North Park Lions Club members having a roaring good time making friends and serving their local community

Ever since it was established in 1926, the North Park Lions Club has been a friend to a wide variety of organizations, schools, programs and causes through its monetary donations and the toil of its members.
“Originally I went to the club thinking it was good networking for the (San Diego) Center for the Blind,” says Kim Gibbens, the center’s executive director. “But the more I attended meetings, the more I realized what a special group of people this was. When I became the treasurer, which I did for almost 10 years, I really found out how much this club serves the North Park community.
During 2010, the North Park Lions contributed more than $28,000 to a variety of programs, schools and organizations. The beneficiaries included the North Park Little League, local schools — Central, Jefferson, McKinley and Garfield — and Meals-on-Wheels, among others. The club also spent more than $17,000 as part of its White Cane budget.

We Missed You Last Wednesday!

In a special meeting, Scott Leason of City Heights spoke about how he was shot 15 years ago during a robbery at a convenience store where he worked, rendering him blind. For several years, he has taken classes in water skiing at the aquatic center so he can compete.

“I was already slalom skiing, but they put me on a wakeboard and I'm doing tricks now,” Leason said. “Without the Mission Bay Aquatic Center I wouldn't be achieving these goals and dreams of mine.”
