Mattapoisett Lions Club

Mattapoisett Lions Club Mattapoisett Lions Club The Mattapoisett Lions Club, sponsored by the Fairhaven Lions Club, was chartered in 1953 with 30 charter members. Today we are a club with 75 members – one of the largest clubs in the area.

Our major fundraising effort is the week-long Harbor Days event at Shipyard Park in July. This event has been operating for more than 20 years, but it would not be the success it is without the support and help from the Mattapoisett community. Other fundraising events and community projects include: collecting used eyeglasses to be tagged, catalogued and shipped overseas to bring the gift of sight

⚓️At our club meeting this past Wednesday, we were fortunate to have Eric R. Dawicki President of Northeast Maritime Institute (NMI) College of Maritime Science located in Fairhaven as our guest speaker. The story of how NMI came into being was fascinating. The goal of the institute is to create a school of higher learning through a "micro college model". NMI has professionally trained over 68,000 mariners.

Club President Valerie J Kane presented Mr. Dawicki with a small lion statuette as a token of the club's appreciation.

I'd like to thank everyone who came out last night to the Mattapoisett Diner. I'm also looking forward to seeing the rest of you in the coming year. It was a real treat to finally be able to get together in person. Seeing our local club members and Deb Grassi mixing and ribbing one another was a breath of fresh air form this crazy last few months. I'd especially like to give a big shoutt out to Kimberly Ray who came out early with BEAUTIFUL flower arrangements and table settings. I'm enjoying the arrangement we took home right now.
King Lion and Board of Directors: Thank you for the Camaraderie, Friendship and Cooperation I received over the past 43 years, it has meant a great deal to me. I'm sure Mattapoisett will continue to hold the Club in high esteem as it continues SERVING the towns needs. Kindly accept this postl as my resignation. Old Lions never die,they just fade away. Most Sincerely, Paul Levine Melvin Jones Fellow
The New England Patriots have very generously donated this football autographed by Placekicker Stephen Gostkowski (#3)!!!

Thank you #NewEnglandPatriots!
