Memorial donations to the Wheeling Lions Club Charities in memory of Nick Bedway

Nick was a very proud and long standing member of the Wheeling Lions Club. Please consider donating in Nick's memory the helps to ensure the Charities of the Lions Club that he so dearly loved will continue.  

"During the 90 years of its existence, the Wheeling Lions Club has been increasingly recognized as an essential service club in the community.  The Wheeling Lions was the first club to collect “old gold” eye glass frames and use the proceeds from the frames for its sight programs. We continue to recycle used eye glasses with over 4000 collected each year.  We have donated testing and other sight related equipment to Ohio County Schools and West Virginia Northern Community College and supply eye exams and glasses to approximately 300 people yearly in the community. We also provide hearing exams and devices to those in need.

      It was the first service organization in Wheeling to participate in the Salvation Army Christmas Kettle drive. We continue this service as well as Christmas Stockings for the Salvation Army, Easter Seals “Cookie Caper”, Feed the Hungry program at St. Luke’s, Laughlin Chapel after school program, Heritage Trail clean-up, and eye equipment for WVU Children’s Hospital.

     For many years the club sponsored a West Virginia/Ohio All-Star Basketball Game as a fund raising project. Our current fund raisers include:  Spaghetti Dinner, Steak-Fry, Golf Scramble, and Reverse Raffle

     For many years the Wheeling Lions honored law enforcement officers with a testimonial dinner.  Today, we honor the school nurses in Ohio County with a luncheon and gift of appreciation; the Peace Poster Contest winners with a luncheon, savings bond, and plaque; and the Eye Glass recycling sites with a luncheon and certificate. 

     We promote the youth in the community by sponsoring two LEO Clubs, at Wheeling Park High School and Wheeling Middle School.  We are also Partners in Education with Wheeling Middle School.

     The current officers and members of the Wheeling Lions Club continue to serve the City of Wheeling and surrounding Ohio County Community.  We continue to define the motto “WE SERVE” through our time, talents, and gifts.

Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with more than 1.4 million members in approximately 46,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world." https://e-clubhouse.org/sites/wheeling/index.php
