Their motto is “We Serve,” and the Kiel Lions Club does this with pride.
The Kiel club helps fund the Lions Camp at Rosholt where children who are blind, hearing impaired or have diabetes can go for one week and just be children and be with children like themselves. These camps are held during the summer at no charge.
The club also supports the Leader Dog Foundation which trains dogs for people who need them. The dogs also are given at no charge.
Poor-sighted people who need a magnifi er for reading material are supplied one at no charge. Two Kiel High School seniors also get scholarships each year for a two-year college.
Some of the groups which benefit from the Kiel Lions Club are Close Up, Safety Patrol, Boy Scouts, Badger Boys, People to People, Mission to Mexico, Canine Companions, Lions Eye Bank, Community Chest, Cerebral Palsy, St. Vincent de Paul, Christmas Cheer, Lions Hearing Bank, Child Development, Fire Department, Police Department, school trips, Athletic Club, Salvatorian Center, Kids Center, and quilts for service personnel.
The Lions accomplish all this by earning money from the Kiel Community Picnic, and from its ham and chicken dinner held with the Kiel Optimist Club.
Meetings are held the first Thursday of each month starting at 7:15 p. m. at Millhome Supper Club. For more information call Judy at 894-7291 or Dave at 286-2300.
