Lions Meetings

All our regular meetings, held the first and third Tuesday of each month, are dinner meetings. Before our meetings we get together at Silver Lake Market Building, 320 St. Patrick Street, 5:30 P.M. for a social hour, providing members an opportunity to discuss matters of interest and to just mingle in an informal environment. The Dinner meeting 6:45 P.M. is held at St. Paul's Parish Hall 302 St. George Street. The dinner is followed by our business meeting, committee reports and guest speakers from time to time. Our members are asked to visit clubs in the local Region, to maintain good relations and to share ideas about community needs.

Our October 2009 meeting took on a special significance when Lion Chief Jack presented Long Term Volunteer Awards issued by the Province of Ontario and our MPP Toby Barrett.

Annual A-2 Friendship Convention

District A-2 traditionally holds an annual Friendship Convention the last weekend in March (timing occasionally varies). The convention is a three day affair. Friday night is dedicated to hospitality suites by each club having a candidate running for elected office. Provides candidates an opportunity to share their visions with all comers in an informal environment. Candidates usually perform colourful, clever skits to woo voter support at the Saturday morning parade of clubs and cndidates. All in all the convention is a lot of fun with a great deal of business mingled in with the entertainment and guest speakers. Election of officers for the coming year is one of the major accomplishments of the convention. Conventions are a wonderful opportunity to meet Lions from across the land, sharing ideas while having a great time.

  Lions Celebrations

The Port Dover Lions dedicate the last meeting in June to Ladies night. Ladies night is a semi formal affair that allows Lions to share the evening with spouses, includes a great dinner with some entertainment. We also include our loved ones in the annual Christmas celebration, hosted by the Lion Chief.


  Youth Exchange

Annually the Lions sponsor a Youth Exchange program. Local youth get an opportunity to visit far away places taking in the beauty, learning about culture and customs of the places visited. Youth from around the world come to visit our country and partake of our culture and hospitality, while sharing a great time with youth from around the world, for two weeks. Many life time friendships and bonds have come out of these exchange visits.
