Welcome to

Uxbridge & District Lions Club.

This year, 2020, our club celebrates its 46th year of service to our community! On June 10th, 2017. I had the honour of being installed as the New Club President for this club that has such a strong history of working together, contributing talents for the common good. We serve- a motto we live here in Uxbridge!

In 1974 our club was officially chartered. Many community projects have marked the past efforts of the club. Several guide dogs have been provided at no cost to the recipient families. The Cottage Hospital with some much-needed medical equipment. We regularly support the Uxbridge Minor Hockey Association through our Annual Pancake Breakfast. Past events such as the Soap Box Derby, and Drown Old Man Winter have made for some fun times.

Uxbridge Lions Current Projects

Universal Playground -

Fully Accessible for All

April 2020
 

The Uxbridge Lions are embarking on a new community project, with a proposal for a universal playground in Elgin Park.

A committee has been created to work on this project and we are looking for people interested in joining our committee to help us raise funds for a new fully accessible playground in Elgin Park to accommodate people with all abilities to upgrade an existing play structure.

The proposed play structure would be fully accessible to children of all abilities and would replace the older playground that currently sits beside the ball diamond to the north of the main path. That play structure is scheduled for replacement in the next two years.

“Our motto is We Serve, and our slogan is Where There’s a Need, There’s a Lion, and over a year ago we identified a need,” said Bob Armitage, secretary of the Uxbridge Lions, during a presentation to council on Aug. 9.

 

“Imagine a child not being able to get on a swing and not feeling that rush of pleasure we remember as a child and that we took for granted. We’re trying to bring inclusivity into town. I think it’s an important topic these days, and it will also be a destination. Elgin Park is already host to a number of events throughout the year, and this would, hopefully, bring a broader audience and increase accessibility to the park by the community.”
