Our club organizes and sponsors the annual 4th of July parade in Portage.   The parade is always on the 4th of July (no matter what day of the week it falls on) and kicks off at 11:00am from the north-end of the village then proceeds south down SR 25 to Enright Park.  Following the parade there are several activities scheduled that includes a car show, duck race, and bake sale.

Please note:  This event has been suspended until further notice.

In the past our club sponsored a Bike for Sight event on the Slippery Elm Trail.  The ride was scheduled for early May and raised funds that were designated to eye health. Lions Clubs, both locally and internationally sponsor a variety of sight programs.  A few of these programs are preschool vision screening, recycling eyeglasses on vision trips, paying for new eyeglasses or cataract surgeries, provide vision readers, help to eradicate river blindness, and much more.
