More Volunteers Doing More Community Work In More Places than Any Other Service Organization

When it comes to meeting challenges, our response is simple. WE SERVE. In 206 countries, in hospitals and senior centers, in regions battered by natural disasters, in schools and eyeglass recycling centers. Lions are doing community volunteer work, helping, leading, planning and supporting. Because we are local, we can serve the unique needs of the Presque Isle community, and because we are global, we can address challenges that go beyond our borders.

We want everyone to see a better tomorrow. That's why we support sight programs and services including vision screenings, eye banks, and eyeglass recycling, providing eye care services to those at risk of losing their sight and raising donations through campaigns like SightFirst and Campaign SightFirst II.

We believe everyone deserves a healthy life. From providing health programs that focus on hearing loss, to supporting efforts to control and prevent diabetes and measles, we're working to improve the health of children and adults around the world.

We empower the next generation. Whether it's providing youth volunteer opportunities and leadership experiences in a Leo Club or sharing a message of peace through our Peace Poster contest, our youth programs invest in the future by reaching out to young people.

We serve local communities and protect the planet. From performing hands-on community work and service projects, to providing emergency assistance, our community and environment programs improve our communities and protect the environment.

The Presque Isle Lions Club will hold its 43rd annual live lobster and prime rib dinner from 4 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, May 14th at the American Legion on Highway W, just West of Presque Isle. This fun and delicious event for the whole family started as a birthday celebration for one of the Lions and has grown into one of the most popular dinners in the Northwoods.

This is a unique event where live lobsters are flown in from Maine and then freshly cooked to order. The evening is filled with a festive atmosphere and provides a terrific social event. Funds raised go towards vital Lions programs that support our community.

In addition, numerous gift baskets and other fun items will be raffled off. There will also be a 50/50 cash raffle that evening.

To reserve a spot at this dinner contact any Presque Isle Lion member or call 715-686-2073. Reservations must be in by May 7. Lobster tickets are $40 and prime rib tickets are $30.

The sale is planned for August 6, 2022, a single day event at the Presque Isle Community Center.

Due to various factors, the sale will have a few differences from previous years. Limited space and staffing will require the club to limit the type of items that will be accepted. The goal will be to focus on items that have a higher dollar value. A list of example items that will be accepted can be found at Lions Rummage Sale Items.

If you have questions on whether a particular item would benefit the Lions cause, please call 715-892-9811 and we will make a determination regarding acceptance.  It is especially important to call ahead of time if you have any physically large items you wish to donate.

The collection point will be on Hwy “W” West of Presque Isle which is the same as prior years.  Drop offs will only be accepted on Saturdays from 9 am until noon, starting May 28, 2022 through July 30, 2022.

The date is November 5th, 2022, from 10 am to 2 pm at the Presque Isle Community Center, School Loop Road, Presque Isle. Vendors with handmade Christmas gifts, jewelry, baked goods and so much more. A soup and sandwich lunch will be available at 11:00 am. The lunch will consist of sandwich and a choice of 3 different soups.
