Dear Families and Friends,

It is said that the greatest legacy we can leave our children is happy memories. We all want to leave our mark on this world – to know that our life mattered.

But what does it mean to leave a legacy? It means putting a stamp on the future and making a contribution to future generations.

Kingsville Lions, whose service in Kingsville began in 1933, began a legacy project when they donated a parcel of land at 23 Mill Street West to the Town of Kingsville for community use and the development of Lions Park in 2003. Development of the park is now under way and is scheduled to be completed in 2022.

After 88 years, our commitment to Kingsville continues. This year we have pledged $65,000 towards the purchase of inclusive playground equipment for Lions Park but we need your help to reach our goal.

Children have different abilities and different stages of development. Some kids may need a little more support or may need special playground equipment access due to mobility concerns or other conditions.

While accessible playground equipment helps children with disabilities enjoy play, inclusive playground equipment goes a step beyond accessibility. Inclusive play equipment allows all children to play within one recreational area. Inclusive equipment is meant to allow everyone to play together using the same equipment and can include accessible equipment, quiet spaces for kids who get overwhelmed easily, and other pieces of equipment that offer something for every need. Wouldn’t a playground like that make many happy memories for children of all abilities in Kingsville?

We hope you will consider joining us in leaving a legacy for the children of Kingsville by making a donation to the Kingsville Lions Play-It-Forward in Lions Park fundraiser. This is an excellent opportunity for you to put your stamp on the future and make a contribution to future generations.

Contributions are still being accepted. Cheques can be mailed to
