For over 49 years, our club has earned and donated over $785,000 to help “serve” the less fortunate. We also promote the purpose of Lionism and fulfill its mission, which is to aid the hearing and visually handicapped.

Scott Mayer of Port Washington lost his sight several years ago, and the Port Washington Lions Club has helped him gain an education to become a teacher by the donation of a Braille computer and two leader dogs. We have contributed to many other projects, including talking workbooks for the W.J. Niederkorn Library in Port Washington, a Braille typewriter and assisting local athletic teams.

One of our most recent projects is the Lions Camp in Roscholt, Wisconsin. Our participation included committing financial aid to build a residence building, sports equipment and our support. Three of our club members’ children have attended the camp, which is available to all handicapped by application to experience the outdoors for themselves.
