Lions Community Activities
What you think you know about Lions club
Prescott Sunrise Lions visualize the needs of the community far beyond the needs of those with vision or hearing disabilities. We also see the needs of the community within our young citizens by offering scholarship opportunities, recognizing outstanding character and instilling confidence.
Our sponsorship of camps for handicapped youth as well as funding facilities and programs that can promote, restore and maintain a person’s eyesight, has been continuous and ongoing for decades.
