President's Message 2016 - 2017

President’s message 2017-2018

Another Lions year. Another year to do great things. That’s what drew me to the Lions Club. They do so much service.

When we moved into the area my father joined the Udora-Leaskdale Lions. I got to see all the good work they did. I even helped out at their activities from time to time. My mother joined the club, then I did. We talk about Lions being a family. It really is!

Even though I’ve moved out of the area, I continue to be a member of the Udora-Leaskdale Lions. It’s wonderful to be a part of such a dedicated group of service minded people.

Wilkins Family Fund Raiser

The Udora Leaskdale Lions club is hosting a benefit dance this Saturday, October 3rd, for the Wilkins family, long-time Udora residents whose home was lost in a fire.  All proceeds will go toward a building fund to help them replace their home. UPDATE: Thanks to all who came out and supported the Wilkins family! the fund raiser was a great success and a sum of approximately $ 7,500 was raised.  We also wish to thank those that contributed to our silent auction for their generous contribution.
