Bracebridge Lions were out in full force on Sunday May 28th giving back to the community! In support of the Annual Annie Williams Picnic in the Park and the YWCA “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes”, our club purchased, BBQ’d and served over 570 free Hot Dogs for attendees. We worked with the Rotary Club of Bracebridge, the Rotary Club of Bracebridge-Muskoka Lakes, Town of Bracebridge and the YWCA to organize this free event. Members also helped direct traffic and parking and donated drinks, balloons and equipment! There was entertainment, activities, cake and ice cream, water, Paddle Club demonstrations, Fire Trucks, EMS, and the Lakeland Lift Truck. Well done team!
On Thursday May 25th we were pleased to have as our guests Robert and his Dog Guide Sam, as we did a formal presentation with Benefactor Brock Napier for his generous donation through the club for his Dog Guide. Brock’s donation has make a huge difference in Robert’s life and he has pledged to continue helping others in Muskoka who are in need of a Dog Guide to improve their lives. On behalf of the club, Thank you Brock!
Bracebridge Lions Mike Guiry and Jodee Tonge (also representing the District of Muskoka) had the pleasure of attending an awards ceremony yesterday. The Elderberries choir of Gravenhurst voted to donate $1,000.00 of their hard earned funds to the Financial Assistance Partner’s Group (of which our club is a representative), along with 2 other community minded groups. The Elderberries invited them to attend one of their rehearsals and turned it into a small awards ceremony. T…hey had a photographer there to take a few pictures of the choir and then they invited each award winner to come up and accept their award. The FAPG is very grateful that the choir thought of this “team” to be worthy of receiving this money. This is especially so at this time as the FAPG funds are running low and will soon need to be topped up. FAPG funds are managed by the Muskoka Service Clubs and the District of Muskoka and given back to needy people in Muskoka.
