Freeport Lions Challenge Community – Join Us and Make a Difference
|Freeport Lions, Rick Eastman, Terry Anderson and Roland Caruso help clean up the community|
“Our club gives members an opportunity to advance worthy causes, have fun serving alongside friends, and become leaders in the community. This club means a lot to our members, but it means so much more to the people we serve,” said Lion Rich Montgomery, club president. “We want to share the great things we’re doing in the community, and let others know how they can help.”
The Lions’ motto is “We Serve,” and the Freeport Lions Club has lived up to it for 78 years. Lions have aided individuals of all ages with vision and hearing disabilities. They provided support to victims of disasters and people in need of cancer treatment. They support Leader Dogs for the Blind, and The Center for Sight and Hearing. They also award an annual $1,000 scholarship to a high school senior to attend Highland Community College.
