Westport Lions Roar
By Bob Reddick
This week continues to be busy for the Lion members. On Wednesday evening we have our annual Awards Night where we invite partners of our members and guests to help us celebrate our accomplishments and hard work. This celebration will feature individual milestones and awards; we cap the evening off with the presentation of the Lion of Year Award. On Thursday, we host a free barbecue for local seniors so they can enjoy each other’s company in our lovely beach setting. A contingent of Westport Lions will travel to Athens’ Farmersville Exhibition this Saturday to help the Athens club. This has been a long-standing tradition for our club to assist other clubs in their major fundraising endeavours.
The Club is committed to keeping the beach clean for the patrons’ enjoyment, and to prevent its closure due to high bacteria count. We know that many people use the beach from outside the immediate area so if we have the close the beach for any reason the status of the beach will be posted on the home page of our website: westportlions.ca.
