Lions Club of Bracebridge members spent time over the holidays preparing and serving food for a wonderful community Christmas Day meal, hosted by Gagnon’s Your Independent Grocer and the Lions. This is the 3rd year the club has been involved in this wonderful event. We served 225 dinners, delivered 61 and had 40 take outs for a total of 326 meals. Close to 110 hrs of time was donated by the Lions for prep, hosting and serving and 49 other community minded folks came out to help on Christmas Day. A special thank you to Lions Daniel Soucy and Art Meredith, and their Partners in Service Leslie and Janette.
We carry on this spirit all winter long serving meals for the Out of the Cold program every Wed evening. We begin in November and end in April and in that time serve over 1200 three course meals.
