The Camden Lions Club is made up of dedicated men and women who quietly serve the greater Camden/Rockport/Lincolnville area of Mid Coast Maine.
The Club is part of Lions Clubs International – the world’s largest and most active service club organization, with 1.35 million members in more than 46,000 clubs worldwide. The Camden Lions Club is one of the longest standing Lions Clubs, having been chartered on August 14, 1929.
We are one of 44 Lions Clubs serving Maine as Lions District
41-I, and is one of 279 Lions Clubs serving Maine and
Atlantic Canada as Lions Multiple District 41.
We meet year-round on the first and third Tuesdays of each
month at the Camden Lions Den on Lions Lane in Camden,
Maine. We gather at 6:00 PM for some fellowship and have
a home-style dinner served at 6:30 PM, followed by our
business meeting. Meals are prepared and served by
members serving on the Dinner Committee. First meeting
of the month generally features a program and speaker.
The general public is invited and encouraged to join us for
dinner and to attend the meeting that follows. It’s a
wonderful way to learn about our organization and meet people from, and serving, your community.
Camden Lions Are a Special Breed
Lions are men and women, just like you, who have decided to give back to their communities by dedicating themselves to serving people in need, and meeting those needs in an efficient and caring way. We believe that by working with others so dedicated, we can accomplish more than would be possible by acting alone. Our motto is “We Serve.” Lions are part of a global service network, doing whatever is necessary to help our local communities.
As members of the Camden Lions, we are also members of Maine Sight & Hearing Association, Inc., Maine Blind Bowlers Association, Inc., and Lions Clubs International – the world’s largest and most active service club organization.
Our members cherish the friendship and fellowship within the Club, but also feel a close kinship with fellow Lions in more than 200 countries and geographical locations throughout the world. Camden Lions are patriotic – giving allegiance to the United States while recognizing that all men and women throughout the world must one day learn to live in peace. We care to the needs of the Greater Camden area, but we also define community as the wider world. Our members dedicate themselves to maintaining the highest ethical and moral standards – both within the Club and in our personal lives. While we Camden Lions are serious about our commitment to humanitarian service, we like having fun along the way. I hope to see you soon.
Yours in Lionism,
King Lion Robert Oxton
This History is dedicated to those Camden Lions – past and present – who have made this record possible.
