Lions International Mission Statement
The Lions Club of High Rolls/Mountain Park New Mexico is an organization that consist of several local volunteers. These volunteers help the community by raising money to provide assistance to those in need.
As the primary fundraiser, the club hosts two festivals each year: the Cherry Festival, held on the third weekend in June, and the Apple festival, held on the third weekend in October. Over 95% of festival profits go to local, state, national and international charitable causes. These causes include the National Leader Dog program, a program in which a dog is purchased and trained to help guide the blind, and the collection and provision of eyeglasses for the needy. The club uses the remainder of fundraising money to the support of the High Rolls/Mountain Park Community Center. The Center is a no-cost location for senior citizens to have lunch, a place for community gatherings, and includes a lending library.
Aside from the festivals and charity projects, the Lions of High Rolls/Mountain partake in a Signature Project. Projects of this magnitude consist of significant financial resources and/or manpower. The current signature project for the Lions is the construction of a new High Rolls/Mountain Park Community Center. To date we have donated land and garnered the necessary backing at the local and state level to make it happen.
Please help us with our causes and join us at our festivals! If you're really interested in what we do, join us at one of our monthly meetings to find out how you can get involved.
