History / Biography
After much debate, the Town of Arnprior decided to support the efforts of a local committee to twin with a community in the USA and the USSR. The goal of the project was to exchange knowledge about the interests and concerns of a similar community in each country. "It is our sincere hope that small steps such as ours towards international, social and cultural exchange will help in the universal goal of peach" wrote Mayor Tom Sullivan. The intiative was also endorsed by the councils of McNab, Pakenham and Braeside. A musical theatre production 'Peace Child', directed by Lawrence Mahusky was funded through a Challenge '86 Summer Employment Grant and donations from various organizations. A newsletter "The Twinning Times" was published by the committee to provide information about the Arnprior Twinning Project and profiled the towns of Canton USA and Kamenec-Podolski USSR. A hockey match between the Arnprior Bantam Packers and a team from Canton took place in March 1986.

History / Biography
The Arnprior Women’s Institute is a branch within Renfrew South District. Their first meeting was in the Council Chambers on January 8, 1932; 12 members were present and paid a fee of 25 cents. Over the years Arnprior Women's Institute has supported such causes as St. John Ambulance, Canadian National Institute for the Blind, Victorian Order of Nurses, Arnprior Fair, Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital, Arnprior’s Grove, refugees, and donations to fire victims. The branch amalgamated in April 2002 with Stewartville to become the Arnprior-Stewartville Branch. That branch then disbanded in 2008, with remaining members joining the White Lake Branch.

The location of the fair moved around the township over the years. In the early 1900's it moved to its present location which was located in the village of Stewarton. Stewarton was annexed by the Town of Arnprior after WWII. Past Presidents (to 2003) include: John Findlay Sr., Ewart Styles, Frank Boese, Andrew McNab, Wilfred O'Donnell, Ira Smith, James Herrick, Ken Hogan Harvey Young, Duncan Dewar, William Melanson, Milton Symington, Ewart Miller, Elmer Fraser, J.M. MacMillan, Dave Schlievert, Ken Potter, Earl Sadler, Disk Straathof, Louis Laventure, Anne Carmicheal, Brian Majaury, Don Thoms, Jeff Desarmia, Lesa Campbell and Jeffrey Desarmia. In 2013, the Executive includes President Jeffrey Desarmia, 1st Vice President Jeff Schlievert, Treasurer Cathy Wilson, Secretary Diane Swaine. Directors Scott Brum, Tammy Jones, Brian Majaury, Scott Rancourt, Monica Schnob, Martin Straathof, Murray Swain. The annual summer fair operates through the volunteer efforts of the Arnprior Agricultural Society. Today, fairs start on Thursday night and run through Sunday in August. A demolition derby and live entertainment are major attraction along with the midway rides and games of chance. The agricultural roots of the fair are seen in the displays of arts and crafts, horse pulls and showing of livestock by local 4H clubs. In different years, the society brought in petting zoos, magicians and frog jumping competition in an attempt to offer something for the younger children.Throughout the years the Agricultural Society entered into an agreement with the local Lions Club to take care of the gate.

History / Biography
The organizational meeting to form the Lions Club of Arnprior took place June 17 1946 in the Town Hall with five members from the Ottawa Vanier Lions Club present to provide support. The Lions slogan at the time was "Liberty, Intelligence, Our Nations Safety". The Club also had a Lion Code of Ethics and carried the motto "We Serve". On September 9th, 1946 the Arnprior Lions Club received its charter. Original Charter Members were: E. J. Annis, Harold Armsden, Douglas F. Ashley, Arnold Bedore, B. V. Bedore, Clifford Bedore, Max Bedore, D. H. Brown, Don H. Butler, C. W. Camp, A.D.F. Campbell, A. S. Campbell, N. A. Campbell, Charles Coe, Barclay C. Craig, W. B. Craig, H. C. Gardiner, J. C. Irvine, Thomas Johnston, Fred Lampole, W. E. Levan, Oswald Lewis, P. M. Locke, L. W. MacDonald, Melville McConeghy, Ralph Miller, Wilheam Moe, Martin Oeslner, Raymond Osborne, J. W. Reavely, Frank Smith, Malcolm Smith, W. N. Thomson, W. J. Thompson, W. A. Zalter. It was decided at the first meeting that Regular and Board of Directors meetings would take place once a month with membership limited to 75 and the membership fee was set at $5.00 fee per year. Meetings were held in various locations including the Arnprior Rink, the Curling Rink, the Oddfellows Hall, the Madawaska Hotel, the Catholic Women's League Hall, the Arnprior Golf Club, the Town Park, the Legion Hall, the Town Hall and at members' homes. Finally, in late 1976, the Lions Club purchased their own building at 77 Madawaska Street to hold meetings and various events. Starting in the summer of 1947, Bingo became a very successful fund raiser for the Club. The Club was also involved with running the Santa Claus parade and Arnprior Fair. Donations were made to the local hospital, the Victoria Order of Nurses as well as the fight against Tuberculosis. In 1948, the club built a bathing house beside the wharf at the Town park. Other activities in the early years included establishing Caruso Street Children's Park and providing street signs for the Town. Throughout the years, the Lions Club of Arnprior held hundreds of fund raising activities to provide money for worthy causes both locally and internationally. The club assisted the Grove Nursing Home, held a very popular regatta, ran the Salute to the Valley festival and assisted numerous sports clubs. The Lion's Club also offered occassional assistance to cover expenses for heating oil, eyeglasses, wheelchairs, hearing aids etc. They also ran a Christmas Cheer program providing welfare recipients with special food baskets. In the mid 1970's the Club sponsored the purchase of an ice resurfacing machine for the Civic Centre. Arnprior Lionettes started activities in 1971 and a Leo Club was formed in 1983. The 35th Anniversary of the Arnprior Lions Club was celebrated on Friday March 5 1982 with a Charter Night Dinner and Dance with Guest Speaker Bruce Murray, International Director. In 2005, the club merged with the Arnprior McNab Lions Club which had formed in 1989. For a complete history of the Lions Club of Arnprior please consult the file "History of Arnprior Lions Club 1946 - 2006 The Making of A Diamond in the Rough" written as a series of articles published in the Arnprior Chronicle-Guide, by Art Smith.
Acquisition Source
A small amount of material was donated by Mrs. Kay Rogers in 2005. Her husband Gerry Rogers was involved with the Arnprior Lions Club. In 2008 Roger Larabie donated the rest of the material on behalf of the club.
Scope and Content
The two boxes of records belonging to the Arnprior Lions Club are arranged in chronological order. Most files contain gaps in the record such as the Minutes of 1986. In addition to the textual documents, a large scrap book, original 1946 charter document and president's plaque form part of the fonds. The scrap book was compiled by Lion Norman Kinkaid to record the activities of the Arnprior Lions Club, the Leo and Lionettes of District A4 including the area of Arnprior, Renfrew, Calabogie, and Douglas. It should be consulted for information about particular events. Researchers should also consult the Minutes and Membership & Activities Reports for a complete account of the Arnprior Lions Club contributions to the community between 1946 and 1996.
