Lake Oswego Lions Club

This historic Heritage House in Lake Oswego is our meeting place.


 

     The Lake Oswego Lions Club is in a neighboring community to Portland, Oregon.   Lake Oswego is located on the west bank of  the Willamette River.  The club was chartered in October of 1946.  Our membership has 50 active members with a healthy cross-section of both age and gender.


Wednesday, June 15 ..Lions rally at the SB187 hearing in the Ways and Means Education Subcommittee

Lake Oswego Lion, PDG Sharon Rollins represented Lake Oswego Lions at the recent SB 187 hearing in the Ways and Means Education Subcommittee.  Lions filled the Hearing Room and an additional room that was equipped with Closed Circuit TVs.  Our testimony was well-received and there appears to be no resistance to public funding for vision screening for Oregon schools.


We now wait for a Work Session to be scheduled for SB 187.  The outlook is very good, so please continue to think positively.

Thanks to all the Lions that showed up in Salem at the State Capitol on short notice, to staff who testified expertly and also the two parents who spoke eloquently!  The turnout was important and sent a positive message to legislators that there is strong support for this Bill.

Thank you!

Flags for 1st Graders      April  2017

LOLC Representatives at Lions Day at the Capital May 2017


LOLC Members Dean, Gen, Carol, Sharon and Dale attended Lions day at the Capitol! They made lobby efforts with Senators Sherrie Sprenger, Lew Frederick,
Duane Stark, Jackie Winters, Alan DeBoer, Betsy Johnson, staff for Sen. Ginny Burdick, Richard Devlin, Mark Hass and Representatives Margaret Doherty and
Nancy Nathanson (Eugene Rep). Lion Sharon reported, "The day was incredibly full and it was most interesting to hear the versions of the status of the state’s
budget woes from so many legislators who are attempting to find answers."
We have confirmed that there is significant support for SB 187 among those with influence: "We can't afford NOT to fund vision screening for our kids" was a
common theme. Bills with appropriations are moving slowly, may not know the outcome until the very end of the session...please stay tuned.

Canine Services Chair, Lion Diane Mead was happy to announce to all who did not already hear it at the convention that the efforts spearheaded by Lion Wes King to raise the  $42,500 matching funds for grant in the amount of $85,000 for training dogs to serve children with autism has succeeded in record time!  She also wanted to report that she successfully presented a program to the Rockaway Lions about Dogs for the Deaf and Canine4 Companions for Independence at the Rockaway Club.  Although she did not "steal their gavel she did have her picture taken with it!
