Interested in Volunteering or Joining Lions

Looking to Serve? Want to Help

We are often asked if we are in need of additional volunteers to help with the Youth Dances. The answers is yes! If you are a High School student looking for volunteer hours or a parent who would like to help out occasionally, please use the Contact Us Menu item to make your enquiry. Include your contact information and we will get back to you as quickly as possible.

The St Jacobs Lions Club began offering K2K Dances every two months for kids in Grades 5 through 8 in November of 2009. Our goal was, and remains, to offer a safe, well supervised environment in which kids of similar ages could socialize in a co-ed environment; an environment which would be worry free for their parents.

Attendance at our first dance was 52. In October of 2010 we went monthly and reached the operating costs break-even point of 140 attendees. Since then our average attendance has been 250 with a total of 18,100 kids attending. The response from the kids and the confidence demonstrated by their parents has been most gratifying.

The goal has never been to operate the dances as a fundraiser. From the start we have taken the net proceeds from our dances and donated them in support of other youth-oriented events and programs.

Events of this nature require operational time before and after each dance as well as a good deal of supervision during the event itself. We strive for an adult presence of 15 for each dance. In a small club of 25 members this is no small undertaking. It is a testament to the dedication and commitment of our members, each of whom give up a Friday evening from 6 :00 PM until 10:30 PM each month.

We need your assistance. Like everyone, our Lions have many other work, personal, family and social involvements. If two or three parents were to volunteer to supervise one dance throughout the year our dedicated group of Lions could take the occasional evening off. There are no special skills needed beyond caring about how are kids grow up. Please give some thought to helping us out; even once a year.

Lions Clubs are groups of men and women who identify and work towards fulfilling needs within the community and throughout the world.

The St Jacobs Lions Club meets on the first and third Thursdays of each month at the St Jacobs Lions Hall at 6:30 PM.
