Celebrating 70 Years of
Community Service

2008 was an anniversary year, celebrating 70 years of community service by the Port Dover Lions Club. Lion Chief Jim Fekete realising the importance of the event established a committee, chaired most capably by Lion Pat Young, to organise a Fun Year throughout 2008. We wanted to invite the residents to help us celebrate, while giving back to our most supportive and appreciative community.
70th Anniversary Pin Every Lion received an attractive 70th Anniversary Pin (designed by the Lion Chief, shown on the left) as a Christmas present. Since our Charter was granted in October, it was decided to have a Family Fun Day July 13th at Silver Lake, when the weather was more amiable. The kids had a lot of FUN and all enjoyed the day's FREE festivities.

Lion Chief hoped this would become an annual event. The good will and positive exposure to the community, especially the young people, from such festivities is immeasurable. Capturing the hearts and minds of children could build generations of enthusiastic and dedicated Lions.
It is often the little things we do, that pay the biggest dividends.

The anniversary celebration took place October 1st in the Lions Community Centre, on St. George Street. Special guests included Mayor Dennis Travale, Councillor John Wells, Lions District Governor Al Beamer and representatives of many Lions Clubs, guests and most Port Dover Lions, as well as many former Lions club members.
Lion Lee Buffin, a member since 1972, spoke eloquently to the gathered about our club's interesting History and some accomplishments.

A fabulous meal was enjoyed by all, served by Knechtels. The meal was followed by the talented Gord Massey performing his hilarious vaudeville act. The evening concluded with the international recoding artist and local favourite Tia McGraff and her husband delighting the gathered. Many thanks to all who helped make the year a memorable and successful one. A huge thank you to all the clubs who joined our celebrations and donated generously, wishing our club continued success.
