If you want to know more about the Norwich Lions Club, plan on attending one of our meetings as a guest and check out what we are all about. We meet at the Norwich Public Library community room at 6:30 pm on the first and third Tuesday of every month from September to June. Our Norwich fair is usually held in July, and plans are getting underway for this years fair. We could sure use some help with all of our programs that provide service to Norwich and the Upper Valley.
