The Chilliwack Lions Club has a new home.
On Saturday, the club celebrated the grand opening of its new building at 9233 Main St. with an open house featuring music, mingling, and snacks.
The club, which used to be located in a hall on Hope River Road, hasn’t had a place to call home for the past five or six years. During that time, they would hold their meetings in restaurants.
The Chilliwack Lions Club did run a thrift store on Yale Road which closed earlier this year after 12 years in business.
The club’s new hall (formerly the Chilliwack Senior Veterans’ Society building) will have carpet bowling and darts on Mondays, bridge and crib Tuesdays, chair yoga Mondays and Tuesdays, and bingo on Wednesdays and Fridays.
They also host the Chilliwack Lions Club Music and Dance Festival every year.
The Chilliwack Lions Club is our city’s original Lions Club, and one of four here in Chilliwack. The others are: Mt. Cheam Lions, Dogwood Monarch Lions, and Stellar’s Jay Lions.
