Why Join the Lions?

A life well lived. Your life well lived. 

Life is about what we do while we are alive. There is no higher calling than to lessen the pain of others. This is what the Acton Lions Club and Lions International does.

If you don't have a way to be deeply connected to the happenings of your town and if you are living a life where something may be missing, consider spending some time with the Lions to understand what we do. Hang out at events, we will buy you a dinner at one of our meetings at Rapscallions and there will NEVER be any pressure to join. You have to want to be a Lion. Once you do, it will improve the meaningfulness of your life.  

While we spend time with with our friends we made in the name of service, we make a difference in the lives of others in a way that helps us make great personal connections with key members of our town. 


Acton Lions Club History

The Acton Lions Club, chartered in 1955, currently has 72 members who give their time freely to help those in need and the less fortunate. We meet each month for a 6:30 pm dinner meeting on the first and third Tuesday of the month at Rapscallion Table and Tap (5 Strawberry Hill Rd, Acton).  An elected Board of Directors governs the Club, which meets monthly.

We are one of over 45,000 clubs that comprises Lions Clubs International, the largest service organization in the world with over 1.5 million members in 185 countries. Lions are known worldwide for eye research and their service to the blind.

Since 1955 the Acton Lions, now in their 63rd year, have contributed over $570,000 to the Massachusetts Lions Eye Research Fund, which is #2 among all Lions clubs in the State.  

In addition to eye research, the Acton Lions provide support to many local charitable organizations and community efforts. We also award several $1,500 scholarships to graduating ABRHS seniors each year. 

Membership in the Acton Lions Club is open to all without regard to race, gender, religious beliefs or national origin. Click on the Lions Membership Application for more information about joining the Lions or contact any active club member.
