In 1944, Agincourt was a small farming town, north and east of the city of Toronto. In November of that year, a group of public spirited people, mostly farmers and store-keepers, got together to form a Lions Club to serve their community.
Times have changed and now, 65 years later, Toronto has grown to the point where Agincourt is part of the city, but the Lions Club of Agincourt continues to perform its service work.
Our present membership consists of more than 30 men and women, from many walks of life and cultural backgrounds, and with ages from the mid-30's to the late-80's!
We're strong on tradition, but always ready to adopt new and better ways of doing things.
65 YEARS AND GOING STRONG
November 19th 2009 was the 65th Club Charter Anniversary Dinner. (L-R) PDG Lion Wayne Hoey and District Governor Mark Gunby along with Lion President Gord Blades, PDG Lion Brian Linton and PDG Lionel Purcell took part in the cutting of the 65th cake. The night was a hit with current members, past members and distinguished guest in attendance for good food and good cheer. Special thanks to Lion Patti Kennedy, Lion Nairn Robertson and Lion Chub Herbert for your hard thought planning to make this evening a success.
MONEY WELL SPENT
On November 12, 2009 The Lions Club of Agincourt was invited to the Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides Graduation Night. The 9 members that attended had the great pleasure of meeting Michelle and Legend. Legend is the dog that had been put through the extensive training program to become a SPECIAL SKILLS DOG. Michelle and Legend were introduced 3 weeks ago and the both of them were a perfect match. Legend will assist Michelle in her every day needs - this is more then just a working relationship - it is a new found friendship. We would like to thank everyone that participated in the 1st Annual Don Hardinge Memorial Golf tournament. THIS IS WHERE YOUR MONEY WENT. As a side note, Michelle and Legend have agreed to be in attendance for the 2nd Annual tournament to be held on May 15th 2010. We look forward to seeing everyone back along with any new golfers.
MICHELLE AND LEGEND
Now Michelle has two LEGENDS in her life. Michelle's scooter is branded "Legend" and now her dog is "Legend"
