     The NP Lions Club is writing with news that will likely not surprise you. In light of the current Covid-19 pandemic, we have decided to cancel our 2020 Golf Fundraising event.

     Our initial thought was to postpone our 23rd Annual Pizzi Memorial Golf Tournament until later this summer or early fall but with the many unknowns about how the future will unfold and special awareness with regard to safety for social gatherings, what the broader economic picture will be especially for sponsors and participants, and the Lion's current resources to organize and implement a successful event by early fall, we believed the best option was to cancel for 2020.

     First and foremost, the New Providence Lions would like to say ‘Thank You’ to every sponsor, donor, golfer and guest who have made our Pizzi Memorial Outing so successful and how each you have helped us honor Judge Pizzi for the last 22 years!  Our tournament highlighted all the true values of Frank, the Lions Club and our home town of New Providence and provided us the financial opportunity for the Lions Club to support so many local organizations thru your donations and contributions to this Memorial Fundraiser.

     Looking forward, as this ‘New Normal’ evolves to a safer and more stable environment, we will be planning other events for the fall, namely our 2nd Annual Cornhole Contest to be held outdoors this September. Hopefully, an improving financial situation will allow all of us to think once again beyond the immediate needs of our friends, neighbors and local businesses to the ever present needs of our local organizations. Also, please mark your calendars for next year’s  Frank A. Pizzi, Jr Memorial Golf Tournament to be held early June 2021.

     Be Well and Stay Safe!

      Lions Club International's vision is to be a global leader in community and humanitarian service. Established in 1917, Lions Club International has over 1.4 million members, with 47,000 local clubs in more than 200 countries worldwide. Lions Clubs encourage service-minded people to serve their community without personal financial reward. Lions' global causes include Vision, Diabetes Awareness, Childhood Cancer, Hunger and the Environment.

     The New Providence Lions Club, chartered in 1969, is proud to have served the community of New Providence for half a century and reflects the ethics and ideals of Lions International. We are a vibrant and diverse group of 60+ members, both men and women, from different backgrounds and professions dedicated to giving back. 100% of the funds we raise go back into the New Providence community.

     We serve the New Providence community in two ways. First, we raise funds and make donations to those in need and to those that serve the well-being of our community.  Second, by partnering with other New Providence origanizations to provide manpower for charity and community events. 

     We support the community through events such as our Annual Easter Egg Hunt, NPBPA Summer Concert Series, NPPBA Pumpkin Carving Contest, Veterans Day Luncheon. We also help support local charities and town services namely, the Community Service Association, American Legion, Police and Fire Departments, Library, Senior Center and more. We contribute to our schools through High School Scholarships, Safety events and the Middle School International Peace Poster Contest. Also, in certain instances, we have helped local families that have had children with severe medical conditions or other adversities. Our motto is "We Serve". The New Providence Lions Club strives to help make New Providence a thriving community to live, work and do business. Most importantly, we do all these good things for our community and still manage to share quality experiences and have a lot of fun.

     General meetings are held at the Chimney Rock Inn located on Valley Rd. in Gillette, NJ  07933. We meet the 1st & 3rd Wednesday of each month at 6:30 PM. New Providence Lions Club, P.O Box 854, New Providence, NJ 07974.
