Welcome to the


Multiple District "A"


The Lions Club of Barrie was chartered in 1931 by 25 thoughtful men who believed in their community. In Canada it was the great depression and soup kitchens were  plentiful. Western Canada was parched by the most ravaging draught in the country's history. 
Canadians were singing God Save the King, and raising their water glasses to King George V.
An evening service organization,  the LIons Club of Barrie was born. A charter member and chairman of the inaugural meeting on October 18, 1931 was Bill Bell, a High School Music Teacher.Twenty-five new members attended the charter night.
It's the energies of a group of people directed toward common goals that have given the members of the Lions Club of Barrie that quiet fortitude that has carried them along the service club path for three quarters of a century.
On July 4,1986 the club purchased the Embassy Hall which was renamed the Lions Hall. Since then a substantial amount of money has been raised through the hall rental for special occasions.


New members are always welcome. Please contact the Webmaster or the Membership Director, 705-881-6384 for further information.


Lions of Barrie                                   

                          386 Blake St


                    Open house September 18



Hi   I’m Ed Prins of the Barrie Lions Club @386 Blake St. Due to overwhelming response and requests last year. The Lions are again holding an open house on Sept 18. The open house is to get many of the service organizations together (such as Barrie out of the Cold, Elizabeth Fry, Barrie Food Bank, Salvation Army, Women’s Crisis, Busby Centre and many more).

The reason for this open house many of these societies we have heard but know very little about, so Lions are holding an Open House so we can better understand what these organizations do for our community, to learn about each other and from each other, where we can help organizations to reach their objectives, to ask questions, pass on information and for organizations to pass out information on what they are doing and where.


All this and more to make our community a better place to live!

To make this work:  The Lions are providing the hall, tables and coffee for free.

I hope you can be part of this Lions 2nd Open house


 Also participating with this event are some private companies. It should be a good night.


The night will start @6 PM opening the doors, to allow set up for tables and chairs

Officially starts at 7 PM till 9PM.


I do hope you can be there.


Our President Ed Prins


 Lion Sue Chapman, Secretary.
