The Syracuse Lady Lions Club has been contributing to the Syracuse community for 57 years and has made a particular impact on keeping the children in Northern Utah warm and cozy at night. The latest service opportunity for the club is tying quilts and donating bedding for Sleep in Heavenly Peace, an organization that makes and delivers beds for children who don’t have one.
The only fundraiser for the Syracuse Lady Lions is an annual quilt raffle held during Syracuse Heritage Days. Tickets are available at the booth or from any member of the club.
The Lady Lions take an active interest in the civic, business,
social, and moral welfare of the community. One of the club’s goals is to unite the members in bonds of friendship, and I can’t think of a better way to do that than by serving alongside someone with a common goal in mind. The ladies go to Raintree Assisted living each month and make a craft with residents. They also assist and donate lap quilts to the residents at Beehive House assisted living.
The list of all the projects they have been involved in is extensive. From sponsoring the Miss Syracuse Pageant to making items for the Davis Hospital and Medical Center Gift Shop, they have a hand in a lot of good things.
Colleen Thurgood, Beth Barber, and Phyllis Cook are original charter members who are still active in the club. All of the volunteers who have joined and contributed since then continue to shape Syracuse in a wonderful way.
Join us! The Syracuse Lady Lions meet on the second Thursday of each month from March through December. Anyone interested in joining or attending a meeting may contact Colleen Thurgood at 801- 825-1752, Charlotte Wright at 801-525-6695, or Carole McLaughlin at (801)200-2135.
