Annual Summer BBQ
On August 25th, our annual summer BBQ was held at the
home of Civitan Ross Turner in Lancaster, Ontario. Members and guests enjoyed the beautiful weather
and delicious sweet corn, steaks, baked potatoes and veggies from the Turner
garden. Desserts were awesome too! A great time was had by all.
Civitans Steve Yardley-Jones and Ricky Held sat at Plaza Pointe Claire on Saturday, September 7th for several hours to promote the Lakeshore Civitan Club and what we do! They handed out promotional material as well as samples of Claxton Fruit Cake.
Opening Dinner Meeting
September 18th Lakeshore Civitan held their opening meeting at St. Hubert BBQ in Kirkland. Our guest speaker was Adrian Bercovici from the Generations Foundation who told us how he feeds thousands of children in many inner schools in Montreal without any help from the government. Civitan Ricky Held presented Adrian with a cheque from Lakeshore Civitan to help support this cause.
Civitan Claude Dessureault presented a certificate to Civitan Ross Turner for bringing in his 11th new member to Lakeshore Civitan.
Helping in the Community
On September 25th several Lakeshore Civitan members helped out at WIAIH’s (West Island Association for Intellectually Handicapped) fundraising BBQ at Rene Depot in Pointe-Claire. Civitan Claude Darmond did the barbequing while others helped out handing out the food. The afternoon was a success and a great example of Civitan supporting the community!
