The Dayton Noon Lions Club was chartered in 1988.
Through its volunteer service to the Dayton community, the Dayton Noon Lions provide eyeglasses for children and adults in need, send children with disabilities to the Texas Lions Camp, give scholarships to graduating seniors, and serve the community and have fun.
To fund these services in the community, the Dayton Noon Lions holds an annual pancake supper where everyone in the community is invited to an all-you-can-eat feast of pancakes, sausage, juice and specialty toppings.
The Dayton Noon Lions also partners with the Dayton Chamber of Commerce in the “Flags Over Dayton” program. American flags are placed in front of homes and businesses on certain holidays in exchange for a small fee. If you are interested in participating in the flag program, contact the Chamber at 936-257-2393.
The Lions meet at noon every first and third Wednesday of the month at Texas Kountry Kitchen at 313 N. Main St., Dayton.
