June 2019

After 42 years, the Chelsea Lions Club is showing the sign of the times and maybe dissolved.

Like so many of the community service organizations in the US, they are having a hard time recruiting new members.  After several years the club membeshiphas grown older with few new active members.  With the older membership, it continues to bet harder to generate funds and do the community projects.

What will that mean to the community of Chelsea?  Two less Chelsea High school Seniors will get scholaarships, 30 families will not get holiday turkeys at Thanksgiving and Chritmas,  200 kids between 6 months and 5 years old will not have free yearly eye screening, Several needy people per year will have to find other means to get eye exams and basic glasses or hearing aids so they can again be productive, one or two less families will have a nice Christmas thro Faith and Action, 2 girls will not have funding to go to Girls State and various events like the Senior Center, Library and Youth exchange willl no longer have the Lions Club support,

Other things that the Lions do that do not directly impact Chelsea are:  Akpproximately 12,000 pairs of glasses will not be collected from the community to be cleaned, restored and given out on mission trips to other countries in need, eye and diabetes research, contributions to the Penrickton School for Blind Kids, Leader dog for the blind and many more things.

For the Chelsea Lions to survive we need new community minded members with new ideas, new technologies and new energies.

If youare interested in joining the Chelsea Lions Club and see firsthand what we are about, yu are always welcome to one of our meetings the first and 3rd Tuesday of the month at the Chelsea Hospital dinning room "A" at 6:30 pm for one of our dinner meetings on us.  After dinner we normally have a shortr meeting and often have interesting guest speakers or you can call 734-262-2122 or e-maill us at Chelsealionsclub@gmail,com

It’s almost the end of this year’s KidSight Screening.  This year we are using the new Spot camera system.  So far this year we have screened 193 kids and adults with referrals for 11 kids and 8 adults that did not already have glasses.  We have screened at 9 locations so far with one more new location to do and we will be finished for the year.

 

This year we donated 30 turkeys to Faith In Action families, and adopted a family for Christmas.  Also, this year we provided books for Christmas to the Chelsea Head Start kids.

December 3rd members went to the Pendrickson Center for their Christmas party presenting a donation.

                                               

November 2018

Important Note:  The board at the November board meeting decided to suspend meetings from Jan.1 – May 1, 2019 because so few members will be available till spring.  So, we will be having the meeting on Dec. 18, 2018 and the next meeting will be May 7, 2019.
