THE PORT EDWARDS LIONS
 
Chartered in 1965, the Port Edwards Lions Club has served Port Edwards and surrounding communities – and also the handicapped throughout Wisconsin and even around the world - with volunteer workers, financial assistance, and good citizenship.
 
The Port Edwards Lions meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month at 6:00 P.M. at the Edwards-Alexander Park Shelter House, 210 – 2nd Street, Port Edwards. Our meetings include social time, a dinner, a business meeting, and frequently a guest speaker, along with fun and fellowship.
 
Members pay annual dues of $70.00. Dinners cost $10.00. Guests and prospective members are always welcome. Your first meeting and dinner are free. Get acquainted with us. You will be proud to be a Lion!
 
The Port Edwards Lions welcome women as well as men. Last year 33% of new Lions members worldwide were women.
