It is with heavy hearts that the Russell Lions Club has decided to cancel its annual Lobsterfeast. With the recent Covid 19 outbreak and our need to practice social distancing, the club feels that such an event simply cannot take place. This would have been our 34th year hosting Lobsterfeast. To all the hundreds of ‘feast’ participants, the countless volunteers who would have helped and to the suppliers, we apologize for this disappointing news.

Our efforts to promote “social distancing” has also forced us to cancel plans for our annual Pancake Breakfast with the Easter Bunny that was going to be held next month.

Also affected is the Video Game Tournament organized by our Student Lions for May 2nd. It too has been cancelled.

Lastly, our annual Food Drive that was to occur in late April will only be postponed to a later date. Our club feels that, with recent health events, that the need in our community will be greatly increased. Our club will be there in the upcoming time of need. Stay safe.

2020 Food Drive -POSTPONED-

The Lions' will come a-knockin' and we'll surely prove yet again that Russell is an incredibly generous town!

Some of you wait all year to greet a Lion at your door and some of you simply leave boxes and bags on your doorstep filled with food (so we don't interrupt much deserved sleeping-in)!

Remember: non-perishable food, bath & hygiene supplies are preferable.

2020 Canada Day Celebrations -CANCELLED-

Another favourite – small town Canada Day celebrations! A fun day for the whole family with great entertainment, kids games, fireworks, and more! See you at the Russell Lions Ball Park!

here to see our dedicated Canada Day page.

More activities will be added to the schedule in the weeks and months before Canada Day, so stay tuned!

2020 Christmas Cake Sale -CANCELLED-

Though we are still far away from the Christmas season, we have received a few requests for and questions about our annual sale of Christmas fruit cakes and chocolates. Now is as good a time as any to share the unfortunate news that we will not be selling Christmas cakes and chocolates to the public this year. We came to this decision due to the financial commitment we’d have to undertake and the delicate matter to how to sell cakes on a large scale while mitigating the COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines.

Despite this sad news, we want to reassure everyone that, though we won’t be selling cakes to the public, we will still be giving out Christmas fruit cakes to the handful of local residents who we have traditionally given cakes to. This is a long standing Christmas tradition for our club and it will continue, albeit in a way that respects COVID-19 health guidelines.
