Thank you for considering membership in the Orillia Lions Club.

Singularly we can do a lot, together we can achieve greatness.

For your consideration, here are a few facts about our club.

We support many initiatives such as the following;

Work with the local youth groups.

Youth camps.

People with a handicap.

Boys and girls’ minor sports.

Environmental projects and initiatives

Camp Dorset in Muskoka provides people requiring dialysis an opportunity to spend a week of vacation and receive dialysis at the camp.

Parry Sound, Lake Joseph, a camp for the blind.

Camp Huronda in Huntsville - Diabetes camp

In Oakville we have a dog school, training dogs for the blind, the deaf and special needs

How do we raise money for these projects?  The following are our major fundraisers:

Lions/Rotary Funfest Civic Holiday weekend

Yearly 200 Club draw (Monthly draw for $50.00 and $75.00 plus an annual draw for $1,000.)

Annual Lions Golf Tournament at Couchiching Golf Club

BINGO at the Geneva Bingo Hall

Being a Lion is very rewarding, you can see the results of what you do.  The funny thing is, having that reward is all that you do it for, there is no pay.  In fact, you do have to pay dues and give up some of your free time.  But that is small payment for the satisfaction received.  As of July 1, 2022, annaul dues are $100.00 with an additional one-time Lions International Initiation fee of $50.00.

Wouldn’t you be proud to be a Lion in this community with all that the Club has done, and for all that it can still do?

We look forward to meeting you in the near future!
