The principal fund-raising activities of Metcalfe Lions Club are:

Bingo - We operate a bingo every Christmas in which we distribute turkeys, wine and cash as prizes. We also operate a penny bingo for the seniors in the Township of Care Centre every Monday evening.

Euchre - Every Thursday at 7:15 pm at the Den, from October to June under the friendly care of Lion Ron Isaac. This is more of a community service than a fund-raiser.

Canteen - Our new, larger and greatly improved canteen is open every Saturday morning in the Metcalfe Fairground from 7 am to noon throughout the summer (when the Metcalfe Farmers' Market is in operation) and every day from 7 am to 9 pm during the annual Metcalfe Fair which is held during the last week in September. Our most popular breakfast speciality is Bacon n' Egg on a Bun, but our large and excellent selection of good and tasty food at very competitive prices should also provide a treat for your palate.

Community Birthday Calendar - contains thousands of birthdays, anniversaries, etc., of local and family interest. Ready for delivery to relatives, friends, etc. before November each year.


Farmers' Night Auction - On the 4th Wednesday of every November we invite farmers, real and wannabee, to a grand meal, entertainment and an auction of numerous valuable and exciting items. Over the years everyone has had a thoroughly enjoyable evening.


For over 50 years our club has, through the work of its dedicated members, provided support for many local, national and international causes. In particular we have supported the Township of Osgoode Care Centre, Winchester & District Hospital, local schools, local hockey, soccer, ringette and scouts associations, Township of Osgoode Home Support (Now ROSSS), Metcalfe Co-Op Nursery School, Children's Wish Foundation, VON, Ottawa Heart Institute, Canadian Cancer Society, CNIB, Easter Seals Campaign and many, many more worthy causes. Recently we have honured our commitments of $25,000 to both Winchester Hospital and The Osgoode Care Centre to assist with their expansion projects and we have also donated a further $15,000 to Winchester Hospital for specialised equipment. We have also donated $10,000 to the Osgoode Care Centre's 2012 fundraiser to upgrade rundown equipment for residents.

New members are always very welcome. If you wish to find out more about us, please contact any club member. He or she would be happy to provide you with all the necessary information about our club.
