  The Lion's Scholarship Fund is a special Project of the Fort Myers Beach Lion's Foundation which was set up in 1993 and has been awarding local scholarships every year since.  The Fund receives separate tax deductible donations from the public and is augmented by proceeds from the Fort Myers Beach Lions Shrimp Festival the second weekend in March every year.  "Lions are proud of their record of never using any of the funds donated to the Foundation for administration or fund raising." Patsy Dorsey Foundation Past President noted. "

Lions make an unbearably good gift for the Holidays. The Ft. Myers Beach Lions Club is donating dozens and dozens of teddy bears for a charity auction sponsored by Goodwill Industries.

Our goal is to make a more cohesive club, put some fun in our activities, and attract new members    
 
Lions are strongly encouraged to invite non Lions to attend as their guests!  These are easy and great opportunities for Beach Lions to invite anyone they think may be interested in being a lion or helping Lions achieve more. Relatives and friends always welcome!
