What is better than the word FREE? Well, it’s even better when the word skate comes after it.
The Capreol Lions Club sponsored a Free Skate on Family day at the Capreol Arena.
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.
Lion Norm was taste testing the free hot chocolate to make sure its just right. The remainder of Lions volunteers includes new Lion, Jocelyn, Lion Julie, Lion Dorthy and Lion Rick.
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 $250 cheque presented to the Food Bank is the first of a quarterly donation of $250 from the Capreol Lions to the Foodbank as Lions recognize the important service the Food Bank provides in the community
The Diamond Centennial pin is awarded to a Lion who sponsored a new member during the 100th anniversary of Lions International and that member has remained active for three straight years.
Capreol is committed to enhancing the quality of life in their community and the community has responded by attending their fundraising Bingos, BBQs and other events. Community Pride….ROAR!
Capreol Lions Club’s Winterfest invites families to join them for their inaugural Winterfest, for children 3 and up who are looking for a Roaring good time during the Family Day Weekend. Outdoor and indoor events are planned and are free. The Club will be selling hot dogs, cocoa, pop, popcorn. There will be prizes for the kids. Everyone is invited to come on out with your ”cubs” and play.
Congratulations go out to the Capreol Lions Club for being able to award three Centennial Pins to deserving members. President Dan had a busy night during the New Year Lions meeting, awarding three Centennial pins to members, Lion Robin-gold, Lion Mario-gold, Lion Dorothy -silver
In 2017, Lions International celebrated the 100th anniversary of Lions serving their communities.
Centennial pins are being awarded to Lions who have sponsored a new member during the Centennial and those new members have continued to be active members of the Club. The gold pin means the member sponsored has been active for 2 years while the silver pin is for the member for having been active for a year.
Bringing in new members is vital to a healthy Club and we hope to see some more people from the Capreol hopes to see even more new members from the Community join.
