Springfield Lions Club Disbanded 19 Jun 14

The Springfield Lions Club has disbanded after over 37 years of service to the community. Declining membership and lack of participation have been cited as the main reasons for the club disbanding, with it becoming more difficult getting younger people to join after older members pass away or resign. Over the course of its existance, the Springfield Lions Club helped purchase playground equipment for Riverside Park, sponsored the Student of the Month program, conducted Operation Christmas Joy, held the annual fly-in breakfast fundraiser, and helped support numerous Springfield area, and worldwide, groups and organizations.
