The Red Oak Lions Club meets at 7:00pm on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of every month at the Lions Community Center, 207 W Red Oak Rd in Red Oak, TX.
The Red Oak Lions Club is the oldest service orgaization in Red Oak being chartered in 1949.
In the early 1950's the club built the town's first baseball field and it also put up the first street signs the town had, one of which is still standing at College and Summit Streets.
This club annually supports Lions Club International, the Lions Sight and Tissue Foundation, Leader Dogs for the Blind and Texas Lions Camp for Children with Disabilities.
Locally they make annual donations to the Red Oak ISD Education Foundation, North Ellis County Outreach, ROISD Project Success and bowling for badges which benefits the Red Oak Police and Fire Fighter Associations. They sponsor a student of the Month and provide scholarships to deserving Red Oak High School Seniors. In 2011 they sponsored vision clinics with complimentary eye exams and supplying over 70 pairs of glasses to Red Oak students who could not otherwise afford them.
The Red Oak Lions Club collects used eye glasses year round. Eyeglasses can be dropped off at the Red Oak Lions Club or Brookshires grocery store and Red Oak Eye Care. These eye glasses are taken to recycling centers for processing and distribution to those who would not otherwise be able to afford them.
As a community service, the club provides a meeting place for the Senior Citizens Group and the Red Oak Police Officers Association free of charge. The club partners with the City of Red Oak to co-host the Annual City Wide Easter Egg Hunt and host the costume contest at the Annual Red Oak Fall Festival.
The club raises funds by hosting monthly Pancake Breakfasts, co-hosting the Festival of Trees and participating with a booth at Founders day.
