White Cane Days 
2015 White Cane Week we collected over $4500
The last week of April and the next weekend are set aside for White Cane Days. Lion's Club Members are stationed at many local businesses. This major fundraiser for Lions Clubs around the world is also an opportunity to make people aware of those that are sight imparted and the problems they encounter. Funds raised are used to support the Leader Dog School for the Blind in Rochester and are also used to help those in need with eye exams and the purchase of eyeglasses. 

Arts, Beats and Eats  
Lions Club beer tent at Arts, Beats, and Eats
Every year we have a beer and soft drink tent at Arts Beats and Eats Festival held in downtown Royal Oak over Labor Day weekend.  

Bell Ringing for the Salvation Army   
Greet at Sams Club makes a donation
For over 50 years our club has manned the Salvation Army red kettles from Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve.  Every year since 2011 we have raised over $10,000 for the Salvation Army - far exceeding all other service organizations.

Christmas Party for Silent Children  
2014 Silent Children's Christmas Party
Every year we host a Christmas party for preschool children with speech problems.  These children are from families that cannot afford the cost of speech therapy, so our Lions district provides scholarships for these kids.  Santa passes out gifts to the excited children.  And for entertainment before the luncheon and party, we are serenaded by the Royal Oak H S choir.

Family Adoption for Christmas  
2014 Gifts for Family Adoptions
Every year we are given a family to adopt from the Salvation Army.
