The Lions Club of Portarlington Inc was chartered on 7 December 1970 under the sponsorship of the Lions Club of Corio. As more members were sourced from Drysdale, the name was changed some time later to ‘Portarlington/Drysdale’.

The Club has its own ‘Den’ situated in the grounds of Portarlington Lions Village(see Link) and meets on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month.

Lion Alan Vallance is the Club’s sole surviving Charter member, while the Club has produced two District Governors – the late Lion Adrian Mannix OAM and Lion Trevor Hirth.

Over the years, the Club has been involved in many and varied projects (see Projects)  but two stand out: establishment of the Lions Village and our famous Crayfish Spins that have been a hit with locals and holiday makers since 1973.

Join us in making our communities and the world better places to live.
