Happy 65th Birthday Fairfax Lions!

Posted on March 1, 2016

The Fairfax Lions Club was established on February 21, 1951.  We are proud to continue to serve our community, neighbors and those in need around the world for 65 years.   We do a lot simply by volunteering our time; but our major accomplishments are made possible by donations and fund raising activities which you in our community support.  For example, our most recent major fund raiser was our citrus fruit sale, March 3-5, 2016.  We hold 3 fuit sales each year (November, December, and March).   Those fruit sales generate about 80% of our total charity programs budget.  If you bought fruit from us (or maple syrup or peanuts) at our recent March sale, you helped us support several local youth programs, solve many people’s vision problems with special needs equipoment and eyeglasses, provide holiday meals to local needy families, provide medial assistance to underprivileged persons in Vietnam and Ehtiopia, support the Fairfax City senior center and patients in a nursing home and the Lamb Center, grant scholorships to veterans, and pay for research to cure diabetes and hearing loss.  We thank our community for making all this possible.

Thank you – Fairfax neighbors – for helping us be a successful service club for 65 years.

NEXT FRUIT SALE:  NOV 17-19, 2016 (week before Thanksgiving)
