In The Community
Welcome to the Dexter Lions. We are a community service group who volunteer our time to help others and have fun doing it! The Lions are comprised of men, women, and couples in the Dexter area who presently range in age from 18 to 90 years old. The Dexter Lions Club is a group of service-minded citizens who are interested in doing volunteer work to improve their communities. To become a Lion is to become an active volunteer, a member of a respected international organization, a leader in your community and a friend to people in need.
The local and international Lions are dedicated to be Knights Of The Blind as charged by Helen Keller early in the 20th century. Diabetes, drug awareness and children's programs are a big part of the Lions Club interests as well.
The Dexter Lions first responsibility is to our local community. Yet we have enough resources to support state, national & international activities. Being a member of the Dexter Lions Club is a personal commitment each of us makes with great pride.
DEXTER LOINS HAND OUT COLORING BOOKS & CRAYONS TO ALL DEXTER KINDERGARTNERS
