Lions Club of Merrickville - Welcome!

The Lions Club of Merrickville has experienced many changes and challenges in its lifetime. Today, we are a small but exceptionally active club with a strong, visible community presence. The Lions have been an integral part of the Merrickville-Wolford community for over half a century and have take on or supported many community projects. We look forward to providing even greater support to other valuable projects in our community and beyond.

The Lions Club of Merrickville hold true to our motto —

"WE SERVE"
