Our Club History...
The Arima Lions Club started as the Trinidad East Lions Club, and was inaugurated on May 24, 1967 at Chung’s Restaurant Arima with 20 members. The North Lions Club of Trinidad, whose president was the late Dr. Ken La Roche, sponsored the club. 
The club was charted on August 16, 1967 at the Scarlet Ibis Hotel, the charter being handed over by Lion Eugene Kasters of Suriname; the previous District Governor who was given the duty by the then District Governor Dr. Harry Carrington.

The Club is proud to note that we conducted dental programmes for school children, held youth camps and sponsored youths to participate in youth exchange programmes. Over the years...We also embarked on projects with a difference, such as:
The launch of the “Lawrence Cross Scholarship Award” in memory of our Charter President. This is given to a successful SEA student and a student of a regional Life Centre
“World of Work project where students of form 5 are given the opportunity to experience the operations of an organization for one day
Distribution of food Hampers at Christmas to "Relieve the Hunger"
We also engage in Environmental Projects, Health Fairs, Working with Older Persons and Chidren's Homes, Provide relief to families in need, Give aid to the Visually Impaired and the Disabled and the list goes on as we continue to provide outreach in our chartered area.
The reach of Arima Lions lies within the boundaries of the Pillars of Maturita in the East to Lopinot in the West and as far as La Fillette in the North to St Helena in the South.
Our Club hosts fundraisers to help fund our projects and may have two to three fundraisers each year. ALL proceeds from these fundraisers go to charity.
