In 2014 the West Hartford Lions Club, founded in 1946, joined with the Hartford Host Lions Club, founded in 1922, to form the Greater Hartford Host Lions Club. The goal of the club, as in the past, will be "To Serve," but now it will be to an expanded area. Support will continue to be given to such vision organizations as the Low Vision Center in New Britain, Oak Hill School, amd Connecticut Radio Information Service for the Blind (CRIS). Scholarship programs will focus on graduating seniors who are college bound. Needy children and adults who require eye exams and/or glasses will be helped. The American School for the Deaf (ASD) and Childrens Village wil continue to receive Lions Club support, as will as number of other child and adult organizations.



The Greater Hartford Host Lions Club is proud to announce Andrew Stern is a recipient of the prestigious Melvin Jones Fellowship.  This Fellowship is the highest honor presented by Lions International to individuals demonstrating a commitment to volunteerism and service in their community.  Andrew has been a Lions Club member for 43 years, serving first with the Hartford Host Lions Club.  In 2013, he was instrumental in merging the Hartford Host Lions Club with the West Hartford Lions Club to form the Greater Hartford Host Lions Club.  Today the club has 31 dedicated members that volunteer and raise funds for many charities in the West Hartford and Hartford communities, including the American School for the Deaf, Oak Hill School, Foodshare, Fidelco, the Lowenberg Scholarship, West Hartford Community Television, the Connecticut Lions Eye Research Foundation, Chris Radio, as well as providing eyeglasses and eye exams for those in need. Andrew continues to be an inspiration to the Greater Hartford Host Lions Club.


Andrew is chairperson of the club’s 55th Annual Breakfast on April 28, 2019 at the American School for the Deaf, which is the club’s major annual fundraiser.  His lifetime dedication to service to the Hartford and West Hartford communities made Andrew a clear choice for the Melvin Jones Fellowship. Andrew accepted the honor at a statewide luncheon held on January 26, 2019;  Jimmy Ross, Past Lions Club International President was the presenter.
