Norfolk Lions Club was established in 1951 as an entity through
which a volunteer ambulance service could be established and
maintained. To this day, providing excellent emergency medical
service to Norfolk and its surrounding towns remains the main
focus of our club.
In Norfolk, we provide funds for eye examinations for children
unable to afford them, support for Project Graduation (a
drug and alcohol free celebration for Regional #7 high school seniors),
and scholarships for Norfolk students.
We also sponsor an Ambulance Explorer Group (made up of dedicated
teenagers who train with the ambulance volunteers and respond to
calls), send 2 or more high school students to spend a day at the
UN, lend medical equipment to needy residents, and provide the
flags that are given out at the Norfolk Memorial Day parade.
In addition to our local projects, the Norfolk Lions join with
Lions Clubs throughout the
world to raise money to provide funds for research and aid for
people with vision and hearing problems.
