The Greater Greenfield Lions Club is the second Lions Club to be formed in the City of Greenfield. We were chartered on February 22, 2004 with twenty-two members. Ten of the members transferred from the Greenfield Lions Club and twelve are new Lions members. Since many of our members reside or work outside of the City of Greenfield, the name Greater Greenfield Lions Club was chosen. We feel fortunate that we are able to draw on the skill and talent from an area greater than just the City of Greenfield to make our club strong.
The Greater Greenfield Lions Club is very visible in the community. Listed below are some of our community activities:
Sponsoring the Crusin' Car Show
International Youth Exchange Picnic
Operation of the Brooks Pavilion at Alan Kulwicki Park
A Clown Squad
Providing assistance to community members with Site and hearing assistance
Providing Scholarships to High School Seniors
Beyond our Community
Lions Clubs have been internationally recognized for their service to the blind and visually impaired. Lions are also involved in a variety of other activities to help people in need, such as assisting the hearing impaired, providing diabetes awareness and education materials, and developing youth programs. The Wisconsin Lions Foundation owns and operates the Lions Camp in Rosholt, Wisconsin. The camp encourages learning through outdoor recreational and educational activities. Children with mild cognitive disabilities, children that are deaf or hard of hearing and blind or visually impaired, and children with diabetes can attend the Summer Camp sessions. There is no cost for attending any of the Summer Camp sessions for qualified Wisconsin residents.
