Up Coming Events and Opportunities - In and Around Oak Ridges

The Oak Ridges Lions would like to encourage all our friends and neighbours to continue to support each other with "Covid Compliant" activities.  While we were saddened to have to CANCEL our environmental and community supportive events this spring due to COVID, we are happy to let you know about a few upcoming events that you can continue to be a part of in spite of lockdown!   

Coming soon, we'll have some very exciting news about an event you can take part in this summer to help conquer Childhood Cancer right here in York Region!.. Stay tuned and get ready to participate!

Please consider joining us at these events, and feel free to spread the word!  Being an active member of your community helps us all!   Add these events to your calendar and we look forward to "seeing" you online, and personally at our future events in the fall!:)


Community Conversations                     

Ward 4 Councillor, David West has implemented a series of informal “Community Conversations” to engage residents in meaningful conversations and to provide useful information while we continue to grapple with the physical distance regulations that the pandemic demands of us.  

His “conversations” are open to all residents of Richmond Hill.

His upcoming “Conversation” is centred on the City’s Public Works department.  From roads and parks to water and trees, you may be surprised at the many different ways we are all supported by the Public Works team.  Please join residents from all over the city as these vital components of our community, and how City staff help to ensure their continued success, are discussed.

Schedule of Community Conversations:

May 27th: A Day in the Life of Richmond Hill Public Works;

June 24th: Considering "Local Food";

July 14th: Launch of The 2nd annual Richmond Hill Ward 4 Monarch Butterfly Tagging Challenge with Monarch Crusader Carol Pasternak

September TBA.

He will continue to host these Community Conversations on the Zoom platform from 7:30-8:30 until we can meet safely in person.

Environment Strategy: Progress and Evolution  

Richmond Hill’s Environment Strategy, “Greening the Hill: Our Community, Our Future” helps plan and coordinate efforts for the City and the community to protect, enhance and restore the natural environment.

Richmond Hill has released its first Environmental Scorecard to showcase progress and trends from the first five years of Greening the Hill (2015-2019).

Informed by the Scorecard and feedback from residents and stakeholders, Richmond Hill will update the Strategy with public consultation taking place through 2021-22.

Please visit to view the Scorecard and to learn how you can get involved!

In the past, Oak Ridges Lions Club met twice a month at 70 Old Colony Road, upstairs in the Norm Taylor Room of the Oak Ridges Recreation Centre (Bond Lake Arena). 

COVID and 2020 changed all that!

We now meet virtually, monthly via Zoom on the second Wednesday of each month (excluding July and August).  If you, or someone you know, would like to join our meeting, please reach out to our Club President, Walter!

Meeting Time:  

 2nd Wednesday of the month (except July and August). 

Currently, meetings take place via Zoom, and start at 7:00pm

Meeting Location:  

Once we are able to meet in person again, our meeting place will be back at the Norm Taylor Room 2nd floor, Bond Lake Arena.   Please send us a note or call us if you plan to attend a meeting.
