On Tuesday, November 25 at 7 p.m. the Club will hold an evening of fellowship and important announcements on vital community projects.

We will be celebrating the work of the Ottawa Hospital Eye Institute and the Ruddy-Shenkman Hospice – and presenting each with a substantial cheque which we have accumulated from our fund-raising projects.

That’s what Lionism is all about. We work hard on tangible events and we donate the proceeds back to meet the community’s greatest needs.

Dr. Baig, a very talented surgeon/researcher at the Eye Institue and Rabbi Reuvin Bulka, radio host and ardent support of the Hospice, are expected to attend the event. they will offer a few words about their organizations and will accept the Lions’ donations.

The evening will feature wine and cheese and much friendly mingling. Lions have been asked to invite neighbours who might be interested in learning more about Lions efforts and maybe joining us.

we plan to make our donations night an annual event. help us kick off the series, and enjoy some refreshments and fellowship.

New Executive looks forward to a busy, exciting year

On June 10 our new Officers were installed. This will be a year of challenges and benefits to the community. In September we will begin work on the major project(s) that our committee is about to recommend to our next regular meeting.

The Club has decided to shift into high gear in helping the Ottawa and Kanata communities with our labour and our fund-raising proceeds. We have been in touch with several worthy causes and with our neighbours to establish a great plan. September will be the starting point of the roll-out.

New President, Peter Henry, believes that the year will feature challenges but that we will get it done.
