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 —



Merrickville's annual two day event, August 3 & 4, 2019, celebrates the heritage of the Rideau Canal.


For 2019, this event will be held the long weekend in August.

of the period, live bands, artisans selling their wares, and the
