NEW MEMBERS ALWAYS WELCOME
Contact any LION for LIONS membership details or see any member of East Granby LIONS for an application form.
Our officers for the 2016-2017 year have been elected and will be officially installed at our annual installation banquet at Tower Ridge Country Club Road (on Nod Road in Simsbury) on 09 JUN 2016.
Continuing, a very great THANK YOU to all who have faithfully supported our works and who have made our fund raising events successful over the past years. If you'd like to join us, contact for more information or contact any LIONS Member for an application form.
Remember that supporting our fund raising functions is supporting all of the East Granby and other charitable organizations that we sponsor or support (listed elsewhere on this page). We thank everyone for their continued interest and support.
Also, remember that all LIONS Clubs accept used or outdated prescription eyeglasses (and also hearing aids with batteries removed) for recycling. This includes sunglasses - both perscription and non-perscription - because dark glasses are needed after certain eye-surgeries.
Also recyclable are your unwanted or inoperative cell-phones with memory cards and batteries removed.
Collection points are EG Town Hall, Granby Pharmacy, Suffield Bank in East Granby, Hair It Is Salon in East Granby, and St. Bernard's RC Curch in Tarriffville - but any LIONS member will accept donations for this purpose or you may bring them to any one of our events.
