The Oscoda Lions Club is comprised of individuals from all walks of life who have the common goal of SERVICE to the blind, the needy, and to the community in general.
The Oscoda Lions Club currently has 60 members who are community-minded. We are serving the community of Oscoda Township in the northeast section of Michigan along Lake Huron. We've consistently grown since we chartered on October 3, 1953, all thanks to the helping hands of this amazing community!
The general objectives of the Lions Clubs are as follows:
To serve and assist the blind, and those among us who may be impaired due to a lack of sight.
To create and foster a spirit of understanding among the people of the world.
To promote the principle of good government and good citizenship.
To provide a forum for the open discussion of all matters of public interest, provided, however, that partisan politics and sectarian religion shall not be debated by club members.
To take an active interest in the civic, cultural, social, and moral welfare of the community.
To foster fellowship, friendship, and understanding among its membership.
To encourage service-minded people to serve their community without personal financial reward, and to promote high ethical standards in the community in both public and private endeavors.
A nonprofit is as strong as the community that holds it up. Together, we can do more than we can do alone. Let's bring our abilities and passions together to affect real change. There are many ways to join us and support our mission. Contact us to find out more about volunteer opportunities, fundraising events, and ways that you can get our message to your friends and family.

The Lions Clubs trace their beginnings to one man, Melvin Jones, who in 1917 with the leaders of 23 independent service clubs in Chicago, formed an association known as the Lions Clubs. Three years later, in 1920, a Lions Club in downtown Detroit sponsored a Lions Club in Windsor, Canada, thereby creating the International Association of Lions Clubs.
