The Victoria Poppy Fund’s annual Poppy Campaign includes bagging poppies to put in poppy trays to distribute to businesses and shopping centers. With COVID this was a perfect activity to do at home and our members quickly responded. In a couple days, we completed 100,000 poppies by bagging them in bags of 100. We will be helping with other activities such as delivering poppies, pinning ribbons on wreaths and being available for 2-3 hour shifts at malls to distribute poppies and collect donations.
This is a perfect example of how our Club lives the Lions mission ‘To Serve’ in our Community!
These wonderful gentleman are the last two Chinese Veterans in Victoria. Our Club provides them dinner each year at our November Meetings.
Our next fundraiser is on June 26th and this is an important one! With our busy lives, sometimes we can forget to destroy old documents, and we are here to help! With personal & corporate tax season over, we can shred your documents while you wait!
Thank you to our wonderful sponsors Tony Joe of PRIME Real Estate Team, Used.ca, Dave Burden of Chambers Advisory Group and Colleen Kovacs of Broadmead Legal Centre.
