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
