Lions Friendship Arch and Lions Benches

The Lions Friendship Arch began as a symbol of the friendship between the Lions of the United States and the Lions of Canada.  It is now used to symbolize the friendship of Lions in the communities in which they live and serve.

The Gloucester Lions Friendship Arch is located outside the Gloucester Seniors Centre at 4550 Bank Street.  The purchase of this Arch was as a result of memorial donations from friends and family of the Depper family and is in memory of one of our founding members Lion Roy Depper.

Our first|Lions Bench is located in the lobby of the Fred G. Barrett Community Centre.  Fred G. Barrett was the founding President of the Gloucester Lions Club, and the hall within the Community Centre has been named “Gloucester Lions Hall.”

Our second Lions Bench will be located in Kemp Park (intersection of Bank and Conroy Road) and will be in memory of another original member and his wife Graham and Nancy Ritchie.

Our third Lions Bench will be located somewhere within Findlay Creek.
