Our motto is "We Serve". We are an active club sponsoring the following events annually:
Lions Club Scholarships: If you are interested in this scholarship, please fill out and return the 2023 Scholarship Application to: Raymond Lions Club PO Box 1057 Raymond ME 04071.
Applications must be postmarked no later than May 15, 2023. The amount to be awarded has yet to be determined and depends on the generosity of folks who donate cans and bottles to our collection sites.
American flags: We hang American Flags on route 302 and Main Street at specified sites before Memorial Day, then take them down after Veterans Day.
Vision Support: We collect used eye glasses to reuse for people in Third World countries. There is a collection box in the Raymond Village Library and at the Raymond Town Office. We provide financial assistance to obtain eyeglasses or an eye exam for Raymond residents who qualify based on the application.
Ongoing Bottle Drive: Our primary fundraiser is our ongoing bottle drive. We have two bottle collection sites; Raymond Town Hall parking lot (401 Webbs Mills Rd) and the Jordan Bay Animal Hospital driveway(1242 Roosevelt Trl). Half the proceeds fund the Lions Club Scholarships and the other half goes to multiple organizations such as these Raymond based organizations: Raymond Food Pantry, Raymond Village Library, Veterans Memorial Park, Raymond Fire & Rescue, as well as many other regional non profit groups.
If you are interested in participating or supporting any of these activities, please contact Caryl Gilman at 627-5073.
