Biographical history

The Vancouver Lions Ladies' Club was formed in 1937, the "object and purpose ... [being] to form an association of women, united in a common purpose to strengthen the bonds of friendship, to encourage participation in matters which are for the betterment of [the] community, and generally to promote and develop good citizenship." Members were women relatives or friends of a Lion or women sponsored by a member of the Lions Ladies' Club. In May 1937 Mrs. E. W. Andrews was elected first president. For over six decades the club raised funds for philanthropic work and made donations to various charitable institutions through garden parties, teas, fashion shows, rummage sales and bridge parties. In January 2002 a decision was taken to disband the club as it had been known since 1937 and to continue as a friendship group with monthly luncheons. The club disbanded in June 2004.
