Because of our seaside location we have been fortunate to have many retired people and younger, with many talents and from all walks of life, take up residence in our town. The Lions Club is always interested in increasing their membership and you may be a great asset to our Club, as well the Lions Club can provide a social atmosphere for you to get to know people in the area.
