A NOTE FROM THE MAGNETAWAN LIONS CLUB:

 

Dear seasonal residents:


I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself, I am Austin Toth, current President of the Magnetawan Lions Club.  There can be no doubt that we are living in unusual times. The summer was very different this year with so many of you unable to be here.


As Lions, our primary focus continues to be on community service. During the pandemic we have tried to be creative in how we serve. We moved away from in person meetings to virtual meetings. This allowed us to continue to garner input from our members about community needs during this time. As a result we  purchased and delivered over 125 warm meals to seniors, living on their own, in our community. This was widely appreciated. Recognizing the economic hardship being  experienced during this time,  the Magnetawan Lions donated $4,000 to the local food bank. In addition we also provided assistance to the Huntsville Hospice.

The pandemic restrictions have meant that our club has not been able to hold the social events that we enjoy so much - Wild game dinner, fish fries, etc.  The cancellation of these activities has had a devastating impact on our clubs fundraising. 

As the leaves begin to turn, our focus has begun to sharpen on those in need at Christmas. It’s hard to believe that we’re only a few months away from that special time of year. As in past years we expect to help over 30 families/individuals again this Christmas. Support includes providing full turkey/ham dinners, gifts for the children and gift wrapped tins of cookies for approximately 60 seniors in our community. I am worried that as the pandemic continues the need may be higher.

If you would like to to make a donation to our Christmas fund, your assistance would be most graciously appreciated. Donations can be made by check to the Magnetawan Lions Club. Our mailing address is P. O. Box 250, Magnetawan, Ontario, P0A 1P0

I am proud that our club continues to actively meet and serve the community of Magnetawan and look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event next summer.  Have a safe and healthy winter.


Yours truly

Austin Toth
President Magnetawan Lions Club

 

 

Magnetawan Lions Christmas Basket Project:

Thanks to the terrific community support we provided 35 families with food boxes that included all ingredience for a complete turkey or ham dinner. We took this opportunity to add non-perishable food boxes for 14 of these families.

Forty three children received wrapped gifts supplemented with donated mitts, socks, scarves, etc.

To make Christmas more enjoyable 45 boxes of wrapped cookies were delivered to seniors in the "Home for the Aged" or living alone.

Christmas Basket donations are kept in a separate account and used exclusively for this project or to buy toys for children when their home is destroyed by fire.

Kindly forward donations to:
