Lions Club charter night

Thursday, April 12, 2018 7:52AM

The Jaffrey-Rindge Centennial Lions Club will celebrate its charter night on April 21.

The club has been operating as a branch club under the Souhegan Lions Club since May 2015 and has finally reached the 20 member threshold to become a full-fledged club. 

The Jaffrey-Rindge Lions Club was initially chartered on April 22, 1952, but disbanded on June 19, 2012 after a lack of member involvement and enrollment.

The returning club plans to continue its involvement in children’s eye testing by working with children in Jaffrey Grade School and Rindge Memorial School, but hopes to expand to other grades. The club has been testing Jaffrey Head Start. 

The club will also continue fundraising by participating in the Jaffrey townwide yard sale and putting on another murder mystery dinner in the fall.

The Jaffrey-Rindge Centennial Lions Club will meet on the second Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. at Terrapin Glass on Hadley Road in Jaffrey. 

Lions Club International is a service organization with nearly 1.3 million members and about 45,000 clubs in over 200 countries around the world. Lions clubs have helped the blind and visually impaired and made strong commitments to community service since 1917.
