July 19, 2017
Join the Steamboat Ski Town Lions Club Thursday at Sunpies Bistro, for it's Third Thirsty Thursday Watering Hole. This meeting is open to everyone and is a great way to get to know a little bit about the Lions Club in an informal atmosphere. Everyone is invited.
The Ski Town Lions Club is Steamboat's oldest civic organization, chartered in 1923. Meetings are open to members, as well as those who are interested in learning more about the Lions Club.
The Steamboat Ski Town Lions Club is made up of civic-minded men and women of all ages who identify needs within the Steamboat community and work to fulfill them.
Through the years, the group has planned or participated in numerous events and programs. It collects eyeglasses for those in need throughout the world and provides free vision screening for youth in Routt County schools and at health fairs. It supports United Way Day of Caring and the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life. It provides scholarships for high school seniors and funding for local youth groups, such as Rocky Mountain Youth Corps.
Highlight events include its annual Thanksgiving turkey drive, highway cleanup days, participation in the Rocky Mountain Mustang Roundup, Fourth of July Pancake Breakfast and Hot Air Balloon Rodeo. The club's largest fundraiser is its annual Christmas tree sale in November and December.
