Lions support “Night Sight” for LifeFlight of Maine
The Camden Lions Club recently presented LifeFlight of Maine with a donation of $2,000 to help purchase night vision goggles.
LifeFlight implemented night vision goggles on its two helicopters several years ago, greatly improving the safety and reliability of all flights after dark, which make up about 40% of the organization’s total transports.
Carter Duke, the young man in the accompanying photo, was a recipient of LifeFlight’s services when he wasn’t even a year old—lifeflighted from Pen Bay Medical Center to Eastern Maine Medical Center.
Next Meeting: September 19, 2017
We invite you to visit often to discover all the ways we serve our community. We take great inspiration from this special place Where The Mountains Meet The Sea, and our members work hard to preserve quality of life through a variety of service initiatives.
We hope that you will contact us with any questions you might have about our Club, its programs, or how you can join us in serving our community and the world at-large. We Are Lions. We Serve.

Camden Lions Sponsor Camden Hills Regional High School Ice Hockey Team
The Camden Lions will provide sponsorship this season to the CHRHS ice hockey team through a full page ad to be featured in the team's official 2016-17 program.
The ad features images from 2015-16 season victories en route to a playoff run that extended through to the semi finals. The sponsorship is of particular importance in that ice hockey is one of the sports programs not fully funded at Camden Hills.
Home games are played at the Midcoast Recreation Center on Route 90 in Rockport. CHRHS ice hockey games make for a fun and exciting outing -- be sure to dress warmly. Get information on Facebook at: Camden Hills Windjammers Ice Hockey.
