The Oxford Lions Club was chartered in 1947 and is dedicated to one of the defining causes of Lions Club International: to provide programs and assistance to aid people who are blind or visually impaired and to work at eliminating preventable and reversible blindness.
In 2014, with community support for their annual Christmas Tree Sale in the Uptown Park, the Halloween Parade, and The Lion Golfer Golf Scramble at Hueston Woods, the Oxford Lions Club returned over $15,000 to a variety of social service agencies, civic organizations, and service clubs for sight saving and community projects in Oxford and Butler County.
• $4,500 for vision assistance to 37 needy adults and school children within the Talawanda School District.
• $1000 to the Lane Library in Oxford to supplement it's large print and audio book collection.
• two $1,000 scholarships to members of the Talawanda High School Senior class in recognition of their community service activities.
• Two $250 scholarships for participants in the Butler County Chiefs of Police “Respect for Law Camp,”
• and support for numerous other school and community programs.
The Lions Club also collected nearly 1,000 pairs of used eyeglasses from optometrists and opticians in Butler County and sent them to an Ohio organization that reconditions and distributes them to needy people around the world.
Beyond Oxford, the Lions Club provided
• a $1000 grant for the Oxford Family Resource Center to assist their clients in carrying out daily activities, educational pursuits, employment and enjoying a better quality of life.
• a $2000 award to the Mercy Health St. Raphael Social Service Center in Hamilton for vision screenings, eye exams, eyeglasses and other services to 10 needy adults.
• a $1000 grant to Middletown’s Kiwanis Club in support to support vision services for 9 Middletown Schools students.
• $3000 award to the Cincinnati Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired to provide low vision services, adaptive training, early childhood intervention, and other specialized services for clients of all ages in western Butler County.
Thank you to the Oxford Community. With your support, the Oxford Lions Club can be, as Helen Keller challenged all Lions Clubs in 1925, "knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness".
