The 2020 calendars are now available for sale. You can buy one from any Lion member or purchase one from the Country Kitchen, New Beginnings, Westport Village Pharmacy and Westport Home Hardware.

Any organization or individual who wishes to be included in our fall donations to the community must submit it in writing by the end of October. You can email your request to or send it to Westport Lions Club, P.O. Box 428, Westport, ON K0G 1X0.

Lion David Blair is organizing a night of bowling at the Elgin Bowling Lanes on Friday, September 27th. Members of the community as well as Lions are welcome to participate in this non-competitive event. The cost for three games and shoe rental is $15.00. If you are interested, please contact Dave at 613-273-9255 or email him at

The Westport Lions Club would like to thank all our volunteers who help us with our service to the community. Without them, and the financial support we receive from the community, we would not be able to sustain all of our programs. To paraphrase the slogan from Public Broadcasting Service, the Lion services are made possible by the hard work of Lion members and people like you.
