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.
Well, October has come and gone, our major fundraisers of the year are now in the rear view mirror. All we can say is a profound Thank You to the people of Woburn, and surrounding communities, for participating and supporting our endeavors to raise money for our charities, while also making citizens lives better, in some small way. The Club will be participating in a few other events upcoming through the end of the year (B & G Club road race on Nov. 6th, as well as the Festival on the Common on 27th). Although the events we run are over for the year, 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, or you can scan the QR code below to donate.
The Woburn Host Lions Club is emerging from the COVID pandemic with a continued resolve to honor our motto, “We Serve”.
As the Woburn community moves forward with its re-opening we will be re-starting our activities and public service projects with an eye toward moving our mission forward in the most responsible ways possible.
Already in the works are plans for our annual Halloween Parade, which is being dedicated to all of the Health Care Professionals who have worked to help us all so tirelessly these past few years! Our annual Monster Dash (both in October) and our participation in the Festival on the Common (in November). We have returned to in-person weekly meetings and encourage potential new members to visit us for a dinner meeting.
Thank you to all the first responders and medical personnel who have bravely risked their own safety to care for all of us over the past many months.
Thank you also to the "unsung heroes" who stocked our grocery stores and who delivered product to those stores, those who brought us our online and take out purchases, who worked behind the scenes to keep facilities of all kinds cleaned and everyone who worked to keep us informed.
While we are always looking for new members, we had to say say no to this young man....at least for a couple more years! If you are interested in joining us in raising money for great causes, while having a pretty darned good time doing it, shoot us an email. (btw- this is one of our members son hanging out at our recent Monster Dash)

Thanks to the generous donations collected from the community, even without the annual Halloween parade and Monster Dash.

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.
