Club Activities Scheduled for 2021-2022

The members of the Lions Club of Russell are an active group. Not only do we organize a significant number of fundraising events each year, we're also active participants in our community, Russell Township.

This year's events are listed below. If you have questions about any of the events, just send us an email.

 
The Russell Lions Club presents: the RCMP Musical Ride! (September 10th, 2022)

Yes! The rumors are true! The Russell Lions Club is proud to present the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Musical Ride. A Canadian tradition since 1876, a troop of 32 scarlet coated “Mounties” on majestic black horses present a 30 minute show of intricate figures and cavalry drills choreographed to music.

Take advantage of this truly Canadian experience and see one of our national treasures perform live at the Russell Fair Grounds (1076 Concession Street, Russell, Ontario) on September 10th, 2022. The excitement starts at 5:00 p.m.!

Tickets will go on sale soon and will be $10 for adults, $5 for youth (between 5 and 13 years of age) and FREE for children under 5! We will be listing here the locations where tickets will be sold soon.

Come back here for more information as the date gets closer. We have a page dedicated to the Musical Ride
here.

The Russell Lions Club Angel Trees are now up! They are located at the Russell Home Hardware and the Downtown IDA Pharmacy. The Angel Trees will be up until December 7th, 2022. The demand is higher this year and we need the generous people of Russell to help out.

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.

 
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!

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

 
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.
