History of the Lions Club
The Lake Laberge Lions Club was chartered March 15, 1969 and has been a very active participant in Whitehorse's history. While we are, probably, best known for organizing the Yukon Trade Show every year, we have done many projects over the years.

In 1917 in Chicago, Melvin Jones, a Chicago businessman, started Lions Club International with the belief that local business clubs should expand their horizons from professional concerns to the betterment of their communities and the world at large. Lion's is now the largest service organization in the world and includes more than 1.3 million men and women, young and old. You will find us in more than 205 countries and geographical areas from the hinterlands of Australia and Brazil to thriving urban centers like New York City and Milan. We speak dozens of languages and vary in nature and customs around the world!

The Lake Laberge Lions Club has served our community, the Yukon, in humanitarian, enviromental, social and educational projects for over 40 years. With our successful fund raising endeavours we are able to support a wide range of community projects, focusing mainly on seniors and youth.

The future of the Lake Laberge Lions Club involves working for the betterment of OUR community.

We're Lions...
      and We Serve.
