What else is there to say except, THANK YOU everyone for the support for our Parade!
On October 29th, we expect over 30,000 smiles and costumes for our 69th Annual Halloween Parade. On October 15th, children, runners, and walkers will participate in a great costume fun run at the Monster Dash. Scarecrows will be displayed throughout the town during the month of October for the Joyce Middle School Cubs’ Annual Scarecrow Contest. Our traditions of fun and fundraising for Massachusetts Lions Eye Research and Woburn Host Lions charities are only possible with your donation.
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 fundraisers that we use to help people. If that sounds of interest, we would ask you to please get in touch with us.
The Woburn Host Lions Club is a registered 501 (c)3 organization.
SUPPORT OUR MISSION
The need to continue raising funds to help people continues. We would like to provide a means by which those of you who support our mission of eyesight research can make a donation towards that end. We've set up a form where you can make a donation towards Lions Eye Research, to help us fulfill our mission.
LIONS CLUB INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATION
Did you know that millions of people around the world have benefited through more than 13,000 Lions Club International Foundation (LCIF) grants, which have totaledmore than US$1 billion. That number continues to grow in part from gifts from foundations, corporations, governments and non-Lions. However, the vast majority of LCIF’s funding comes through the generous donations from Lions clubs and individual members. The Woburn Host Lions Club makes a substantial donation each year to support the work of LCIF.

WHAT IS HAPPENING AT OUR CLUB!
Since our club has no idea how to take it easy, we figured why not throw a Beep-ball tournament on Saturday July 15th. Five teams from the northeast played in the "Beast of the East" beep-ball held at the Joyce soccer fields in Woburn. We had assistance from the Middlesex Lions Club here in Woburn as well. Click HERE to see some photo's of the day. Thanks to all who participated!
The Woburn Host Lions are proud to be assisting the International Lions Convention, being held in Boston this year. We were tasked with making sure the Parade goes smoothly....after all, we do have SOME experience in that area!
