The club celebrated its 74th year in Lake Oswego, having served local people in need since Oct. 16, 1946.

And while many of the club's fundraisers have pivoted this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the club has gotten creative in finding ways to serve the community.

The Lions have provided more than 3,300 fabric masks and are now giving out mask-making kits to local businesses.

The club serves the community in several ways, most notably for sight, hearing and disaster relief. They help provide eyeglasses to people who cannot afford them and are involved with helping people get tested for hearing aids. The club has also been involved with donating money toward scholarships for high school seniors, various relief programs and more.

To help celebrate the anniversary, people can contribute tax-deductible donations in multiples of 74 — 74 cents, $7.40 or $74 — or any amount desired.

Checks can be sent to the Lake Oswego Lions at P.O. Box 163, Lake Oswego, OR 97034.
