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.
