Ossining Lions Club

of Ossining and Briarcliff, NY

Lions International Mission Statement

To create and foster a spirit of understanding among all people for humanitarian needs by providing voluntary services through community involvement and international cooperation.

1927 was a very good year.
At the height of the roaring twenties,
Ossining gained its own Lions Club. 

Lions Clubs had started in Chicago just 10 years earlier,
and was spreading nationwide
with something miraculous happening.


Join with us as we celebrate 90 years of Lionism in Ossining in Historic Grace Hall!

Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan

The Ossining Lions Club will celebrate its 90th anniversary at Grace Hall, 7 Old Albany Post Road, the home of the Crotonville Lions Club. The event will take place on Thursday, April 26, starting at 7 pm.

The Celebration will feature a short drama written by Stephen Hersh, illuminating how Helen Keller gave the original Lions Club its direction on how to become ‘Knights of the Blind’. Two professional actresses will portray Helen Keller and Annie Sullivan, her longtime companion. Members of the Ossining Club will portray the other characters in the play.

This is a unique experience but also an opportunity to see historic Grace Hall, originally built in 1897 as an Episcopal Chapel memorial to Orlando B. Potter, a branch of the Brandreth family. Rebuilt  after a devastating fire in 1913 it is now the home of the Crotonville Lions.


To reserve a spot contact rsvp@ossininglions.org before Tuesday, April 24. There will be a buffet supper at $35 and a cash bar. All are welcome.
