History / Biography
Arnprior was first settled by Europeans in 1825 when Archibald McNab brought 80 settlers from Scotland to the township he named after himself. In 1862, Arnprior was incorporated as a village and in 1892, it was incorporated as a town. The population grew as Arnprior provided employment through its various industries, most notably the McLachlin Mills, the Kenwood Mills, the Canadian Public Booth Co., M. Sullivan and Son, Pfizer and Scheel Windows to name only a few. Over the years, Arnprior has grown into a thriving community providing its residents with a wide range of social and public services.

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.

Knights of Columbus Council 2082
Physical Description

History / Biography
In 1882 in New Haven Connecticut a young priest Rev. Michael McGivney conceived the idea of a catholic fraternal society composed of catholic men. The basic principles of the Knights of Columbus are charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism. On 13 January 1920 Supreme Knight James A. Flaherty and Supreme Secretary Michael J. McGinley signed the official charter instituting Council 2082 of the Arnprior Knights of Columbus. The council at that time had 56 members. The Arnprior Council 2082 has always closely worked with the Saint John Chrysostom Parish and Church, also located in Arnprior. Its members are active participants in the parish and the council has been prominent in its support of church and community affairs, providing monetary and man power assistance. Council 2082 hold monthly meetings to conduct the various activities of the council, and these are attended by any member of the Knights of Columbus. The minutes of these meeting were the responsibility of the recorder and were maintained by the council. Council Bulletins were also produced outline executive reports, upcoming council activities, and names of the officers and committee members; these bulletins were mailed out to all the members of the council. Council 2082 have used the Parish Hall, located next to Saint John Chrysostom Church on Albert Street, since 1959 for hosting a number of activities, events and meetings each year. Prior to this date, they held meetings at various places across town, including rented halls situated over the William Laderoute Barber Shop, the upper floor of the Galvin Block, and the Beamish Block which was destroyed by fire. After the fire, the Knights of Columbus held their meetings in St Joseph’s School auditorium until the new Parish Hall was completed.
Custodial History
The meeting and bulletin records were originally stored in the upper room of the St. John Chrysostom parish hall, a space used by the Knights of Columbus Arnprior Council 2082 since at least 1959, the year they began to use this space. They were on occasion borrowed by members of Council 2082 to review past meeting notes. On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the council, Wayne Pickering (Past Grand Knight & District Deputy) borrowed all of the existing records to write a book of the history of the council. Unfortunately the years from 1964–1990 were missing. An extensive search was conducted with no results. A suggestion/request was made by Rod McCallum to have the council donate their records to the Arnprior & McNab/Braeside Archives to ensure that the remaining records be safely preserved for future historical reference. The Officers of the Knights of Columbus Council 2082 approved the donation of their records to the Arnprior & McNab/Braeside Archives, and a transfer was made of the meeting minutes from 1920-1963 and 1991–2001 as well as bulletins from 1982–2000. Additional materials still in the Parish Hall were photographed and listed, and are held digitally for use of reference by researchers.

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.
