Late Note: Like most of us, we are no longer meeting in person. We are Zooming and if you would like to join us, please let us know.
The Oxnard Noontimers Lions Club is celebrating its 67th year. We used to meet at Noon every Friday at the Oxnard Courtyard by Marriott, 600 E. Esplanade Dr., Oxnard, CA 93036 -- by the twin towers.
Visit us on Facebook where we have more pictures of our events and you can request to Zoom with us.
Every year (except 2020) the Oxnard Noontimers help out at the Oxnard Health Fair at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, 500 Juanita (corner of Colonia). The last time we were able to meet, we performed nearly 500 vision screenings and fitted approximately 400 pairs of glasses to those in need.
We hope to be back in October 2021 for another round of eye exams.
Before the pandemic we performed the following annual fundraising events:
We hope to return in 2021
We were posting our bulletin, The Lions Din, every Friday for the meeting and keep issues online for reference. We have bulletins going back to 2003 right here, but there are none since the pandemic.

All public monies go into our foundation, rather than our club, so donations to the Oxnard Noontmers Lions Foundation are fully tax-deductable as allowed by law. Our IRS Letter is available here and the State of California Tax Exempt letter is here.
The Oxnard Noontimers Lions Foundation supports a number of local and regional charities. Here is a partial list:
