When a group of people join together, roll up their sleeves and take action on projects to make their community better, it’s a beautiful thing—and an incredible feeling for everyone involved. That’s Lions. Being a Lion is about leading by example, building relationships and improving the world through kindness. It’s how caring men and women serve together so they can make an even greater impact and change more lives.

The Wellington District Lions Club is based in Wellington but serves all of Prince Edward County. One of our goals for 2019 is to form a new group of energetic Lions who are more interested in community projects and service activities rather than attending meetings.

Give back in 2019.  Join today.  Email: if you have any questions or for more information.


Announcing Wellington District Lions 3rd Annual Effective Speaking Contest











On Sunday, May 27th, the Wellington District Lions together with the Belleville, Foxboro, Melrose, Trenton and Napanee Lions will host the Annual Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides in Belleville.  Register, come out for a day of fresh air and fun and collect pledges.  100% of all funds raised will go to the Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guide program. Register here.



Thank You!

To everyone who helped organize the evening at the Waring House, to those who performed, to the businesses and individuals who donated silent and live auction items, to the Waring House for providing the venue, food and bar, to those who came out to support the cause.  It was an incredible night in so many ways, where the community came together and raised more than $27,000!  All funds raised will help pay for Andrea's operation. 

On Friday, March 9, from 7until 11 PM The Waring House will be hosting a fundraising evening of music, dancing and auction items, to help the Taylor family raise the funds necessary to get life saving surgery in Cleveland for their daughter, Andrea. The Reasons, The Frere Brothers, Instant Rivalry and Seventh Town have all donated their time and talent to this event, and will surely be joined by a host of other County musicians to aid the cause. Admission will be by donation.

The Wellington District Lions Club provided lots of fun at the local Family Day event.  From photos with the Dukes and Harry the Dragon to old fashioned board games, a craft and colouring table and free hot chocolate and Tim Bits, there was something for everyone.  Thank you everyone for coming out to spend your Family Day with us!



On Saturday, February 10, the Wellington District Lions Club held its second annual Effective Speaking Contest.  The Contest is designed to give children and youth in grades 4-12 an aopportunity to prepare and present a speech on a topic of their choice.  Speeches are judged on a content and delivery matrix and the judges gave feedback on the speeches to the participants.  This year we had entries in the Junior and Intermediate categories.  Though there were not a lot of speakers, the quality of the speeches impressed the three judges.  The winner in the Junior category was Kate Jones, a grade 6 student from St. Gregory Catholic School and the winner in the Intermediate category was Gabrielle Kinnear, a grade 7 student from St. Gregory Catholic School.

Winners from this contest are able to proceed to the Lions District finals in Peteroborough on March 24.  Winners from the District finals can proceed to the Ontario finals in May in St. Catharines.  Winners at that level may win up to $500.

Next year our Effective Speaking contest will be held a little later, on March 2, 2019.  We are hoping that the later date will encourage some students from secondary school to register and compete.  Speeches can be delivered in English or French.




The winners of the Wellington District Lions Club shopping spree recently had their shot at taking home as many groceries as they could fill their cart with in four minutes on Tuesday morning at No Frills in Picton. First prize winner Moira Coull won a value of up to $700 and the second prize winner Heather Harris a value of up to $400. Harris was not the original winner of the prize, but was given the prize as a gift from her employer, Johannes Kunert of the Wellington Bakery. Thank you to all who bought tickets on the draw. All funds raised will go back into our community.

Congratulations Moira and Heather!

Wellington is a colorful, historic lakefront village of about 2000 in the County of Prince Edward.  Prince Edward County (THE County, as it is known locally) is located as a large peninsula in Lake Ontario on the Canadian side, more or less opposite Rochester, New York.  It is famous for Sandbanks Park and for the many outstanding wineries.
