The Paxtang Civic Club is a service club that supports local fire companies, senior group centers, etc. We have trips by bus or carpool to local events, play bingo, have silent auctions, and engaging speakers on a variety of subjects and vocal groups.
We meet on the first Monday of every month at 1 PM except for January and February. We are planning a day trip in August for lunch and a show at Capitol Theatre.

Paxtang Lions Club

This Club is a non-church related, community organization that regularly meets and functions out of Paxton Church. There are approximately 65 members, both men and women, of which about 20% are members of Paxton Church. For the 2006-2007 program year, William Knerr is “King Lion” (President). Regular meetings are held on the 2nd & 4th Thursdays of each month, beginning at 6:30 PM. Periodically the group uses church facilities for fund-raising events (making subs for sale, etc.). The Paxtang Lions Club is the local chapter of Lions Clubs International, the world’s largest volunteer service organization. As such, the group supports numerous activities, including: various activities aiding blind and sight-impaired persons; fund-raising for world-wide disaster support; sponsorship of various local activities (annual Paxtang Halloween Parade; annual Paxtang Christmas Tree Lighting; annual gathering of food for persons in need; annual Easter Egg Hunt for area children; annual sponsorship of Handicapped Olympics; and other events).
