"promoting citizenship with an active interest in the welfare of the community"


OUR HISTORY


The Mount Airy Lions Club has a rich history. The Club was chartered in October 1940, and was sponsored by the Frederick Lions Club. This makes the Mount Airy Lions Club the oldest service organization in the town of Mount Airy.

In a speech addressing the 1925 Lions Club International Convention the famous blind and deaf humanitarian Helen Keller, urged our organization to become the "Knights of the Blind" - and while we still follow that famous mandate, the Mount Airy Lions Club finds itself being involved in nearly every aspect of providing service to the residents of this community. For example this club maintains a very large inventory of electric hospital beds, wheel chairs, walkers, crutches, potty chairs and other sickroom equipment that we will loan out free of charge to anyone who needs it who resides in our area.

We collect thousands of pairs of used eyeglasses which are recycled to those who need them in poor and developing third world countries, while here in Mt. Airy we provide free eye exams and eyeglasses to those who can not afford them. The same goes for our hearing program for the needy. We also support the Lions Leader Dog program and the Lions Vision Research Foundation at the world famous Wilmer Eye Clinic located in the Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Every year we offer scholarships to graduation senior from local high schools and we support our youth through contributions given to local little league programs, football, soccer and lacrosse teams in our local sports leagues. We help sponsor a boy scout troop, support the youth in the local Civil Air Patrol squadron and we support our senior citizen programs plus many more community programs too numerous to list.
