Kirkland Lake Lions Club Arts & Cultural Fair Event

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kirkland Lake Lions joined forces with the KL Community Arts Committee, KL Museum of Northern History and KL Multicultural Group, to host our first year Arts & Cultural Fair, which was a huge success.
Thankful to local sponsors for their support which allowed free gate entry for the community to enjoy the main show, The Resilience Tour. Featuring local and international musicians, dancers and artists.
We were joined by our local classic car club, Road Legend Cruisers, as well as many local musicians that blessed us by performing half hour shows for the afternoon. Free inflatables were available, after the main show, for the families to enjoy while listening to the stage shows. Amazing day.
One special attraction was the Dunk Tank, our Lion Jim Malherbe was eager to sit on the hot seat and was a great sport for volunteering to be dunked.

Manning our Sweet Treats tent where we featured Lions Tails (our version of a beaver tail but WAY BETTER, lol), cotton candy and homemade butter tarts! Of course, the sweets are always a huge hit! Also the perfect opportunity to market our Cotton Candy cart that we have available to rent in our community.

Kirkland Lake Lions Branch Fundraiser

September 18, 2021 saw the Kirkland Lake Lions Branch join with the Road Legend Cruisers for a fun day at CJ’s Drive In, where everyone was asked to bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the Kirkland Lake Food Bank. They were able to fill the back of a truck and also received $463 in cash donations. There were 47 vehicles registered and was greatly attended by the public. Great Job!!!

 

Kirkland Lake’s 1st Fundraiser

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.

The Kirkland Lake Lions recently attended the Kirkland Lake Volunteer Fair. DG Lion Vern attended the meeting in Kirkland Lake and decided to help at the volunteer table for Lions.

Our newest club, the Kirkland Lake Lions are off to a roaring start, helping out the Foodland grocery store clean up following a roof fire earlier this year which caused major smoke and water damage. Before opening, the store needed to be cleaned top to bottom.
The Lions stepped up to help in the store cleaning so that it could be reopened on time. Cleaning shelves are Lions Jennifer Rodgers, Karen Suykens and Jeanne Cloutier. Lion Milne Renne and Lion Karen posed for a picture in front of the Lions information table.
As a thank you for all the help, Foodland allowed the Lions to have a food drive to help the local foodbank. The Lions filled over 5 shopping carts to donate their local community.

Thanks to all of the Lions for helping their community stay strong. A big Lions Roar.
