  • _ The 2021 Mattapoisett Lions Triathlon:
     

    The Mattapoisett Lions Club, sponsored by the Fairhaven Lions Club, was chartered in 1953 with 30 charter members.  Our first King Lion was Lester Texeira, Russell Tinkham was Treasurer and Arthur Baker, Secretary.  Members of the Bradley, Briggs, Crampton, DeCoffe, Heuberger, Rodericks, Sherman, Sylvia families among others were charter members of the Mattapoisett Lions Club. 
     

    Our motto is:  We Serve

     

    The Mattapoisett Lions Club has been responsible for many projects in our community over the years.  The Shipyard Park gazebo, the covered picnic table structures at Town Beach and at Ned’s Point, and the tennis courts adjacent to Center School.  More recent projects include the shed at Dunford Park for use by the local Boy Scout troop and wheelchair  ramps at private homes in town.


    For years we hosted an event for children  during the holidays -- The Candy Cane Fair.  In more recent years, we participate with the Town of Mattapoisett in the annual Tree Lighting at Shipyard Park where we collect unwrapped toys and canned goods for those in need.  The annual Senior Dinner is also a highlight for the more senior folks in our community.  In 2016, the Mattapoisett Lions Club started hosting the Fall Free Family Fun Festival, also at Shipyard Park. This event draws people from all over who enjoy hay rides, games, music, a pumpkin patch and more on a crisp fall day.

    Annually, we hold a 
    peace poster contest for students at Old Hammondtown School as part of an International Lions Club initiative, and a speech contest for high school students. 

    We also assist residents in need in various ways by providing them with eyeglasses and hearing aids, making donations to local food pantries and collecting goods for local service men and women serving overseas.


    Today, we are 62 members strong.  Our major fundraising effort is the week-long Harbor Days event at Shipyard Park.  This event has been operating for more than 20 years, but it would not be a success without the support of the Mattapoisett community, including the Mattapoisett Town Hall, neighbors, the local Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and inumerable volunteers.

     

    Other fundraising events and community projects include:

    • Collecting used eyeglasses to be tagged, catalogued and shipped overseas to bring the gift of sight to those who cannot afford to buy eyeglasses
    • Pennies for Sight canisters on display in many local businesses collect change to help fund eye research locally
    • Aiding community residents in crisis by building handicap ramps 

    It is important to note that 100% of all monies donated go to the targeted need. All Club administrative costs are covered by member dues.

     

    The Mattapoisett Lions Club was the first club in Massachusetts in 2006 to sign on as a Model Club for Campaign Sightfirst II, an International Lions Club initiative to end preventable blindness around the world. 

     

    The Mattapoisett Lions Club is a fine group of men and women who are community minded and who believe in reaching out to help those in need.
