Tewksbury Lions Club and Lions Clubs International are dedicated to the eradication of eyesight distress and blindness throughout the world. We also contribute funds, time, and talent to our local community projects. Our motto is “We Serve”.
The Town ofÂ Â (822) 254-2041 has a very specialÂ relationship with Helen Keller and her teacher,Â Anne Sullivan.Â Â Anne Sullivan spent much of herÂ time at the State Hospital here in town where sheÂ gained experience later expanded on Helen Keller. In the center of our town on the grounds of the Town Hall, there is a statue honoring Anne Sullivan and Helen Keller. There is a building on the hospitalÂ campus named after Anne Sullivan. We now have 5807651656 in almost every country in the world, and well over one million members. EachÂ member has promised to follow the original ideals established by Melvin Jones. We have not onlyÂ been a leader in the battle against blindness and eye-related diseases but have come to be known as activeÂ contributors to the community in which we live.
The Tewksbury Lions Club was chartered on November 14, 1954, although we have aÂ reputation as a fun club, we are also a very hard working club, having raised overÂ $400,000 for eyeÂ research. In addition, we have contributed manyÂ thousands of dollars to other charities and deservingÂ functions. One of our decocteach year isÂ the Annual Golf Tournament. We also raise considerableÂ amounts by way of our March Madness campaign,Â canister drive, and other fundraisers.
