Westport Lions Roar
By Lion Bob Reddick
It was an honour to have the Elgin Lioness attend our May 8th general meeting. This group presented a cheque from the proceeds of a fundraiser featuring a tribute artist singing Elvis Presley and Roy Orbison songs.
The Westport Lions Club is proud of the fact that we were able to donate a total of $8,300 to 17 individuals or organizations in our spring donations.
Additional money was set aside in case we receive a request from a diabetic youth in our area that wishes to attend the Lions Camp Banting, which is located ten minutes north of Kanata.
Lion René Reynen outlined his plans in hosting a golf tournament on Friday, June 21st at the Evergreen Golf Course. This tournament is open to everyone; you can register either individually or in teams of four. The cost is $65 per person, which includes a cart, nine holes of golf and a buffet meal. The tournament will run from noon until about 4:30 p.m. Lots of prizes will be given out for the overall winners and for various competitions such as drive closest to the line, longest drive by both men and women, hole in one and closest to the pin. Registration form and further information will appear on the Westport Lions Facebook page and their website (westportlions.ca) in the near future.
Chairperson Rick Warriner handed out tickets to sell for our annual fish fry to be held on Saturday, June 22, 2019 at the Lions Sand Lake beach house. The fish will be provided by Mike Mundell from 5 to 7 p.m. with takeout available from 4 to 5 p.m. Tickets can be purchased from any Lion for $17 per ticket.
The Westport Lions Club is trying to stay with the times. Lions Bob Reddick and Heather Huth explained to the club how they sold tickets for our Spring Draw & $10,000 Draw by accepting an e-transfer and then sending a screen shot of the ticket stubs to the buyer.
Bob Reddick was happy to report that nine people responded to his request for help to clean the beach change rooms. The club is very appreciative of this positive response from the community. There will be a short organizational meeting at the beach house this Wednesday, May 15th at 7 p.m.
The metal recycling site at 245 Mountain Road will be open every Saturday from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. starting on May 18th. For more information please contact Lion Mike Robinson at 613-273-6812. The club asks that people do not leave items at the gate.
