Administrative history

The West Vancouver Lions Club was chartered in May 1940. The Club held many shows and events over the years such as the Minstrel Shows and annual Gymkhanas. During WWII, they built bleachers at Ambleside Park for spectators. The Club also organized a Narvaez Pageant to commemorate the anniversary of the first caucasian man to set foot in West Vancouver in 1791, and built a monument for the event at the entrance to Ambleside Park. The Lions were also involved in the annual May Day Parade, and organized an annual Easter Egg Hunt at John Lawson Park.

For a period of time, the West Vancouver Lions Club bought the Hollyburn Pavillion and operated it. Eventually it was sold to the Federal Government and became the site of the post office.
