On Sept. 27, 2014, the Osage City Lions Club will celebrate the 75th anniversary of their charter night with a banquet. The celebration takes place on the exact date that the club’s charter was given on Sept. 27, 1939.
The club began with 23 charter members and over the years increased their membership to over 100 at one time. Current membership stands at 46 members.
The club sponsoring the Osage City Lions Club was the Topeka Sunflower Lions Club. Later the Osage City club acted as a sponsor for three other area clubs, the Burlingame Lions Club, the Lyndon Lions Club, and the Harveyville Lions Club.
