TERRE HAUTE — A new Lions Club comes to Terre Haute on March 15.

Nearly 40 men and women will celebrate the formation of the Terre Haute Lions Club at 6 p.m. in the Kerman Grotto on U.S. 40 just across the Wabash River bridge in West Terre Haute.

The new Terre Haute Evening Lions Club becomes the third Lions Club in Terre Haute, joining the Terre Haute Lions Club and the Downtown Terre Haute Lions Club.

During the ceremony, Indiana Lions District Gov. Gary Lawson will present the members of the new club with their official charter. Members of the Riley Township Lions Club, who sponsored the formation of the Terre Haute Evening Lions Club, and other local Lions also will be on hand to congratulate the new club.

The Terre Haute Evening Lions Club plans to become involved with assisting the local schools in meeting the needs of children. Internationally, the Lions’ primary activity is service to the blind and visually impaired. They also are very involved with youth initiatives.

Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest service club organization with more than 1.35 million members in 201 countries and geographical locations.
