OXFORD LIONS CLUB

The Oxford Lions Club is a civic organization that provides assistance to community needs and support to Lions Clubs International.

It is active in fund-raising projects that benefit eye research, diabetes detection and sight-related problems.  It collects donated eyeglasses for recycling to the needy. The organization also awards scholarships to graduating seniors from Oxford and volunteerism awards for eighth graders at commencement and sponsors an International Peace Poster prize.  The club has made various contributions to the town including development of Kirk’s Pond at the Town Hall, annual holiday lighting of the Town Hall and construction of the pavilion and improvements at Jackson’s Cove Park.  It has served refreshments at many town events. Among the club’s fund-raisers are car and cash raffles.
