Farmers Market at Okauchee Lions Park.  Thank you to all who supported our 2022 Season.  We'll be back in May of 2023.  More info to come.

This month you can support Wisconsin Lions Foundation and our Wisconsin Lions Camp by donating to our Giving Tuesday fundraiser on November 29.


We are looking to raise funds for Wisconsin Lions Camp's cabin bins, which are used during quiet times, camper breaks, and for cabin bonding. 


All funds raised in our Giving Tuesday fundraiser will go directly to purchasing items to restock these bins and help us be more prepared for the 2023 season. We encourage you to give what you can, as every cent counts.


Please watch our Okauchee Lions Club Facebook page or the Wisconsin Lions Foundation Facebook page for the official Fundraiser, posted later this month. Thank you for supporting Wisconsin Lions Foundation!

Okauchee is a “community”.  From the residents, businesses, visitors, and lake go-ers of the Waukesha County Lake Area, the spirit of Okauchee is apparent.  The Okauchee Lions Club is grateful for this spirit as shown by the generosity of our financial donors, our contractors who donated all or parts of the material and labor costs, our family and friends who volunteered endless hours, our community who attended our function, and most importantly our families who shared us with the community. Updated Donor Board Completed April 2022.

The Lions Club motto is “we serve”.  Past, present and future, the Okauchee Lions will serve the community by having a park for public use.  Remember, the park receives no financial support from tax dollars yet operates like a public park.  All moneys used to operate the park are privately raised.  The park offers playgrounds for children of various ages, two baseball/softball diamonds, two volleyball courts, and reservations of the Bertrand Family Pavilion ( or 262-560-0532 and leave message) and preparation areas.

Calendar for availability:

Thank you to the greater Okauchee Community for your generosity and support.  The Lions will continue to “Serve” the public.

Opportunities to donate remain available for the completion of the pavilion, additional playground equipment, and lights on the baseball/softball diamonds.  For donation or membership information, contact any Okauchee Lion member or one of our officers:

Community Is What We Make It

Our goal is to create and foster a spirit of understanding amongst the peoples of the world. We believe in servicing our community by providing events, activities, sponsorship, and support to local and international charities that will not only strengthen our community, but meet the humanitarian needs of others, while encouraging peace and understanding of the world we live in to inspire future generations.
