Englewood Lions Club Celebrates 70 Years

The Englewood Lions Club was organized March 24, 1952, with 34 charter members. The club was the first service club in Englewood and has been in existence continuously ever since. Membership has fluctuated over the years from nine to 72 members. In October 1987, history was made when 17 members were inducted at one time and seven of them were women. Serving in 1988-89 was the Club’s first lady President, Katie Baumgarten. At the present time, the club has 19 members plus four associate members. The Clubs fundraisers have included selling pecan logs, grocery raffles, spaghetti dinners, corned beef & cabbage dinners, ham dinners, white cane collections, mints, flea markets and bingo. Recently a “Feed the Hungry” raffle was conducted with the proceeds going to two local food banks and to Meals on Wheels. The newest fundraiser is selling Christmas and Easter plants. Like all Lions Clubs, 100% of the net proceeds from fundraisers are returned to the communities served. Club volunteers also provide diabetes, retinopathy, and children’s vision screenings free of charge. And, with the Venice Lions Club, they operate a Lions Vision Clinic that provides free eye care to the needy. To anyone who would like to help the Englewood community, please consider joining the Lions Club. Visit www.englewoodfl-lionsclub.com or follow them on Facebook: facebook.com/englewoodlions. Pictured here, Lions from all over the state helped the Englewood Lions Club celebrate their 70th Charter Anniversary on March 27th at the Boca Royale Golf and Country Club in Englewood.
