Welcome to the Hanover Lions Club

We serve. It’s that simple, and it has been since we first began in 1937. Our club is a place where individuals give their valuable time and effort to improve their community. 

We celebrate our 87th anniversary this year and currently have more than 20 active members. 
Our motto is ‘We Serve.’

Every April the Hanover Lions Club runs the April Action Auction online. For services like carpentry and cake-baking, pruning and window washing, bidders secure an item, and all proceeds from the bidding go to local and global charities. Past recipients have been Ukrainian refugees, Turkish victims of an earthquake, and Mississippi residents rebuilding after a tornado. The recipients for 2024 are Youth in Action (a service organization for high-school students) and Visions Hanover (a service organization building an apartment complex to support adults with developmental disabilities). This year’s auction runs until Sunday, April 14, 2024 at 10:00 pm. The link for bidding is here: https://www.32auctions.com/HLAprilAuction2024

Eye Glasses spelling out lions

The Hanover Lions Club recycles eyeglasses that are no longer useful for the owner when, for example, the owner gets a new prescription. The Lions then sends the glasses to people around the world who can use them. Find out how you can participate.

Drop off locations include the Hanover Food Coop, the Lebanon Coop, the Howe Library, and Kendal at Hanover. We collect hearing aids, too!

The Annual Prouty is an athletic event that raises funds to benefit Dartmouth and Dartmouth-Hitchcock’s Norris Cotton Cancer Center (NCCC), one of 51 National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers in the country, and the only one in northern New England.

The Prouty™ began in 1982 when four NCCC nurses, inspired by the courage of their patient, Audrey Prouty, committed to cycling 100 miles through the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

The Hanover Lions Club runs the grill tent which serves food to participants as they finish their rides/walks/outings.

Find out more how you can participate on the Prouty website.
