A great time was had by all – kids and parents alike. To make the day even better, the Lions provided free hot chocolate to all of those who came out to skate or attempt to skate as the case may be. This is an annual event and much appreciated by the community.
The Capreol Lions are proud to announce the donation of $500 to the Capreol Irish Royal Canadian Army Cadet. The Cadets offer an excellent mentoring program where Cadets learn skills, within a structured atmosphere with training that also builds self-esteem. The Capreol Lions are very happy to have built a new partnership with the local Cadet Corp who have already helped out at one event. Lion Robin addressed those in attendance and thanked the Royal Canadian Military Officers for their service to the Country. He also congratulated the Cadets on their commitment to the Cadet Corps. Lion Robin presented the cheque from the Capreol Lions to Donna Landry treasurer for the Cadets.
The fundraiser was a raffle of three different prizes donated from local merchants in town. Every gift was donated as was the printing of the tickets due to it being the Kirkland Lake Lions first venture.
In the photo selling tickets from right to left is President, Lion Milne Rennie, member, Lion Jeanne Cloutier and Secretary, Lion Karen Suykens.
