Destination of Recycled Eyeglasses
Twice a year, a few members take thousands of eyeglasses collected by the Sound Shore Lion Clubs to the Lions Recycling Center in Trenton.

LM Present Scholarships to MHS & Rye Neck HS Seniors
The LM Lions Club awarded two scholarships as part of its annual high school community service essay contest. Mamaroneck High School senior Shannon Gallaher and Rye Neck High School senior Kimichika Irie were the winners.

Sedona's "Dine Out for Charity"
The LM Lions partnered with Mamaroneck’s Sedona Taphouse’s Mondays Dine Out for Charity promotion, teaming up in support of the STEM Summer Enrichment Program in June and The Fuller Center in July.
