On a warm summer evening, the Grand Terrace Lions Club celebrated a momentous milestone: their 50th anniversary installation dinner for the 2024-2025 term. The event, held at the elegant Grand Terrace Community Center, was a night filled with nostalgia, camaraderie, and a renewed commitment to service.

Attendees included current and past members, local dignitaries, and representatives from other Lions Clubs in the region. The atmosphere was festive, with tables adorned in the club’s colors of blue and gold, and a display showcasing memorabilia from the past five decades.

As the Grand Terrace Lions Club embarks on its next 50 years, the spirit of service that has defined its history remains as strong as ever. With a dedicated team of officers and enthusiastic members, the club is poised to continue its legacy of service and make an even greater impact in the years to come.
