Belwood Lions complete their pledge to Groves Hospital One Year Ahead of Plan
Belwood Lions are very pleased to advise that due to the success of this years Pike Derby; the tremendous support from our sponsors and anglers, and other Belwood Lions fundraisers, that we were able to complete our 2 year pledge to Groves Hospital of $10,000 for a vital signs monitor for the endoscopy department. Belwood Lions had pledged $10,000 over two years, but today donated the second $5000 (the initial $5000 donation made during our Pike Derby award ceremony) to Groves Hospital Foundation representative Lori Arsenault. This fulfills our pledge 1 year ahead of plan. Presenting the cheque for Belwood Lions is Sam Stewart and Ron Prior. Belwood Lions will continue to work with Groves to select future areas for supporting the great work Groves does to benefit our entire community. We look forward to future support from anglers, sponsors and the community the next Pike Derby May 27 & 27 2023
Belwood Lions completes the Centennial Parkette
Belwood Lions have created a Centenial parkette facing Belwood Lake behind Belwood Hall. Constructed by the late Lion Elwin May and Belwood Lions, the area contains memorial benches to Lions Passed. It serves as a place of peace and contemplation for the surrounding community. Plaques recognize the project as the One Hundred Centenary of Lions in Canada, as well as of Elwin’s work in fabricating the many other memorial benches in Belwood park and along the Elora Cataract Trail and surrounding villages.

As always, we had a lot of laughs and some great outdoor time together. Thanks to all the generous sponsors, to the amazing Belwood Lions team that work so hard to pull this together and of course to you the anglers that so generously support the entire event and freely contribute to all the creative ways we find to help you generate contributions to such great causes. As announced, we continue our ongoing donation of $5000 annually to Groves Hospital, this time pledging $10,000 over two years for a Vital Signs Monitor for the Endoscopy dept.

That is of course not to take away from the achievement of these students in being recognized in their school competition.
