Fairmont LIONS turn 20

BY Lion Lynda D.

   It was September 1999 that Norbert Schab, a Lion of 37 years and a new resident of Fairmont, gathered a group of 39 residents and formed a club at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort. On January 12, 2000, the Fairmont and District Lions Club recived its charter from Lions International under the guidance of Ray Wilder of the Canal Flats Lion Club.

   Initially, small projects were undertaken. Then, in 2003, the club took over the Hole in One Challenge under the auspices of the Riverside Golf Course, and started the highway clean up project and recycling. In 2004, they took on the Golf Fun Day at Coy's Par 3. For a few years, the Lions rejuvenated the Fairmont Cemetery., helped with the July 1st clebration and, for four years, held the Fairmont Fantastic 3 Marathon in conjunction with the Resort and other community mmembers. They started having garage sales and volunteering at Valley Appreciation Day in Invermere. Then someone had a dream of Fairmont having its own Lions Den. With a lot of hard work, loans and grants, this was accomplished June 25, 2013 and fully paid for by October 2015. Our Lions are responsible for the renovnations and addition of a large deck at the back of the building.

Garage sales and recycling proved to be very successful fundraisers, but were limited by space. Over the years, recycling had been done in donated garages and a retail space. The next plan was to build a multipurpose building, which was made psoiible through donations, strong membrs and the help of the Columbia Valley Community Foundation.

    September 2018 saw the development of the Wilder Memorial Park. With the help of the Fairmont Community Association, the Wilder Sports Park was completed this year (2019). Phase two (in progress) is the Memorial Gardens.

    What are the Lions up to these days? We have several annual events; the newest being the Hospice Tree of Lights and Christmas Friday Night Shopping, recycling now has 10 collection bins in our area and helps the environmnet. Our members' service enables us to give scholarships and more than 25 donations a year. Presently we have 31 members.

     Can you recognize some of the some founding members present in this photo?
