Chippawa Lions host a community celebration highlighting service
Established in 1941, the Chippawa Lions Club has a long legacy of service. We have a rich history of serving the citizens of Chippawa and area, Niagara Falls and the world. We assist people with special needs attend a camp so the family can enjoy a vacation. These camps include Camp Dorset (a dialysis camp), Camp Lake Joseph (a camp for the blind), Camp Trillium (a camp for people with cancer) and several others. The Chippawa Lions also support Lion’s Quest. This is a school-based life skills program for children from kindergarten to grade 12. We assist organizations and families in need by donating funds that assist in project delivery.
Our greatest accomplishments include the establishment of the Chippawa Lions Park and the building of the Chippawa Lion’s Community Centre, located at 3970 Welland St., Chippawa, Ontario. In 1999 we established the Chippawa Lions Fitness Pathway with Heart Niagara and our community.
Lions Club International was founded in 1917 and will celebrate their 100th anniversary this year also. There are more than 46,000 Lions Clubs in 207 countries or geographical areas in the world. Lions Club International is always expanding their focus to help meet the ever-increasing needs of our global communities. Lions Clubs have offered men and women the opportunity to give back to their communities. Members get involved in local projects such as maintaining parks, sponsoring local sports teams, helping a neighbour less fortunate and causes near and dear to their own local community.
