Agassiz-Harrison Lions mark 100 years of service

In honour of 100 years of Lionism, the Agassiz-Harrison Lions proudly donated $5,000 to the Kent Elementary School PAC.

In honour of 100 years of Lionism and over 50 years of service to the local community, the Agassiz-Harrison Lions proudly donated $5,000 to the Kent Elementary School PAC to help purchase a sway-swing as part of the playground enhancements at the school.

The swing will allow handicapped and special needs children to enjoy recess activities they cannot access on regular playground equipment.

The swing is a unique combination of play and therapy in a single unit.

The funds raised in Agassiz through the Super-Valu and Red Apple draws, among others, have helped make this donation possible.

As often as possible, the money the local Lions raise stays within the area. Among the many projects receiving Lions help are the Harrison Highlanders Pipe Band, the Agassiz Museum, the HELP anti-bullying project, and the local Scouts.

The donation confirms the Lions Clubs mandate to provide and support meaningful service projects throughout the world.

As part of  the largest global service club organization, the Agassiz-Harrison Club not only helps our immediate area, but also the wider international community through donations to support  the guide dog program and the international measles vaccination program run by Lions International.
