Welcome to the Hanover Lions Club! We are located in Hanover, New Hampshire, and our club was established in 1937 to serve the local community.
At the Chamber-of-Commerce-sponsored HomeLife Expo in Leverone Field House, we'll have a booth in which we'll conduct eye screenings this year. Come on by to see what we're all about.
Our club celebrated its 75th anniversary four years ago and currently has more than 30 active members. Our motto is ‘We Serve.’ Our projects and charities range from providing an Annual Senior Barbecue and volunteering at the Prouty, to assisting needy Upper Valley neighbors with eye and hearing exams, eye glasses and hearing aids. We also sponsor local sports teams and scouts. We hold food drives, donate funds to local shelters, and support the development of nature preserves and sports fields. The Club provides scholarships to Hanover High School seniors who provide volunteer service to our local community.
The Prouty: July 11, 2015
The Hanover Lions once again cooked for the Prouty, an event that we've been supporting since its inception. Here's a letter from our organizer, Star Johnson:
Dear fellow Hanover Lions,
As most of you know, last Saturday the Hanover Lions manned the Prouty BBQ tent for the 33rd year in a row,
and a few weeks prior to that, on Saturday, June 21, we sponsored the 22nd annual Twin State All-Star Lacrosse Games (21st for boys, 18th for girls), something we’ve done almost every year since 1996 (one year interrupted in
1997, when the games were held in Middlebury, VT).
Barbecueing at The Prouty is a service we provide
to help make the event a tremendous fund-raiser for the Norris Cotton
Cancer Center, while sponsorship of the All-Star Games is a service we
provide to both honor
the senior all-star lacrosse athletes of Vermont and New Hampshire, and
generate income for our charitable fund.
Both events require considerable time and effort commitments from
our group, but they are both well worth it, and, are events we enjoy
We should also be proud that we provide these services to the Hanover and greater VT-NH communities.
I would like to thank all the Lions that participated in both of
these events; they were great fun, and I enjoyed working with everyone
in the group.
The Hanover Lions Club has dinner meetings on the third Thursday of every month from September through June at 6 p.m. at the Hanover Inn or at EBA's. We also have a holiday party in December and a summer picnic in June. In addition, we volunteer for various community and fundraising events during the year.
Monthly Board Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month.
