A Club tradition started many years ago has the Immediate Past Club President “humbled” before the Club membership and his or her spouse with a hearty and lively “Roast” that pokes fun at the Immediate Past President (IPP) and his or her year as President of the Oak Cliff Lions Club.  It is a day not to be missed at the Club as the laughter can be heard throughout Oak Cliff.   Originally, the IPP was traditionally “greeted” sometime during the “Roast” with a pie in the face. 

The “Roast” stopped for unknown reasons in 1980, but was resumed in 2001, and now serves as a fund raiser for the Club.  Pies, for "Immersion" of the Past President are now auctioned with the proceeds aiding Club projects. The "Roast" actually serves as a final "Salute" to the Immediate Past President for his or her service to the Oak Cliff Lions Club.  

By official action of the Board of Directors, the Annual Immediate Past President’s “Roast” is now held on the first Wednesday of January each year
