A BRIEF HISTORY
The Wrentham Lions Club is a local chapter of Lions Club International, a worldwide service organization that was founded in 1917 in Chicago, Illinois. The Wrentham Lions Club was chartered on February 22, 1960, and has been serving the community of Wrentham, Massachusetts, and its surrounding areas ever since.
The club was started by a group of local residents who wanted to make a positive impact on their community. They were inspired by the motto of Lions Club International, "We Serve," and sought to help those in need through various service projects.
The Wrentham Lions Club is part of District 33K of Lions Club International, which covers much of southeastern Massachusetts. The club continues to thrive today, with a dedicated membership of volunteers who are committed to serving their community and making a difference in the world.
Helen Keller - The Wrentham Connection
In 1905, Hellen Keller bought a home in Wrentham, Massachusetts, which she called Arcan Ridge. She lived there with her companion and secretary, Polly Thomson, for over 40 years until her death in 1968. While living in Wrentham, Keller continued to write and speak about her experiences and her beliefs, and she remained an important figure in the disability rights movement.
