Pendleton Lions Club | For The Times-Post
If you are interested in volunteering, leading project, networking and having fun, you can do all of this and more as a member of the Pendleton Lions Club.
As a Pendleton Lions Club member, you can join a local group of service-minded men and women who are already doing volunteer work to support our great Pendleton community.
It is easy to join the Pendleton Lions Club — contact a member and ask to be invited to a club meeting.
There is a business meeting the second Tuesday of every month at 6:30 p.m. at the Falls Park Community Building.
On the fourth Tuesday of the month from August through June, there is a program meeting.
The program could pertain the Lions Club activities or the Pendleton community.
You may ask “How do I contact a Lions Club member?”
Well, we are everywhere — at the June Jamboree, Concerts in the Park throughout the summer, serving fresh grilled corn and chicken sandwiches at the Heritage Fair in September, Fishing Derby at the lighthouse pond and/or serving drinks at Pendleton Heights High School Top 10 Dinner.
You could ask a local Boy Scout from Troop 232 — the troop our club has sponsored since their charter more than 90 years ago.
You could ask the town employees at Pendleton Town Hall, where the club has helped by purchasing some of the benches and all of the trash cans placed on the downtown streets.
You could ask the Pendleton Police Department, where we supported their bicycle patrols.
You could ask at Falls Park, where we built the Community Building, supported the gazebo project, supported the playground project, fully funded the rebuilding of the old fountain and fully funded the refurbishing the vestibule on the Community Building.
You could ask the Pendleton Fire Department, where we paid for the purchasing of thermal-imaging cameras.
You could ask someone with the Pendleton Ambulance, for which we purchased some automated external defibrillators for distribution in the community and the Mobile Dispatching Terminal for the paramedic squad.
You could ask Friends for Paws, whom we have supported by purchasing items they need or paying on their veterinary bills.
You could ask More Than Conquerors, which we have supported by providing a meal for a movie night, Amazon gift cards for use in purchasing needed items, and gas gift cards.
You could ask the school nurses, whom we help by testing the eyes of every first-, third-, fifth- and eighth-grader, saving them a lot of time satisfying a state requirement.
We also adopt a few families at Christmastime, so the children have Christmas gifts to open on Christmas Day.
Just ask and you will find a Pendleton Lions Club member eager to invite you to a meeting and help you join us in supporting the Pendleton community.
