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. We currently meet at LePanto Banquet Hall & Catering
Fundraisers in the early years included door-to-door light bulb sales, pancake breakfasts, fish boils and raffles. Currently; Port Washington Fish Day, Lionsfest/Fish Derby, Wild Game Dinner, Upper Lake Park Beer Gardens, Candy sales and the Calendar Raffle provide an outlet to raise funds.
11am – 8pm. Upper Lake Park Lions Pavilion. Hope to see you all there. It will be a great time with the Authentic Folk music from the German band Dorf Kapelle from 4-8pm, Hammer-Schlagen, Food and Fun! Bring your friends and family!
