Lions Club Padubidri: With a slogan of 'We Serve', this service oriented organisation started here in Padubidri under Lion P.Ravindranath G.Hegde, as the President. It soon became popular with its service projects like Bus shelters, Free Medical camps, Aid to physically handicapped and mentally challenged people, and other service activities. Its star project was to build an English Medium School by forming Padubidri Lions Club Educational Trust under the leadership of P.Ravindranth G. Hegde, as the President and Lion Jaiprakash as the secretary with the dynamic support of Lion K.T.Rai, Lion Krishna Shetty, Lion Dr. N.T.Anchan, Ln Haji P.K.Moidin and other members. It had many ups and downs, and during the time of crisis it was managed very well with the help of Lion K.T.Rai, Lion James Dain Andrade, Lion Krishna Shetty, Lion Ravi Shetty and Lion Dr. N.T.Anchan with the support of its founder President. The major breakthrough came when the existing trust President Lion Y.Gopal Shetty and Past President of Lions Club Lion Ramesh Achar set up an example by donating a land of 1 Acre for building a new school building. They left no stones unturned and accomplished this task by building a spacious school building. The services offered by this school was quickly acknowledged by LCIF (Lions Club International Fund) and they donated Rs. 19,00,000 for the expansion of the school.
