For more than 90 years, the Kemmerer Lions Club has been donating time, raising funds, and working with members of the community to help youth and elderly who cannot afford basic vision and hearing care, and to help better the communities of Kemmerer and surrounding areas. The Kemmerer Lions Club also helps to support regional organizations and events for the visual/hearing impaired. The Kemmerer Lions Club supports these efforts through its Annual Ice Fishing Derby and Summer Golf Tournament.
Going strong for more than 30 years, the Annual Kemmerer Lions Club Ice Fishing Derby fundraiser draws participants from all over the Rocky Mountain region and beyond. Supported by local and regional sponsors, the event awards over $4,100 in guaranteed daily and hourly prizes, and offers participants the chance to win tagged-fish prizes totaling more than $30,000.
In cooperation with the Fossil Island Golf Club, the Kemmerer Lions Club hosts its Annual Lions Club Golf Tournament fundraiser. Sponsored by local and regional sponsors, the event brings participants from Kemmerer, Diamondville, and surrounding communities to raise funds and support Kemmerer Lions Club causes and projects.
