Seekonk Lions Club News


The holiday season is here with a New Year approaching. 2021, was a successful year for the Seekonk Lions Club with 2022 looking to be just as fruitful. Our Annual Oktoberfest raised over $4,000. Our annual Golf Tournament at Wannamoisett Country Club brought in close to $10,000. And, of course our world famous clam boils adding to our kitty.

On December 11, President Gary Sagar presented a check totaling $1500 to the Doorways Food Pantry at the old North School. “Every year we donate $1000 to Doorways, but his year we added $500 more due to shortage of food at the pantry”.

“The Seekonk Lions are will be donating $10,000 to LCIF ( Lions International) providing aid to communities affected by severe weather and deadly tornadoes across the Midwest recently,” said Sagar. “Our thoughts for our fellow Americans in these communities could not be more giving and strong”.

The Seekonk Lions enjoyed a special end of the year get together and dinner with entertainment by Bomb Shell Betty. Betty has been a hit on the local circuit playing the American Legions in Rehoboth, Seekonk and other RI Venues. Betty has a voice with energy and tenacity. Make sure to see Betty when she is in town!

Please save the date. Taste of the Town presented by the Seekonk Lions will be held on Monday evening April 18, 2022. Stay Tuned to the next edition of the Seekonk Reporter for more details! Also, do not forget our Annual Doug Allan Fishing Derby. A fun time every year. Moreover, our world famous clam boils will be looking good and tasty as always!

Wishing everyone a healthy and happy New Year from the Seekonk Lions Club, see you soon!
