Lion President Gail Neiman Presiding at Opening Meeting of 35th Anniversary Year! 

                                              September 10, 2019

 

The President's Message:                  

I am honoured and humbled to have been given the opportunity to serve as President of the Fowlers Corners & District Lions club.

I am also grateful to all of my predecessors for the guidance, confidence and leadership skills that they imparted to me prior to my taking this position.

While I officially became a member of this Club in October of 2009, I had already worked in the club since its Charter in July 1985.

I have held various offices within the club and over the years have always been given support and guidance as required.

I see my club constantly becoming more sophisticated as it moves forward with bigger and better ventures each year.

Our club members are dedicated people who share a passion for both community service and friendship.

Becoming a "Lion" connects each member to a diverse group of people who earnestly want to "Serve" the local and world community. 

I am proud of the fact that we have both assisted and supported many local projects such as the Peterborough Regional Health Foundation,

and our "Sight First" project.

With continued work, I am confident that the Fowlers Corners & District Lions Club will always be a vital organization

in this community.

Dear Lions and friends, let us always reflect on our shared responsibilities to both our local communities and the world at large. 

"We Serve”!

Sincerely,

Gail Neiman, President

A Brief History of the Fowlers Corners and District Lions Club    - by Lion Bernie Baudisch                                                                     

(Note: While the Club was chartered on June 1, 1985, the oficial Charter document from LCI was issued on January 11, 1985.)  

Positions:

Charter President: George Coene, Charter Secretary: Bill Bryer, Charter Treasurer: Bill Jacklin and 26 Charter Members. 

                                                                    ______________________________________________

Our Sponsoring Club was the Omemee Lions Club and our Guiding Lion was Lion Aldon Bailey.

The District Governor was Lion Peter Jackson.

 

Many people cringe when they hear the tired old cliché, “It seems like it was only yesterday...” but to some it does really seem like only yesterday since the

Fowlers Corners and District Lions Club received its charter on June 1st, 1985. 

I guess we must have been having a lot of fun to make the time pass so quickly, for here we are entering our 35th year. 

Many of us are a bit greyer, a bit paunchier and maybe even a little bit wiser. 

Thirty-five years ago, three or four men got together and thought the Fowlers Corners area could use a Lions club. 

They found a few like-minded individuals with a sense of civic duty and a willingness to serve.  The second fortunate event that occurred was the sponsorship

by the Omemee Lions Club and the immeasurable contribution by our Guiding Lion, the late Lion Aldon Bailey.  On the Charter Night there were twenty-six men

who were ready to take the Lions’ oath and accept the motto “WE SERVE”. Today, our membership stands at thirty-seven Lions!

As early examples of our work, we supported The Emily-Omemee, the Millbrook, the Ennismore and the Bridgenorth Volunteer Fire Departments who were in need of

new equipment consisting of trucks, emergency rescue vans, rescue equipment and a marine rescue unit.  With our support and the support of other service

organizations we were able to satisfy those needs.  The Volunteer Fire Fighting Training Centre near Norwood asked for and received our support.  The renovation

of the Public Library in Bridgenorth was partially funded by us. Local schools, minor hockey, baseball and soccer leagues, figure skating clubs, 4-H Clubs,

Youth Groups, Scouts and Girl Guides received our assistance.  We even had the privilege of sending a local girl to compete in the 1988 Special Olympics in

Seoul, South Korea.  Club members don’t even mind getting their hands dirty and are actively involved in the Adopt- A- Road Program taking care of two long

stretches of local roads.

Some of our major local projects have included significant contributions to the following institutions and agencies: Ross Memorial Hospital, Peterborough Regional

Health Centre, Lake St. Joseph Camp for the Blind, Five Counties Children Centre, Community Living. CNIB, Peterborough and Lindsay United Way Appeals, and the

Association for Children with Learning Disabilitiis.

When tragedy strikes in our community, the Fowlers Corners Lions Club is still there to offer not only monetary assistance, but also personal time to help people.

We have served individuals covering an area from Curve Lake to Millbrook and from Peterborough to Lindsay.

In 2020, our club is still vital and remains committed to serving the local and international communities.

2. Cruise Night@Craftworks 2020 Cancelled

 Due to the global COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, the Fowlers Corners Lions Club announced June 2, 2020 that Cruise Night @ CraftWorks will be cancelled for the 2020 season.   This decision is in keeping with the requirements of the various levels of our government, and guided by the expert advice being provided by local and provincial public health authorities.  All indications point to continued social distancing restrictions for some months to come, and we cannot host an event that puts the health and lives of our attendees, sponsors and volunteers at risk.

We look forward to a bigger and better 2021 Cruise Night season.  Our attendees and sponsors have been great supporters over our past five years, and we look forward to having them on board with us for the 2021 season.

Again, thanks to front line workers in healthcare, transportation, food service, emergency services, and anyone working to minimize the impact of the pandemic on our lives.

We look forward to seeing you in May, 2021.

What a Great Success It Was!!!!!!!

Allocation of proceeds from our July 18th Super Cruise Night "REV IT UP FOR KIDS" :

  • Five Counties Children’s Centre (Peterborough)
  • Camp Maple Leaf (Ennismore)

    

REV IT UP FOR KIDS - Oh What A Night It Was!!
 
On the hot sultry evening of July 18th the Fowlers Corners Lions Club, John Dewar's Autosource and CraftWorks@The Barn hosted another first rate
event for automotive cruise enthusiasts and spectators. 
 
Without the volunteers, from both within and outside the Lions Club, this type of event would not happen.   For many volunteers it was a long hot day,
starting well before noon.
 
Some, started the day before with the lime lining of the parking areas, only to have mother nature open the skies and wash away their work.
 
Our volunteers were simply fantastic!
 
One of them, Maryann Chapman of John Dewar's Autosource, ensured the event was fully captured in the many pictures she took of the automobiles,
winners, the band, etc.
 
The Rye Street Band provided lots of toe-tapping entertainment for the evening; this is the third year they have participated in this event. 
 
Thanks to CraftWorks for both the use of their beautiful property, and sponsoring the Rye Street band.
 
Thanks also to the auto enthusiasts who braved the heat and humidity to bring their vehicles for display, and to the hundreds of
spectators who attended in support of Five Counties Children's Centre and Camp Maple Leaf.
 
So, thank you to everyone who attended, donated raffle items, or contributed in any way to this very successful event!!
