Rich Shaff was elected to serve as the club secretary. The club's vice-president will be Pete Romani. The club's treasurer will be David Makar and the club's membership chair will continue to be Ted Bryant. Dan Weed will serve as club chaplain and longtime members Lions Jim Rider and Niel Massa will serve as tail twisters.

According to Ted Bryant, "Continuing the Ithaca Lion Club's focus on serving the community, I am excited to explore new and impactful projects to bring value to our current and prospective members. The club has a long history of making a difference in Ithaca and beyond, and yet there is still so much more we can do together."

Since the club's chartering in 1951, its members have worked on a variety of projects in the local community, such as vision screenings, recycling of eye glasses and hearing aids, adopt-a-highway, and Lions Quest training. Proceeds from fundraising events in 2017 have gone to the Salvation Army, Loaves & Fishes, Gadabout, Lions Camp Badger, Leader Dog, and Canine Helpers totaling over $2,000 in donations. The club is currently preparing for a Chicken BBQ fundraiser coming up on Sunday, August 20th at 11am at Cass Park in Ithaca.
