The Pasadena Lion’s Club was formed in November of 1965. There were sixteen charter (original) members, and currently (August 2015), there are only four still alive. These individuals are: Gordon Wagg, Gerald Wight, Nelson Bennett and Roy Myles, and Mr. Wagg is still an active member of the organization. When the club first began, there was the Lion’s Club for the men and the Lioness Club for the women. After awhile, the Lioness club disbanded and joined with the men in the Lion’s Club. The purpose of the club in the community was to raise money for those in need. Over the years, the club has been involved in many projects, including providing furniture and televisions for the hospital waiting room, as well as donating money to individuals who are sick.
Today, the Pasadena Lion’s Club is still flourishing in the community. Some of the current active members are: Derrick Anthony and his wife, Vina Peiroway, Maisie Wilson, Paddy McNeil, Jerry Brake, Gary and Elaine Bishop, Betty Harven, and Frank Bonnell. The Pasadena club will be celebrating its 50th year anniversary this November (2015), and continues to provide charitable service for individuals of need in the area.
