Who Are The University-Ballard Lions?

The University-Ballard Lions Club is one of the largest and oldest service clubs in the region. The Club was chartered in 1924 and has been a force in north Seattle since. Members include business and professional men and women, retirees, clergy and educators. The motto of Lions Clubs International is “We Serve.” The University Lions Club strives to live up to that motto every day.

Where Do the University-Ballard Lions Meet?

The regular meetings of the University-Ballard Lions Club involve the comaraderie of Lions, sharing “moments of happiness,” having announcements, and then hearing a presentation by an invited speaker.  From one meeting to the next the speakers’ address current issues that vary from community programs, sports, business, science, the arts, history, travel, etc. Our meetings allow Lions and Guests to “wrestle with a variety of important issues of our day.”

On the 1st Wednesday of each month we have an informal reception at 6:00 followed by a dinner meeting at 6:30 p.m. at the 125th Street Grill located at 12255 Aurora Avenue North in Seattle, Washington 98133. The evening meeting allows employed members who find it difficult to come to a luncheon meeting at noon to enjoy an evening meeting with their fellow Lions.

On the 3rd Wednesday of each month, the University Lions meet at the 125th Street Grill  for a noon luncheon meeting.
