Not sure what a Lion is…… or what we do?

We are ordinary people who come from all walks of life. We might have any type of job or  career or may even be retired.

We join together in fellowship to serve humanity without thought to race, creed,  nationality, religion or politics.

The motto of all Lions Clubs is “WE SERVE”, and each club decides where  and how they will serve.

Lions are people just like YOU.  You can make a difference in your region and the world.

Please consider joining us to help make a positive and lasting partnership in your community.

Our Club

Our club #014615 was chartered April 23, 1970 as the "North Oshawa Lions Club" and now is one of three Lions Clubs in Oshawa. We are now one of 54 clubs in Lions District 16 of Multiple District "A".

Activities

The Murray McKinnon Foundation  - Provides the Board of Directors, for the Murray McKinnon Foundation which operates three young offender detention facilities, and a drop-in center in Ontario for the provincial government .” 

We help support many groups in the area such as Big Brothers/Sisters, Boys and Girls Club of Durham, Simcoe Hall Settlement House Christmas Fund, Grandview Children's Treatment Centre and the Salvation Army Christmas Fund, and also have assisted individuals with special needs.

Celebrating Graduation From Lions Dog Training School

An official Lions Clubs International Eyeglass Recycling Program provides recycled eyewear free of charge to people in developing countries. Our club has helped collect eye glasses for this program for many years sending them off to our Canadian Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centre.

Also like most of the Lions in our District we support our
Lions Clubs Camp Kirk Foundation. This is a Lions District 16 project located on about 100 acres near Kirkfield, Ontario, which the Foundation owns and maintains. Camp Kirk which is a camp for children with learning disabilities is operated during the summer season on this property by the "Friends of the Learning Disabled".

Fund Raising

Like all charitable groups, the ability of our club to assist those individuals in need and support the many deserving organizations and projects, is totally dependent on the success of our fund raising activities.

The largest fund raiser we have is our annual draw and for the last few years this has been a classic car draw.  Each year we look around and through our many contacts purchase a car to raffle.  We hold the draw for this car at the annual
Auto Fest car show held each August here in Oshawa.  Check out the Car Link to this annual draw for the current car and winners from the past.

Another fund raiser that we have carried on for many years has been the marketing of plastic wrap.  This we provide to many groups such as hockey or soccer teams schools or choirs, etc. who in turn use it to raise needed funds for their groups.  Check out the
link to this great fund raiser.

Of course at Christmas we have the
Lions Christmas Cakes which are a favourite during the festive season and make ideal gifts for family and friends.  Check out our link above.

If you would like any of these just get hold of any of the contacts listed anywhere on this site and they will we happy to help you, or email us at: info@northoshawalions.org.
