The Rockton Lions of Rockton, IL have been serving the state-line area since 1938 , and we aren't slowing down any time soon! With a membership of 80+ we have many local fund-raisers and service projects such as Candy Day, Flower Day, Christmas Auction, delivering Wimpy's Fund gifts, hearing screening, blood drives, providing eye glasses to area children, downtown planting projects, and Old Settlers Days to name a few. The profits from the fund raisers are funneled directly back into our community serving the needs of other organizations and individuals, while focusing on sight and sound related disabilities.
As of October, 2015 we have chartered the Hononegah Leo Club. The Leo Club is open to all Hononegah High School Students. Meetings are twice a month on Wednesdays at 8 am and 3:15pm. Projects include Wimpy's Fund toy drive, Special Olympics, Old Settlers Days and more!! We have a special focus on integrating life skills and general education students together to help in community projects. See faculty advisor Justin Wieman or Lions Club liaison advisor Tami Verstraete for more information! This is a great opportunity for the youth in our town to learn about service and leadership!
