Lake City Lion’s Serving the Community Since 1940
There are so many people in the Community who are not aware of the incredible and positive impact that the Lake City Lions Club have had on the Lake City community. With the upcoming 12th Annual Olympic Hills Pancake Breakfast to benefit the school hosted by the Lions we thought we would share a little bit of the fantastic work the organization has done and continues to do in the neighborhood.
- They built the Lake City Community Center through donations and volunteer efforts
- Purchased a Medic Car for the Seattle Fire Department
- Donated funds to the City of Seattle to build Albert Davis Park
- Traded land to the City to build the Lake City Library
- Built Virgil Flaim Park
Their work continues today supporting North Helpline, Sacajawea Elementary, Olympic Hills Elementary and Nathan Hale High School. This past year they recycled 1500 pairs of eyeglasses and 50 hearing aids and continue to provide eyeglasses and hearing aids for those in need. The Lions provide a health screening unit to three elementary schools for vision and hearing screening. They provided over 200 dictionaries to third graders at four local schools. They are the ones that hang the flags along Lake City Way and work to keep the planters stocked and maintained along the business corridor. They regularly hold the Lake City Flea Market and are the group behind the Annual Fright Night event. They award scholarships and host the Annual “Back to School Barbecue at Virgil Flaim in support of families served through the North Seattle Family Resource Center. From painting out graffiti to awarding a handful of scholarships each year the work they do is invaluable.
As you can see, we are very lucky to have the Lake City Lions in our Community. Next time you see a Lion please be sure to thank them for all they do and have done for Lake City. The Club is always looking for new members. If you are interested you can contact Gordy Smith at (206)639-8813
