Minnow Lake 2020

 

Minnow Lake is a hardworking Lions Club and community partners benefit from those efforts. 2020 was a difficult year, yet Minnow Lake Lions were able to support the Salvation Army in the Christmas appeal by providing Lions to man the Kettles.

 

New Liskeard Lions Club 2020

I’m sure when a person begins volunteering with a community organization, the last thing on their mind would be celebrating that milestone 65 years later. Such is the case of Lion Ron Sutton of the New Liskeard Lions Club. The Lions club celebrated with six of their members on the longevity of their service to the community.

Ron Sutton – 65 years, Gordon Spencer – 50 years, Keith Windsor – 45 years, Archie Brazeau – 40 years, Rory Moore – 20 years and Ron Prestage – 20 years.

That’s an incredible 240 years of service and that’s just from these few who are celebrating milestones. The impact of service in a community can’t be unvalued.

Thanks to all of these incredible individuals and all of the club members who ensure that ‘where there’s a need, there’s a Lion’.

Lions Clubs Support Bursaries

Every year, Lions Clubs provide bursaries for students intent on furthering their education. This year, in excess of $28,000 has been made available to institutions of higher education and/or students to pursue that goal. These donations assist in easing the expenses incurred by students during their pursuit of dreams. Bursaries link; http://lionsdistricta5.ca/bursaries-supported-by-district-a5-clubs/

Sudbury Teachers Lions Support Local School

October 2020

The Sudbury Teachers Lions Club (TLC) lived up to their moniker this past fall when they ensured students at a local school who were in need of Boots and Shoes, received them.

TLC members shopped for the items and delivered them to the school, providing 20 pairs of shoes and 8 pairs of boots for a warmer winter.

Tim Hortons has always been a great supporter of children’s charities and the Lion Clubs.  This year, they again partnered with the Elliot Lake Lions Club to decorate and sell “Smile Cookies” at their local Tim’s.  Together they raised $5,086.00 to go towards the CTV Lions Children’s Christmas Telethon.  Once again, this small community has done a ‘Roaring’ Job supporting this campaign to help the Lions provide kids with Christmas gifts.
