The Ridgefield Lions Club is a non-profit organization that supports the local community. Our Mission Statement is to create and foster a spirit of understanding among all people for humanitarian needs by providing voluntary services through community involvement and international cooperation. The Lions motto is "We Serve"

Our club was formed April 19, 1929.  We celebrated our 84th Anniversary this year. 

We collect used glasses throughout the year. There's a big YELLOW mailbox in front of Stop N Shop as well as smaller white and blue Lions Club boxes in Town Hall, Post Office, Liberta's Spirit Shoppe, Opticare, Dr. Amatuzzi's office, Dr. Berman's office (Family Eye Care), Dr. Doty's office, Ridgefield Bank (Danbury Road) and Dr. Reynold's office. There are also boxes at Founder's Hall and Ridgefield Parks and Rec .Georgetown Lions have a yellow mail box in Ancona's parking lot also. The glasses are sent to a school for the deaf in New Jersey where they are cleaned, read and packaged to be distributed to people in third world countries by Lions and opticians. Our club collected 10,000 pairs of glasses during the past few years.This is an ongoing project for our club.

If anyone is interested in joining our Club, please contact our membership chairperson, Lion Doug Millan at 203-438-5104 or email her at   We are always looking for people to join us in our endeavor to help those less fortunate.  Our club consists of both male and female members from all walks of life.  We love for you to join us at one of our meetings to see what we're all about.



If you or someone you know is in need of glasses and can't financially afford them, please call our president, Art Meyer, at 203-240-6304 to find out the process we have to be able to give you glasses free of charge.  This is one of our ongoing service projects.

Our club turns 85 this year.  To celebrate we are having an Anniversary Dinner on April 8th at Bernard's.  The cost is $50.00 per person.  There is a cash bar starting at 6:30 with dinner at 7:30.  All are invited.  RSVP to 203-438-0726 or (underscore between j & l) if you'd like to join us.  We will also be having our Annual Awards Night.  We will be presenting the Melvin Jones Fellowship, Lions highest award, to Lion Colleen Velez.  Do come help us celebrate our milestone birthday and congratulate Lion Colleen on her accomplishments throughout her 20 years as a Lion.

Our new year started as of July 1st.  Art Meyer is continuing another year as President.  We have a lot of projects lined up for this new year, both service and fundraising.



Our first service project will be to pick up left over fresh fruits and vegetables from the Farmers Market each Wednesday from August through October and deliver to Meals On Wheels to be used with their meals.




We will be having our 5th annual Pasta Dinner on September 26th at Parks and Rec  This is one of our many fundraisers for the year. You may eat in or take out.  This year we have set up an email address that you can email the number of dinners and pick up time so they will be ready for curb side pick up, eliminating you to even leave your car.  We accept cash or checks only.  Let us cook dinner for you on September 26th.  By purchasing tickets you help us help those less fortunate in our town.  All money earned goes back to the community.  Tickets are available at Prudential Realty, Chez Delilia's Hair Salon, Squash's and from any Ridgefield Lion. 



On October 19th we are having our fall  DOCUMENT SHREDDING DAY... bring all your old papers, bank statements, receipts, tax forms, etc to the parking lot behind Starbucks (94 Danbury Road) to be shredded by SECURE ECOSHRED.  Each box (copy paper size) is $10.00 (can put papers in bags).  The truck will be there from 9am-12pm.  Paper clips and/or staples do not have to be removed.  Any questions please call:  203-438-4724 or 203-438-0726.



We hosted  our annual Senior Dinner at Ballard Green on October 15th.  those in attendance had a great meal and enjoyed listening and dancing to the Gaslight Banjo Band.



We are planning to do Postcards For the Troops once again on Friday evening at the annual Holiday Stroll--December 6th.  Our location is THE MAIN LOBBY OF TOWN HALL from 6 until cards run out.  The troops are so very appreciative of these postcards from home.


The second Saturday of December will find us ringing the Salvation Army Bells at Stop and Shop and Dunkin Donuts.



This will give you a few ideas of what we do.  If you are interested in learning more about our club, the largest service organization in the world, please call our membership chair---Doug Millan at 203-438-5104 or email him at
