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 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.
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). In 2021 we returned to examin 149 people, hand out 122 eye glasses and refer 6 people for vision medical issues (which Lions cover). The number of clients was down from previous years, but OK in the midst of the pandemic.

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 the Zoom meetings during the pandemic are weren't created. They have resumed along with our meetings since October.
The Oxnard Noontimers are a fraternal organization, however we have a companion organization that is a US registered 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation. 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.
All administrative costs are borne by the club, so 100% of charity contributions go to charitable activities.
The Oxnard Noontimers Lions Foundation supports a number of local and regional charities. Here is a partial list:
