Cottonwood Lions Park
One of the first projects accomplished in Cottonwood by the Cottonwood Lions Club was "Lions Park" located at the intersection of Main and Willard in Old Town Cottonwood. The sign welcoming visitors to Cottonwood also indicates our regular breakfast meetings at Denny’s Restaurant at 6:30 a.m. on the first three Tuesdays of each month.

Year-Round Collection of Eye Glasses and Hearing Aides
Previously-owned eyeglasses and hearing aids are collected at several locations around town—Westcott Funeral Home, Chamber of Commerce Visitors Center, Fornara Eye Center, Old Town Mission, and Wal-Mart Vision Center.
Three or four times a year several ladies from the Lions gather at Lion Maureen Haggard’s house to sort the donations for shipping to the Lions Sight and Hearing Foundation in Phoenix. From there they are distributed all over the world; but the best ones stay here in Arizona for those less fortunate among us who cannot afford glasses or hearing aids.
Year-Round Recycling of Aluminum Cans to Raise Funds
In order to have money to contribute the many worthwhile activities of the Lions Club, we recycle aluminum cans year round. The Cottonwood Lions Club keeps the area picked up and reasonably clean in exchange for being allowed to place our own collection bin next to the other bins at the site.
