About Us

The Newmarket Lions Club received its charter as a member of The International Association of Lions Clubs (Lions International) in March 1931. To be able to understand the Newmarket Lions Club, you must first understand a little about Lions International, the relation between the Newmarket Lions Club, Lions International and the Canadian Lions Foundation.

LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR HISTORY

Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centers throughout the world clean and store usable recycled eyeglasses.  

Volunteers at the recycling center carefully package the prepared glasses and store them until they are required for eyeglass dispensing missions. Glasses that are not suitable for reuse are recycled for scrap.  At the mission site, eye care professionals and trained Lion and Leo volunteers perform vision screenings and dispense the appropriate recycled glasses, free of charge, to children and adults in need.
