The Duck Race is coming back - virtually !!
The Nith in full flow over the Caul just recently. To think that was used as the finish line for our raft races and our duck races - the first raft or duck over the Caul was the winner. Viewers will be pleased to learn that we waited for the river to be MUCH lower.

Good news; Dumfries Lions Club is now recognised by the Scottish Charity regulator (OSCR) as a charity. That will increase public confidence in the the Club and increase the Club's opportunities to serve the community.

The Dumfries Lions Club was formed in November 1981 and we meet on the second Monday of the month at 7.30pm in the Cairndale Hotel, Dumfries. At present we have a membership of 22 which consists of a mixture of people, including ladies, of different ages and from a wide range of backgrounds.

Our Club is part of the International Association of Lions Club which is the largest community service organisation of its type in the world. Help for the local community is the prime object of any Lions Club because our motto is "We Serve". We like to think of ourselves as good doers rather than "do gooders" and we are people who care about people. We are willing to serve our community and we enjoy fellowship and get satisfaction from participating in a job well done.


Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with more than 1.4 million members in approximately 46,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world.
