The Newmarket Lions Club is a network of community minded volunteers. We provide financial assistance to individuals in need- such as help paying for prescription drugs, eye glasses, mobility aids, etc; we help out schools in need of funding for things like delousing, breakfast programs, end of year trips for students in need; and we run yearly programs for the betterment of the Newmarket Community. The following are programs we run every year:
For the past 89 years the Newmarket Lions Club has served our community with distinction. Charter members built a school for children with exceptionalities; donated land for a park; and started the Christmas hamper program during WWII. Over the many years our club has made many major contributions to our hospital rehabilitation center; the Stronach Cancer Centre; and the Margaret Bahen Hospice. These are just a few of the activities of our club. We strive to help the less fortunate in our Newmarket community.
This year we are celebrating our Music Festival 60th anniversary and our Santa Fund 75th year.
