#GiveBackFridays: Narragansett Lions Club

Narragansett, named for the Native American tribe indigenous to the region, is a vibrant seaside community hugging more than 15 miles of breathtaking coastline. The town’s world-class beaches have been revered as desirable summer destinations since the nineteenth century.

Today, a wide variety of boutiques, restaurants, and outdoor activities compliment the town’s rich history. Four of the state’s most admired white sand beaches are located along Narragansett’s picturesque coast, including the top-ranked Narragansett Town Beach. Located in the center of the town, this beach is walking distance from the shops, historical sites, and restaurants of Narragansett Pier. Narragansett is also known as a surfing destination, featuring some of New England’s most sought-after breaks.

Residents of Narragansett enjoy the perks of being centrally located in the state, with easy access to Block Island, Newport, Watch Hill, and the capital, Providence. The town offers well-ranked public schools and nearby award-winning South County Hospital. In addition to the thriving tourism industry, the area’s traditional industries of fishing and agriculture are still flourishing today. This New England seaside resort has attracted distinguished summer visitors for generations, and offers a rich history and year round community to its residents today.

The Narragansett Lions Club was established in 1969 and currently conducts eight to ten fundraisers and functions during the year with the proceeds going to specific causes. According to the website, the Narragansett Lions Club’s mission is “to create and foster a spirit of understanding among all people for humanitarian needs by providing voluntary services through community involvement and international cooperation.”
