Our History
         The Newmarket Lioness Club held its Certification Night on March 12, 1982, with twenty-seven Lioness as Charter Members.

         Our History is one of giving and compassion. We raise funds in many various ways, just to name a few, Fashion Shows, Turkey Dinners, and our most successful Western Dance. Our donations range from small things like providing medicine and glasses to local youngsters, Bed Kits for Sleeping Children, and serving lunch to CHATS. Larger projects include the Yellow Brick House, Camp Kirk, District Projects and the York Region Music Festival. We Provide financial services to the Pallative Care Unit, and purchase much needed items for the Cancer Unit at York County Hospital.

         In the year 1996/97 Past Presidents Lioness Shirley Williams and Lioness Dorothy
Fraser received their Lifetime Memberships, and in 1997/98, Lioness Julie Corval became a
Lifetime Member.

              We are pleased to number among our members three Lioness who have served District A-16 as Lioness District President.  These are Lioness Dale Jackson (1985-86), Lioness Marnie Boonstra (1986-87) and Lioness Candi Jones (1995-96). We are also pleased that Lioness Ruth Williams is serving as the District Lioness President for District A-16 this year.

              To all our members, past and present, thank you for all your support over the years, for helping others when there is need, without you the Newmarket Lioness could not exist.
