The Bridgeville Lions Club of Lions Club International
P.O. Box 414
Bridgeville, Delaware 19933
The Bridgeville Lions Club was organized in 1952 by a group of your friends, neighbors, and relatives who were dedicated to making this community “A Better Place to Live”. Since that time, the Lions have provided over $925,000 worth of services and material needs in our community.
As a member of Lions Clubs International, we are also committed to serving people and projects in our district, state, and around the world. Lions Clubs International is the largest service organization in the world, with over 1,347,214 members in 46,020 clubs and 745 districts in 193 countries.
Membership in our Club is by invitation only from a member with the approval of the board of directors. All costs to operate the Bridgeville Lions Club come from the members. There is a one-time initiation fee plus bi-annual dues. None of the money raised via fundraising is spent on administration expenses.
Dinner meetings are the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month (except July and August) at 7:00 p.m. Not only are bonds of friendship formed that lead to the success of our club, but also interesting, educational programs keep members informed about the community and personal interests, and they also have fun.
Kiwanis Club of Bridgeville
The Kiwanis Club of Bridgeville was chartered in 1939 and has contributed thousands of man-hours and funds in an effort to provide for the needs of our children and less fortunate individuals. It also sponsors and supports various community service projects. Hence the Kiwanis International Motto, “SERVING THE CHILDREN OF THE WORLD”, and our mission statement, “KIWANIS IS A GLOBAL ORGANIZATION OF VOLUNTEERS DEDICATED TO CHANGING THE WORLD ONE CHILD AND ONE COMMUNITY AT A TIME”.
The club’s activities are governed largely by this mission statement, to help make our community a better place to live, work and play for all of its citizens. We meet the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month in the Fellowship Hall of Union United Methodist Church in Bridgeville at 6:30 p.m. for dinner and a program.

The Bridgeville Historical Society
The Bridgeville Historical Society was founded in 1976 by a group of individuals interested in preserving the history of the Bridgeville community.
The Society purchased and restored the first firehouse (1911) and made it into a small museum. Adjoining property was purchased for a small community park complete with a bandstand for summer concerts and activities.
Old Firehouse Museum open the first Sunday of each month (April through October) from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Our book, Bridgeville – A Community History of the Nineteenth Century was published in 1985.
With assistance from the Delaware State Historic Preservation Office, an historic district has been established in Bridgeville.
Our major fund-raisers are the “Christmas in Bridgeville” craft show (First Sat. in December) and a summer auction for members and guests. Individual and corporate donations are always appreciated.
New members are always welcome. Check out their website.
