BATH — The City of Ships may soon have its own Lions Club.

Resident Elliot Zimmerman is arranging a meeting at City Hall auditorium on Thursday, Dec. 16, for people who might be interested in joining a Bath Lions chapter. The meeting, with a representative from the Maine Lions Club, starts at 6:30 p.m.

Zimmerman – who owns EZ Diabetic Supplies, a diabetes testing supplies company in West Bath – noted Monday that the two key thrusts of the Lions Club are preventing blindness and helping people who have diabetes.

Given his company’s focus, Zimmerman said, “this is kind of a natural fit.”

Zimmerman, who was surprised to find no Lions chapter in Bath or Brunswick, said the chapter needs a place to meet and at least 20 members. He said he anticipates that City Hall would continue to be the meeting place.

Lions chapters are established to do community service projects, and each chapter decides what those projects will be, Zimmerman said.

The Maine Lions have served Maine communities since the 1920s.
