Woodbury Lions Club Donates PPE to Local Ambulance Association
 

To assist local first responders during the current pandemic, on May 3, The Woodbury Lions Club donated masks and disinfectant concentrate to the Woodbury Volunteer Ambulance Association at their headquarters at 426 Main Street North, in Woodbury.

A grant from the Lions Club International Foundation for $30,000 to the Lions Clubs in Connecticut to provide emergency responders with personal protection equipment was shared among the over 150 Lions club in the state. The Woodbury Lions were able to provide 200 masks and two gallons of disinfectant concentrate, which yields eighty gallons of disinfectant, to the Ambulance Association.
Overall, in the state, the Lions Clubs were able to distribute 1500 KN-95 masks, 6000 3-ply masks for general use, 40 gallons of disinfectant concentrate, and 17,000 vinyl gloves to first responders and hospitals in Connecticut.

The Woodbury Lions Club, founded in 1936, has supported the town of Woodbury through scholarships to graduating local high school seniors, support of the Woodbury Community Services Council’s food and fuel banks, and various other charities, including Regional Hospice, the Lions Low Vision and Eye Research centers, the Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation and the American School for the Deaf.

Lions Club, International, the largest service organization in the world, has over 1.4 million members in over 46,000 clubs in 200+ countries and territories. The Lions Club International Foundation is the charitable arm of the organization, having awarded over $1 billion since its inception in 1968 for humanitarian relief and service, and is funded entirely by donations by Lions Club members, and corporate donations.


POSTPONED - 42nd Annual Car Show and Summerfest

August 23, 2020, Hollow Park, Woodbury, CT

We've decided, in the interest of public safety, to postpone our 42nd Annual Car Show to August 23, 2020. We expect that restrictions on public gatherings will be lifted by then, so we're moving ahead to make this the best show ever on the new date.

Sponsorship opportunities are available, running from less than $100 to our Platinum Sponsor level at $5000. Information on the benefits of each level are available by contacting WoodburyCTLions@gmail.com. We also have space available in our Vendor Area--just $25 for a 10x10 space. Print out our registration form, and mail it with your check to the address on the form. Sorry, no food vendors are allowed. 

So, what do we have on tap?

Like food (who doesn't)? Seven food trucks are planning to serve all day, with everything from pizza, barbecue, gourmet grilled cheese, and ice cream. Thirsty? Visit our craft beer tent. 

Our headliner on the stage is yacht-rock band Anchor Management. Seeing this band live is worth the price of admission. Along with them, three other musical acts that will cater to everyone's taste will play all day.

There's a lot more, and we'll be updating you with details as we get closer to the show. Until then, mark your calendars and make it a point to spend the day with the Woodbury Lions Club at their 42nd Annual Car Show and Summerfest.

See What Your Support Does!

In 2016, the Woodbury Lions Club donated $10,000 to the Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation to help them reach their goal of $30,000 to receive a matching grant from The Lions Club Internation Foundation. The $60,000 Fidelco received was used to purchase new vans to assist in getting dogs and clients together. At the Lions statewide MidWinter conference in February of this year, the vans were displayed. Here are Woodbury Lions Zone Chair Frank Longo and LEOs Liason Ken Dechino pointing to the club name on the back of one of the new vans. The Woodbury Lions Club could not have made this happen without the continuing support of our community.
