President

President's Message:

It is indeed an honour to be serving my first term as President of the Metcalfe & District Lions Club. Chartered on 19 November, 1959 by a dedicated group of men including business owners, a doctor, civil servants, construction workers, agriculturalists and an educator, all of whom recognized that, by uniting their individual talents and strengths, a local service organization would be better able to raise funds for the benefit of area residents in need, as well as to sponsor various community events and projects. Our club was sponsored by Russell Lions Club, when it became part of the largest service club in the world, "The International Association of Lions Clubs".

 

Lions Clubs International's Mission Statement is, "To create and foster a spirit of understanding among all people for humanitarian needs by providing voluntary services through community involvement and international cooperation". For over fifty years, our club members have dedicated themselves to doing just that!  They have assisted in the construction and/or the renovation of an arena, a curling club, a medical centre, ball diamonds, fairgrounds, a community hall, a museum and playgrounds. They have provided funds for local hospital renovations and equipment as well as for the construction and renovations of a long-term care facility. They have provided funds for local youth sports teams, school bursaries and youth initiated humanitarian projects.  A great many individuals and families in need have also been helped by our club members. Our "Lions Den" has been made available as a community meeting place. At the District and International levels, our club members have provided funding for Lions' sponsored camps, sight conservation projects, natural disaster assistance, etc.  Over the years many of our club members have served on the District Council in various capacities, including three District Governors.  We have sponsored three other neighbouring clubs, Gloucester, Osgoode and Winchester and have assisted in the formation of several others.  The list goes on.......! 

 

Metcalfe & District Lions Club DOES live up to Lions International's motto, "We Serve".  Our motto is, "WE SERVE WITH PRIDE".
