PAST HISTORY

  • The Larsen-Winchester Lions Club Inc. was organized April 30, 1974 and received its Charter, June 1, 1974, with 38 Charter Members. We have always been a very busy service club.

  • During our early years, our club sponsored the "Lil Britches Rodeo", Sweet Corn & Brat Roasts, the North American Cross Country 250 Snowmobile Races and Barn Dances. 

  • We sponsored bingo and still sell community birthday calendars. 

  • Our Club members are proud of the many financial donations and volunteer hours we have contributed to our local, state, and international communities. The list includes scholarships, eye examinations and glasses or contact lenses, cash donations to needy persons, families, and recovering hospitalized persons as well as contributions to organizations that help the underserved. 

  • We purchased and assembled playground equipment for the Winchester school and the Clayton town parks.

  • We built a concession shelter at Winchester's Earl Nelson Park baseball field.

  • We donated money each year in support of the Winchester Youth Baseball League.

  • We supported "Beat the Heat", a program where high school students build high performance cars and then drag race with police officers in an off-road location.

  • In 2004, we built a 40 X 80 foot building to store the club ramp construction materials and the Medical Equipment Loan Locker. 

    • It is located in the town of Larsen two buildings behind Clayton Town Hall and Fire Department building next to Trailhead Park.

    • Generous donations of money, site preparation, material and equipment made this project possible. 

    • Prior to that time, we stored some medical or ramp materials at the Larsen Coop and various members stored the remainder in their sheds, garages and barns.
