Westport Lions Roar
By Lion Bob Reddick
Lion David Lowery, left, received his ten-year chevron, and Lions David Blair, centre, and Rick Warriner were honored for 30 years in Lionism.
Our first meeting of the month saw a full clubhouse of Lions. Ten members from the Seeley’s Bay Lions Club plus Lion Jean Lauziere from Russell attended.
Lion Jean is campaigning to be second vice governor in the upcoming elections at the district conference being held in April. He outlined his focus for the district, cited resources available to all members, and said that the District is there to work with clubs.
President Wayne Bent presented Milestone Chevron Awards to Lions David Lowery for ten years of service and to David Blair and Rick Warriner for 30 years in serving our community. They received a hardy congratulations for their outstanding commitment in making our community great.
Ponytailed Lion Al Stewart from Seeley’s Bay announced that he will get his hair cut at district convention to support the Zone 30S project in helping an eight year old girl with her battle with cancer. Al will gladly accept all donations for this worthy cause. Lion Al excitedly introduced 3/5ths of the winning curling team in the Gananoque Lions bonspiel. In addition to himself, Westport Lions Heather Huth and David Lowery made up the team.
It was suggested that the Westport Lions Club enter a team in the Elgin Lions Club trivia night, which has become very popular. The Seeley’s Bay members agreed that it is an entertaining and fun evening. The next trivia night will be on Friday, April 13th.
Don’t forget our annual mobility van breakfast at The Cove on Sunday, April 8th from 8:30 until 11:30 a.m. Admission is a good will offering. All proceeds go directly to help maintain this valuable service.
