Eye Glasses

The Lions have boxes to collect eyeglasses for forwarding to those in need in developing countries. The boxes are at the Lions Den in Fairmont, Family Groceries in Canal Flats, and The Gas Plus in Fairmont.
The province of B.C. has the highest number of eye glass donations of all the Canadian provinces. In 2008 over 16,000 pairs were sent to eye clinics in the developing world.

Wilder Memorial Park

Wilder Memorial Park in Fairmont Hot Springs BC is a story of a park in the making. The 2-acre parcel of green land is located at the southwest end of Wills Road and is zoned for recreational use.

When completed the park will be a lasting memorial to the well-known Wilder Family who owned and developed much of the land in and around the Fairmont community, including the Fairmont Hot Springs Resort.

The Wilder Family and Fairmont Hot Springs Resort have generously donated the property to the Fairmont & District Lions Club. The club’s mandate is to be of service to the community through projects that benefit its residents. Because of that, they are a perfect choice to spearhead this project.

With that goal in mind, the club is exploring options for the development of the property and is seeking the input of local residents so that the resulting community park will reflect the needs of the community.

The Lions Club has several projects on the go.

Memorial Garden Tree Planting

In the southwest part of the park is a memorial garden to remember those we've lost. Anyone can purchase a tree in memory of a loved one.
