Cowichan Lake’s own Lions Club is quite the ambitious group of town stewards.
Raising between $12,000 and $18,000 per year for the community, a handful of members were out last weekend to sell hot dogs outside Lake Cowichan’s Country Grocer.
“It’s going into the fund-raising we need to put into the town,” member Eileen Pilkington said, of last weekend’s hot dog sale.
One of the many things the Lions Club does for the community is their Lions Day for Kids, to take place at Saywell Park, Saturday, July 30.
The day is intended for kids aged 12 and under, and will include things like hot dogs, games, prizes, and many other family-friendly activities, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“There’s not much for them to do. That’s what the Lions Club is for – the youth,” Pilkington said.
The date is tentative. Should the weather not cooperate, the activities will be rescheduled for the following Saturday, August 6.
“You can’t play games in the rain,” Pilkington said.
Cowichan Lake’s Lions Club meets at 7 p.m. the second and fourth Monday of every month, at the Lions Den, off of Oak Lane toward the old J.H. Boyd school property.
Prospective members can simply drop in a meeting to express their interest, or phone members Eileen or Brenda at 250-749-3345.
