New Lions Club for South Stormont

Lions Club Logo ResizedA new Lions Club Invites Community to Join and Make a Difference


A core group of current and past Lions have made an application with Lions International to charter a new, Traditional Lions Club to serve the needs of Long Sault/Ingleside & District.  This core group has a combined service of approximately 100 years to date and is seeking civic-minded men and women to join them in making a difference in the community. The group is hosting an information session on April 23rd at 7 pm at the Trinity United Church on Maple Street in Ingleside for people who want to learn more about the club and its plans.   There will be refreshments and special guests to inform you about the great works of Lions Clubs.


A Lions Club gives members an opportunity to advance worthy causes, serve with friends, and become leaders in the community.   Being a Lion gives you the chance to give back to the community, help those people in need and introduce new projects.  There is no limit to where or how many community-based clubs can be formed.  This Lions Club will be open to men and women having attained the age of majority.  Couples are encouraged to join as a team.


The Lions’ motto is “We Serve,” and the yet-to-be-named club will live up to it.   Suggested names include ‘Upper Canada Lions Club’, ‘South Stormont Lions Club’, or  ‘Long Sault/Ingleside District Lions Club’.  A final selection will be made at an organization meeting to be held shortly thereafter at which time an executive will be chosen.


Lions Clubs International is the largest service club organization in the world. Its 1.35 million members in more than 46,000 clubs are serving communities in 207 countries and geographical areas around the globe. Since 1917, Lions clubs have aided the blind and visually impaired, championed youth initiatives and strengthened local communities through hands-on service and humanitarian projects.
