Cumberland/North Yarmouth Lions Club

The Cumberland/North Yarmouth Lions Club has been an active part of our community since its founding in 1961. An active membership of over 50 members work throughout the year to support a number of community activities including the Community Food Pantry, support for our area seniors, Annual Christmas Tree Lighting and the students at Greely High School with annual Senior scholarships and the ongoing Student of the Month. And of course we also support the Lions Club International cause, to aid the blind and visually impaired by donating eye glasses when and where needed.

All the money to accomplish these things comes from our local Lions fundraisers including: the Lions food booth at the Cumberland Fair, the annual citrus sale, apple pie sales ( proceeds to Food Pantry ), and a food booth at Twin Brook events. We count on the people of Cumberland and North Yarmouth to support these fundraisers.

The Lions Club meets bi-weekly from September through May and we are always looking for new members. Our members do whatever is needed to help our local community. Everywhere we work, we make friends. For more information please check out our web page at:

Current Fundraising Event:

The Cumberland/North Yarmouth Lions Club has been exploring replacement ideas for the Cabin Fever Dinner which has run for a number of years. The Club decided that it is hard to pass up good old fashioned hard cash, so the Spring Ca$h Raffle was born! First Prize will be $1,000! Second Prize- $500 and Third Prize- $250.
The Lions Spring Ca$h Raffle tickets will be on sale now through May 8, 2017, when the winning ticket will be drawn at the annual Lions Club Charter Night Dinner. The details are very simple- tickets cost $10 each and can be purchased online at: CNY Lions Raffle

Tickets can also be purchased from any Lions Club member or by contacting: 
Darla Hamlin at 207-831-0160, or Marilyn Matthews at 207-329-6838,
Proceeds from the raffle will go towards all the many community programs the Club supports including- Greely Senior Scholarships; the Community Food Pantry; support of our area seniors; and other community projects. All the money raised stays 100% local!
The Cumberland/North Yarmouth Lions Club also wants to invite any community member living in the Cumberland and North Yarmouth area to please consider joining the Club. Guests are also welcome at the bi-weekly meetings anytime. For more information go to:
