The High Rolls/Mountain Park Lions 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. Proceeds from the festivals are used to further the High Rolls/Mountain Park Lions Club philanthropic activities. The club uses the money for 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 a lending library. Planning is underway for a new facility with expanded grounds and new capabilities. The club actively supports Lions International programs including Leader Dog and Lions Services for Children, education, community members with vision problems and diabetes programs. The club also provides the annual E. Ross Shain Scholarship for a community member who is enrolled in an accredited college or trade school.
