Governor’s Project 2018-2019

This year, the District Governor’s Project will be in support of medical equipment necessary in the treatment of pediatric cancer. Every year, an average of 880 children in Ontario under the age of 15 will be diagnosed with cancer and 1200 people will be diagnosed in District A5.   The North Bay Regional Health Centre has named the ophthalmology clinic, The Lions Ophthalmology Clinic as we have played a significant role in raising money for the purchase of equipment that includes the Terry McKerrow CAT Scan.  Lions are known as leaders in the community who pick up the pieces to finish the task when others are not able.  I ask all Lions, Lioness’, and Leo’s of District A5 to please help and support this project to fund the much-needed medical equipment the hospital needs in diagnosing and treating cancer in children, so their treatments can be done closer to home.

The first Cabinet meeting of the 2018/2019 season we were honoured to have 11 Lion PDG’s present, representing a combined 272 years of experience.   Lions seated: Kim Groen, Ellen Fletcher, Myra Kiernan, Grace Kingsnorth. Standing: Brian Closs, Gerry Bertrand, Harold Huhtanen, Steven Olsen, Armand Jean, Andrew McRae, Bob Kingsnorth.
