vision.
We financially support local volunteer emergency services in all three communities, and the Southern Lehigh Public Library, and we have established an endowment fund with the Southern Lehigh School District to provide a perpetual scholarship program for graduating seniors.
Further, we support District 14K and International programs for visually impaired and diabetic persons.
For more than three decades we have raised monies through a varied effort of fund raising. We have been sponsoring our flea markets
In June and August at the Living Memorial Park adjacent to the VFW building across from the Giant in Coopersburg.
We have also sponsored a community directory for our friends and neighbors in the Southern Lehigh Communities.
If you wish to join this effort and help us raise more funds which can be turned back to the communities, please contact the Club Secretary at 484-264-2391 for more information.
The Upper Saucon Lions Club was chartered in 1976. Our Charter President was Lion Howard Deppe.
Since 1976 our Club has returned more than $100,000 to the community through its fundraising projects.
Our members come from all walks of life and bring their experience to bear on projects and community needs.
Please consider joining our Lions Club to help us support our Southern Lehigh Community.
