“We Serve” is the Lions motto. Our club serves our community by providing college scholarships each year to 5 deserving students, supporting our local food pantry, the Yarmouth Community Garden, the Merrill Memorial Library, the Iris Network, Eagle Scout projects, Little League, Christmas families, heating assistance and numerous other local organizations.
Lions are devoted to helping with vision needs for Yarmouth people in need. We also offer some help for hearing aids.
We have several primary fundraisers each year to fund our philanthropy. We sell fried seafood at the Yarmouth Clam Festival each July, and we sell Christmas trees that fund the scholarships on the village green each December. We also sell Christmas wreaths that fund heating assistance.
Each December we provide the young children a very special visit with Santa down on the village green. Santa’s chalet appears the first weekend in December. He and Mrs. Claus welcome each child to come into their chalet to talk with Santa.
Yarmouth Lions meet the first and third Monday of each month, October thru May, at the Muddy Rudder at 5:00pm. We meet the third Monday in September, and in the winter, we meet once in January and once in February.
