At the Colorado Lions convention in Aspen the Golden Lions Club received the KidSight Club of the Year for 2014-2015 award for outstanding service to the KidSight program. The club received special acknowledgement for the extra effort it put forward to scan over 500 kids in the St. Vrain Valley school district. St Vrain Valley school district made a last minute decision to become part of the program but local clubs were not able to provide the screening needed. The Golden Lions stepped in and volunteered to travel the 50 miles to the district on three different occasions and screened over 500 children. This effort was in addition to the over two thousand kids that were screened in the local community.
Lion Ed Dorsey received the award on behalf of Golden Lions Kidsight Chairman Robert Storrs and the rest of the Kidsight Committee.
Assistance with the construction was provided by Steve Kurtz and the Golden "Streets Department" to lift the roof into position.
The Golden Lions Club has been serving the community since 1943. The Club is well known for its Chili Supper in January and the 4th of July Community Festival. Vision programs are high on the list of service projects and include eyeglass recycling, financial assistance for eye surgeries and eyeglasses and eye screening of preschoolers and kindergarteners. The Lions have also constructed many amenities around the City, including the public restrooms in front of Meyer's Hardware and gazebos in several City parks.

This is MillerCoors' largest annual volunteer event to protect beer's most important ingredient: water. The brewer designated September as "Great Water Month," when thousands of MillerCoors employees will participate in projects across the nation to protect local water resources and promote water stewardship. The projects will take employees off-campus and into their local communities to repair riverbeds, clean up coastlines, and remove trash.
