The Lions District 33S Organization does not function without involvement of the membership. Please do not assume someone else is doing it, consider getting involved. It is the responsibility of the membership to be involved. I am asking you to serve your District, District Governor Ray Moreau
Hearing Foundation Board of Directors
Do you want to be involved but no one ASKED you? - Are you interested? - Your help is needed!!!
The Hearing Foundation was formed to serve the people in need with affordable Hearing Aids through Lions Clubs of District 33 S.
The Hearing Foundation has a Job to do, but to do this job it needs Lions to serve on the Board of Directors. Many times it is thought that someone else will or is doing the job. The By-Laws of the hearing Foundation state that after six years (two three year appointments) a member must leave the Board to allow others to serve and have new fresh thinking individuals. As of this year we have two director positions open to fill and next year we will have additional two seats. With this said after next year we will not have anyone on the board to keep the Foundation going clubs will not have this Foundation avertable to them to serve those in need in their communities.
Meetings are held the on second Tuesday of each month from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM (that is just one hour a month plus your travel time to the Morton Hospital Speech, Hearing & Language Center, 2007 Bay Street Suite B-100, Taunton, MA 02780.

Eyeglass Recycling Program
Think about if this committee did not exist, what your Club would do with the glasses collected
The Committee works on organizing the eyeglass collections and processing and needs hands on Volunteers. Lions District 33S has been recycling eyeglasses for the last Seven years. The first three years, the efforts were directed at fulfilling a commitment to the people of Sri Lanka with over 33,000 pairs of eyeglasses being sent. At the same time, over 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses were provided to support a Rotary International mission to Chilayo, Peru. One Lion’s year the District had a commitment to provide 12,000 pairs of eyeglasses to the Greater Monrovia Lions Club in Liberia along with 15 cases of Braille books to a school for the blind.
