Lions are men and women who volunteer their time to humanitarian causes in their local and world communities. By conducting service projects and raising funds, Lions strive to help those in need, wherever need exists.The Lions motto is ''We Serve''.
The Coloma Lions have been very active in the past year. In December, the Lions distributed bags of candy and fruit for the Christmas Party for the children of Coloma. They packed and distributed Christmas Food Baskets to the needy and Christmas Fruit Baskets to the elderly.
In February they held a Fisheree on Pleasant Lake that was very well attended. The weather was perfect, the fish were biting, and the annual Radar Run attracts a good crowd every year. The new favorite that was added a few years ago is an Ice Volleyball Competition.
The club sponsored an Easter Egg Hunt in April at the Coloma Community Park that was attended by hundreds of eager children. The children searched for packet of candy wrapped in aluminum foil. Special packets included a plastic egg with a special number in it that could be traded for a stuffed animal or a huge chocolate bunny. The weather was much better this year, and the children had no trouble filling their buckets.
During the spring, summer, and fall the Coloma Lions held periodic road cleanups along their assigned section of Hwy. 21. An average of 10 members show up for each cleanup and fill many garbage bags with the refuse thrown out of passing cars. New officers were installed in July at the annual steak fry.
