Holliston Lions Club: Fighting Preventable Blindness

When Lions were issued a challenge by Helen Keller to pick up her mantle and become “Knights of the Blind”, the Holliston Lions Club was not even a thought. In fact, at that time in 1925, Lions in Massachusetts were part of District 33, which contained seven clubs in Massachusetts, one in Maine. Massachusetts Lions had no specific eye programs, they typically handled issues with blindness within their own Clubs, or District. That changed in 1950.

Holliston Lions to End Year with a Bang!

The Holliston Lions Club’s year will come to an end on June 30th. This is perfect timing since their annual carnival is going to be in town from June 26 to June 29th with the carnival ending as it has for many years with a firework display on June 29th at 9:30pm. More details can be found on the Holliston Lions website. Thanks for Ongoing Support The Holliston Lions Club is fortunate to have annual sponsors at different levels who provide us with funding that is desperately needed to continue serving our community. In addition to our annual sponsors, we would also like to thank those who have helped us on single events like the Winning o’ the Green raffle. Businesses from across Holliston help make this event one of the largest fundraising events of the year. The proceeds from this event help us provide scholarships, support the Holliston Pantry Shelf and more. Without your donations of money, services and items, we could not continue to do the work we do.

Holliston Lions - Service With a Mission

The Holliston Lions Club performs many service projects and fundraising events. Annual events like our $10,000 raffle go to support many important programs not only in Holliston but across Massachusetts and internationally. On a state-wide basis, the majority of our “out-of-Holliston” donations go to support Massachusetts Lions Eye Research Fund, Inc. This is no accident, in fact, it is part of our overall mission which was a result of a challenge issued by Massachusetts native Helen Keller.

In Celebration of Women's History Month: History of Women in Lions Clubs

Amy Porter, Pam Zicko, Linda Ahronian, Louise Kirkpatrick and Lisa Zais. Residents of Holliston will recognize these women’s names because they have all been recognized as Citizen of the Year for Holliston. But there’s something you may not know. These women also are part of the world’s largest service organization, Lions Clubs International (LCI). The Holliston Lions Club became part of LCI in 1941. At that time, women were not allowed to be part of Lions, despite the fact Lions obtained their mission — eradicating blindness — from a woman, specifically, Helen Keller. It is also worth noting that the “Lions Toast,” which is unique to Massachusetts and reads simply “Not above you, not beneath you but with you” was written by the wife of a Lions Club member in Lynn, Massachusetts.
