Serving Our Community Together

Where There’s A Need There’s A Lion

Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better.

Ready to Help, Worldwide

That’s because we help where help is needed – in our own community of Winchester,  and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy. Where there’s a need, there’s a Lion. Lions are friends, family and neighbors who share a core belief: community is what we make it.

Lions are Ordinary People Creating Miracles Through Service. The Winchester Lions Club raises money and provides Community Services, so that we can fulfill the needs of our Community. We are proud of our community and club, and continue to strive to hold up to our motto…. “We Serve”

The Lions Club of Winchester was chartered in 1968 with the assistance of the Metcalfe Lions. Since its inception, the club has been serving the community of Winchester, Ontario and, in partnership with neighboring Lions Clubs, the Counties of North and South Dundas.

We Serve!

When it comes to meeting challenges, our response is simple: We serve. You don’t have to be a member to serve, Winchester Lions Club is always looking for “Friends of the Lions” to help with our community projects and to help-out in the Winchester Arena Booth or our Thrift Shop – Contact Us For More Info.

Be A Lion!

Join us in making a difference! You’ll join a local group of service-minded men and women who volunteer to support your community every day. You’ll also become a member of Lions Clubs International – a respected international organization, a leader in your local community, and a friend to people in need.

Meetings are held September through June, on the first and third Wednesday of each Month, at 7pm –  at the Winchester Lions Hall, 515 Albert Street.

Lions Clubs International offers a volunteer opportunity that fits your lifestyle. Whether you are looking to lend a helping hand or pursue a leadership role, Lions has an option for you. Being a Lion allows you to help change lives, and you can commit as much time as you wish and as your schedule allows.

So, Lions clubs are for women too?
Yes! Women have been serving in Lions clubs for years. In fact, women are the single fastest growing membership segment of Lions Clubs International

A club’s time commitment depends mainly on the service activities they undertake. We meet twice a month to plan projects, provide community service and conduct club business but we also understand if you can only volunteer on an occasional basis. We are happy with any time you can spend with us!

Our priorities are Family first, Work second and then Lions and we respect your application of these priorities when deciding which of our activities you can come out for and each Lion contributes what they can.

Volunteering your time not only helps those in need, but also gives you a sense of pride and accomplishment that comes from deep within

Lions help, where help is needed—in our own communities and around the world.

Our annual fees are modest (below $35 on average) and even less if you are eligible for a family pricing scheme. Additionally during most meetings we have a hot meal for $13 a plate.

Friends of the Lions
Even if you are not ready to become a Lion, the Winchester Lions Club has many opportunities for community members to simply lend a hand. Watch our facebook site or twitter feed and if something interests you just chime in. We have many volunteers working at our thrift shop and the arena canteen who are not Lions, and yes, our Insurance covers friends of the Lions
