Who We are
The Woburn Host Lions Club is a group of men, with diverse backgrounds and jobs, who join together to raise funds to make those who are less fortunate than ourselves lives better. We get together weekly for dinner on Thursday nights, where we catch up on each others lives, but, equally importantly, plan and execute various fund raisers that we use to help people. If that sounds of interest, we ask you to get in touch with us.
The Woburn Host Lions hosted the Beast of the East Beep-Ball tournament on July 8th. The local news media covered the event and filed these reports; WCVB Channel 5 filed this REPORT, Channel7 was there as well with this REPORT, NBC Boston filed this REPORT. The Boston Globe did a STORY a couple days after the event.
The Woburn Host Lions had Luiza Aguilar, the Director of Products at Perkins Institute for the Blind, come to a recent meeting to talk about a project that the club will be taking on soon. Aguiar applied and received a grant from Google to develop an application to help blind and visually impaired people locate public bus stops. The application is called BlindWays and it relies on the public to gather and enter information that will help a handicapped person to accurately identify when they are standing at a public bus stop. The Woburn Host Lions members have volunteered to document all 125 MBTA stops in Woburn through the BlindWays App. Woburn will be the first municipality in the country to have all their bus stops registered.
