Magnetawan Lions Club

The Magnetawan Lion’s Club is dedicated to supporting the Municipality of Magnetawan in many ways.

Magnetawan Lions Club - our motto is We serve. Service to the community is our primary focus. We do this by offering programs such as: 52 years of free swim classes for children, scholarships for local students pursuing post-secondary education, funding various Magnetawan Public School and Almaguin Highlands Secondary School activities. We also provide financial assistance to residents who are required to travel regularly for medical purposes and the purchase of various medical aids like beds and wheelchairs. We also provide food baskets to help families displaced by fire. Thanks to support of our generous community we are able to offer the yearly Christmas basket program to over 30 families/individuals. 

One of the most notable services they provide to the community is the Swimming Lessons free of charge for three weeks in the summer at Centennial Park.

The Magnetawan Lions Swimming Lessons for 2024 are planned for July 15th to August 2nd.

Magnetawan Agricultural Society 

The Magnetawan Agricultural Society began in 1877 as a social event for the pioneer families in our area. They displayed their talents and industry that they had brought with them from overseas and how they adapted and progressed living in the harsh climate of northern Ontario.
This tradition continues today and provides means of encouraging interest, promoting improvements in and advances the standards of agriculture, domestic industry, and rural life. It’s not just for local people but to educate the general public. There are children from the city that really believe milk comes in clear plastic bags and that chickens lay more than one egg each day. Our Annual Fall Fair provides a lot of fun for the family, through exhibits, displays, demonstrations and musical entertainment.
