We are global.
We’re part of the largest service organization in the world. We participate in all sorts of efforts, but ever since 1925 when Helen Keller challenged us to become “Knights of the Blind” our main focus has been sight.
We make a difference.
At the local level, we have made a difference in a variety of ways. We helped to fund the Nan Jones Kimball playground onNorth Road, theRoyalRiverbridge on theBeth Condon Parkway, purchased equipment for Yarmouth Senior Housing and the bleachers at the Turf Field, donated life-saving AEDs to Yarmouth schools and the Merrill Memorial Library and much more. We donate the money we raise in our fundraisers to local worthy causes like Maine Handicapped Skiing, Camp Sunshine, The Iris Network, and the Center for Grieving Children to name just a few.
In fact, that is our motto. We award scholarships to local students. We adopt needy families at Christmas, provide fuel assistance and donate to the local food bank. We sponsor a Cub Scout group, a Little League team, Girls State and a Yarmouth High School recognition program. We collect and recycle eyeglasses and provide free eye exams, eyeglasses and hearing aids for the needy
We have fun.
Our club meets on the first and third Monday of each month for dinner, a meeting and a program. Throughout the year, you’ll also find us having fun selling Christmas trees on the town’s Memorial Green and selling fried food favorites at the Clam Festival.
