The mission of the Naperville Noon Lions Club is simply expressed in their Motto “We Serve.” The club is comprised of local men and women, who wish to make a difference in their community.
Over the past year $190,000+ has been donated to local organizations, including many thousands directed to individuals through our Social Services Committee for needed eye/ear exams, glasses, hearing aids and other needed services and equipment. Diabetes strips are also donated to School Districts 203 and 204 for students to use during school.
Each year, the club hosts several fundraising events to raise money, including: Candy Days, a Summer Raffle, Funnel Cakes at Ribfest, and their signature Thanksgiving Day 5K Turkey Trot.
This year’s race starts at 8 AM at Naperville Central High School. Event and registration information is available at https://napervilleturkeytrot.com/
Anyone interested in joining the club can contact the club at email@example.com. The club meets every Tuesday at Braconi’s Restaurant at Ogden and Royal St. George in Naperville at 12:15 p.m. for lunch.
