Club History

Our club’s sponsor -

 Lion Richard “Dick” Kapp

and his wife Jeanette

In 1971, Dick Kapp, a member of the Germantown Lions Club, decided it was time that Port Washington had its own Lions Club.  With his persuasion and with the Germantown club as a sponsor, the Port Washington Lions Club was chartered on January 20, 1971.  The first meetings were conducted at the former Mayer Hotel.  In 1974, the Club settled in at the former D&G Club and remained there until 1993.

Fundraisers in the early years included door-to-door light bulb sales, pancake breakfasts at the American Legion Post, fish boils and raffles.  Currently Port Washington Fish Day, Lionsfest/Fish Derby and a raffle calendar provide an outlet to raise funds.
