Welcome To
Navan Lions Club

Navan, Ontario, Canada

About US

Our small but vigorous club has been serving the community of Navan, near Ottawa, since 1952.

Serving Our Community

This is where to find out about the services we can provide, including support to other community organisations.

Our Favorite Causes

Most of our activities involve fundraising and giving the money to individuals in need or to larger causes.

Fundraising

How do we do it, how much do we raise and where does it go?

Lions Worldwide

More than 1.4 million Lions in over 200 countries are responding to local and global challenges with kindness and care.

Coming Up

Mark your calendars for the following dates in 2024

Thursday 8 to Sunday 11 August; Navan Fair – Get convenient parking while enjoying the fair by making a small donation.   Look for our float in the parade on Saturday and donate to the Hannah Billings fund by buying 50/50 draw tickets at the demolition derby. 

HELP!  VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

Please note that we depend on the assistance of many friends and family to help us with the Fair Parking. This is one of our biggest fundraisers for the year and you can be a part of it.

Students can get volunteer hours credit. Volunteers will be paired with a Lion member. Each shift lasts between 2-3 hours.  If you have helped in previous years, you should have received an email inviting you to participate again and providing more details. If you have not received that email and require more information, you can request a copy or contact Tony Fiorentino HERE.

We are now registering volunteers online through the link below. Once registered, you will receive an acknowledgement of your registration and timely reminders of your shift booking(s). 

Once again, this great fund raising opportunity is made possible by the generosity of our friends at the New Oak Tree and Navan Autopro. Please support their businesses.

NAVAN LIONS 7TH ANNUAL GOLF TOURNAMENT

 T he Navan Lions held their 7th annual charity golf tournament on June 7th at the Pine view golf Course. The weather could have been more accommodating with the Marshal stopping golfers after 7 holes due to lightning and thunder. We wish to thank everyone who attended and the many sponsors who continually help to make the day a huge success including our lead sponsor, Low Murchison Radnoff LLP! We are proud to say that The Make-a-Wish Foundation Canada, received a $4,000 cheque that day and various other charities supported by the Navan Lions Club will be receiving the balance of funds raised at this great tournament.

MUSIC IN THE PARK

For the third year in a row, the Navan Lions Club was pleased to be able to serve a BBQ dinner to community members who attended the 1st concert of the Music in the Park series on June 5th. The NCA sponsored the BBQ and the money collected through donations was donated to the Pavilion project. Throughout the BBQ and into the evening everyone enjoyed the lively sounds of the Orleans Jazz Band. It was a great start to the concerts!

SUPPORTING ISARUIT INUIT ARTS

The Navan Lions were recently able to present a cheque to our friends at Isaruit Inuit Arts as continuing support for their cultural preservation work and supporting activities for the 6000+ Inuit living in the Ottawa area. During a visit to their recently expanded facilities in the old Rideau High School, they showed us their rooms for sewing, weaving, carving, making traditional tools and preparing seal skins for both artistic and practical use. They also have various teaching programs and are contributing to the revival of the Inuktitut language in an environment that is a welcoming home away from home. You can learn more about them by visiting www.isaruit.ca
