Fredericktown Lions Club

 Fredericktown Lions Club

Have you ever stopped on the Square during Trick or Treat for doughnuts and cider? Did you know that the local Lions Club provides these? This is some of the many community service projects that the Fredericktown Lions Club provide. Who Are Lions? They are people like you and me that meet the needs of local communities and the world. The 1.35 million members of the volunteer organization in 207 countries and geographic areas are different in many ways, but share a core belief - community is what we make it. Fredericktown has had a Lions Club for over 74 years. If you bought a bratwurst from the Lions at the 4TH of July Celebration or during the Tomato Show, you have helped us raise money for our projects.

Money raised from the concession stands are donated to various organizations. Locally, the money we raise is used to pay for eye glasses for children or adults who cannot afford them; we help support state and national site and hearing organizations; and sponsor Fredericktown School’s Leo Club, a youth community service organization. Twice a year, Lion members join with the Leos in picking up litter off the State Route 13 bypass, and enjoy pizza when everyone is finished. Lions are seen throughout the community in many ways. Lion members help with Hot Meals on Monday nights, some volunteer at Interchurch Social Services, some help set up the Tomato Show parade; others ring the bells for Salvation Army in December; and some help with the Christmas Auction during the community’s Christmas walk. The Lions Club meets the 3rd Monday of the month, at 6:45 p.m. at Fredericktown United Methodist Church for a meal and speaker, and a short business meeting. The Lions Club Board meets the 1st Monday of the month. During June, July and August the Lions meet on the 1st and 3rd Mondays at Merrin Park for cookout. Lions Club is an easy and great way to give back to the community. If you are interested in being a Lion, please call President Danny Lamb at 740-398-0797 or

Morris James at 740-694-6691.
