Athens Lions Club


Ontario, Canada

Welcome to our Lions Club. This page has been accessed times since April 22nd, 1996.



The Athens Lions Club was established in 1961 and has been an active and thriving support to the local community.

Our Club's Board of Directors and general membership have a business meeting on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, with a regular dinner meeting held on the 4th Tuesday of every month. These meetings are held at our Lions Hall in the village of Athens at 7:00 pm. We are relatively small in numbers, but what we lack in size we make up for in effort!
