Club History The Essex Lions Club was chartered on February 17, 1955, as part of the largest service organization in the world, Lions Clubs International. We are part of Massachusetts District 33N. Our motto of "We Serve" and logo of L.I.O.N.S. (Liberty, Intelligence, Our Nation's Safety) have guided us through almost fifty years of service to our community, state, national, and international brothers and sisters.
Senior Recognition Night Essex is a small town north of Boston with a population of 3,700 people and until 1997 had no high school of its own. As a result, the town students would, through various means such as school choice, tuition programs with adjoining towns or private schools, be split up throughout the NorthShore area to attend high school. Thirty years ago the Essex Lions Club started an annual Senior Recognition Dinner to reunite all graduating high school seniors along with their parents and former elementary school teachers for a trip down memory lane, At the dinner, presentations of local scholarships were made, and last year the scholarships were in excess of $20,000.00.
