Lions Club Events
The Alpine Viejas Days Parade
Last Sunday in September
The Alpine Viejas Days Parade and Festival is a yearly event coordinated by the Alpine Stagecoach Lions Club. Lions Clubs provide help in the area of sight preservation and community support in many ways. The Alpine Stagecoach Lions are committed to supporting the development of urgent care facilities in mountain communities, providing community assistance to the sight impaired, and recognizing deserving graduating students of Joan MacQueen Middle School.
The 2014 Parade is currently being planned. If you would like to help us out, you can join us at our parade planning meetings. Information on meetings will be posted on our meetings page as it becomes available.
For more information please visit the Alpine Days Parade Website.
Our Community Services
Glasses for Children
In 1925, Helen Keller challenged Lions to become “knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness.” Lions have answered the challenge and gained worldwide recognition for our work to improve sight.
Hearing Aids for the Elderly
In partnership with the Lions Hearing Foundation the Alpine Lions Club collects used hearing aids for refurbishing and distribution. The donated hearing aids are sanitized and fitted to individuals for less than $200.00. The Alpine Lions has helped over 375 people in the East San Diego County receive the hearing aids they need.
Emergency Disaster Relief
The Lions Club provides emergency services to our communities. During the recent wild fires, our members helped feed and comfort the families that lost their homes. We also delivered meals and pillows to the fire fighters base camps and operated a horse rescue camp.
Cell Phone and Ink Cartridge Recycling
The Alpine Lions Club recycles cell phones, inkjet & laser ink cartridges.
