Lions looking for lift from a few good volunteers

Your local chapter of the Lions is looking for volunteers to step up and donate what time they can.

Dear editor,

Your local chapter of the Lions consist of a small group of dedicated women and men who donate their time to assist those on the North Island. Last year, because of these dedicated individuals’ efforts, close to $24,000 in direct donations were provided to a variety of North Island people.

The list of North Island residents assisted includes the young and disadvantaged, the elderly and the disabled.

Besides the care and operation of your local Civic Centre, the donations mentioned above provided medical travel for some Port Hardy elders, playground equipment, scholarships, camp funds and local special events sponsorship.

These, among many other things, are a direct result of the Lions’ and Lioness’ efforts.

Unfortunately, this chapter of the Lions, like many others, is losing ground as membership dwindles. As a result, we are always looking for more people to come and give whatever time they can to help to continue these positive things.

Our Lions model is: family first, work second, and whatever you may have left and willing to give we are more than happy to accept.

We want to thank all of you who have participated in a Lions function, as without your support these things would never have been accomplished. If you are at all curious and want more information on what we do or how you can be a part of this, please feel free to contact us at 250-949-8883.
