On behalf of Principal Linda Rochetta-Legacy, Vice Principal Allison Vance, St. Paul Catholic School, is presented a Lions Quest Canada School Certificate by Sault Ste. Marie Lions members: Past President Jim Russell and District A-5 Second Vice Governor David Kidd.
Lions Quest Canada is a PreK to Grade 12 Educational Program specifically designed for educators and focuses upon the healthy social-emotional development of our youth. This year the District A-5 Lions Organization provided over $19,000 worth of Lions Club International Foundation funding for approximately 50 educators to receive Lions Quest Canada SEL training and educational resources. The Sault Ste. Marie Lions Club has been very active in helping to roll out this District A-5 Grant opportunity to educators within the city and area.
Special congratulations to St. Paul Catholic School as 23 of its staff chose to participate in this special training, receiving over $8,000 worth of Lions funding to do so. Way to go, St. Paul Catholic School! Way to go, Sault Ste. Marie Lions Club!
The Sault Ste. Marie Lions Club held a Trunk and Treasures community Event in the parking lot of the Moose Lodge. Lions baked goods, organized, donated and sold items at the event. In addition, members of the general public also set up their trunks at the unique community yard sale. It was a wonderful day and the Lions enjoyed being with one another. All of the monies raised will go back to the community. What a great way for the Lions to get back out in the community and make their presence known after a long co-vid isolation.
