Our Club is a small organization and we are always looking for new members. We are a non-profit  which redirects our fundraising efforts to assist members of our community in need. Our primary goal is to provide support to sight and hearing impaired individuals in the community. Our club sponsors a Youth Dance for 3rd., 4th., & 5th. grades students at the Pfieffer Community Center. Our goal is to provide a fun, safe enviorment to allow the children to interact with fellow students outside of the school setting. Our last dance was attended by 151 children. We also provide scholarships to our local High School for a deserving young woman and man needing financial help to attend college.

If you are interested joining please contact Fran Mulherin at 609-472-6640.

Our club was contacted by a representative from the Magee Rehabilitation Hospital in Philadelphia requesting assistance to help a resident from Sicklerville who was blinded by Diabetes to secure a computer. This young man age 41, was hoping to get a job working from home with the assistance of this computer and reenter the workforce and contribute to society. Even though he did not actually live in our club's area, we contacted the Winslow Township Lions Club. Together our clubs were able to purchase the required computer designd to help visually impaired people. It was presented to him on Friday, February 22, 2019.

Our club on Saturday, March 2, 2019 provided a station at a local Health Fair organized by a Boy Scout  from Troop 161 from town as his project to attain his Eagle Scout ranking. We provided literature and handouts for both adults and children concerning eye/vision health. We also conducted basic eye screening for all persons requesting it during the 4 hour health fair.
