The Armstrong Lions Club Chartered in 1982 and has provided major aid to those in need in the Armstrong/Spallumcheen, and the larger community, in our attempt to make this a better place to live.

During the past few years, the Armstrong Lions Club has raised in excess of $100,000 through various fundraising projects including;

  • Raffle for a side of Pork
  • Lions Bingo on Tuesday Nights
  • Food Concessions
  • IPE Charity Crown and Anchor Wheel
  • Harvest Dinner and Dance
  • Pancake Breakfasts
  • Spring Break Out Dinner and Dance
  • Catering
  • Fair Bingo
  • Mystery Dinner, Dance and Silent Auction
  • Residential Happy Hour Service
  • July 1st Activities
  • Old Fashioned Family Picnic
  • Salmon Barbeques


Money raised from the public goes back to the community in donations and services. We pride ourselves in having provided many items for the city such as the new playground equipment at Memorial Park, construction of the Gazebo at Memorial Park for family gatherings, picnics and music in the park. We experience fun and fellowship providing help where it is needed. We are currently fundraising for a Service Dog to be placed with a resident in the Armstrong area and our goal is to raise $25,000. In 2017 we fundraised successfully $108,000 to replace the ARGON Eye Laser used at the Lions Eye Centre at the Pleasant Valley Health Centre in Armstong.  We united with the Enderby, Sicamous, Lumby and Vernon Lions, as well with strong community support from the Armstrong Legion, Armstrong Ladies Club, Haugen Centre, with a major contribution from Askew's Foods and a $50,000 donation from ASHA, the Bargain Bin in Armstrong.  This Laser provides medical treatment for residents of the North Okanagan and beyond and is a legacy to Lion Tom Nordstrom who pioneered this project over 20 years ago.

In 2018 we were recognized by Askew's as their choice as Armstrongs recipient for their charity give away as we are becoming recognized as a service organization in Armstrong worthy of recognition.

We are proud to have donated money, goods and time to the following;

  • Lions Vision Center
  • Lions Park, Hunter Avenue,
  • Benches throughout the city
  • Bus Shelters
  • Secondary School Scholarships
  • Haugen Healthcare Society
  • Lions Foundation of Canada (Guide Dogs)
  • Lions Society for Children with Disabilities

  • Easter Seal House in Vanocuver
  • Camp Winfield in Lake Country
  • North Okanagan Minor Lacrosse
  • Minor League Hockey
  • 4-H Clubs

In 2018 we joined with the Armstrong Legion to spearhead the community Christmas Food Drive and collected over 6600 pounds of food for the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club Armstrong Food Bank.
