Lions Playground

Many years ago, the Stony Plain Lions Club invested in playground equipment for a hidden park in Stony Plain. Lion Herb Reinhart recalls members, lining up with their lawnmowers, and going round & round until the grass was mowed in the park. Today the Town does the mowing, however, the Lions purchased new playground equipment worth Approx. $50,000.00. We hope the children enjoy many more years on the new equipment.

Help us save 157 million children this year. Be a part of the solution through the One Shot, One Life: Lions Measles Initiative by supporting LCIF through the Gates Foundation Challenge Grant. For every $2 raised by Lions, the Gates Foundation will donate US$1. Together, LCIF and the Gates Foundation will provide a total of US$15 million to fight measles this year.
