Items of Note

Hello District A15 Lions:

I do hope everyone is enjoying this fall like weather so far. I also wanted to correct something that I reported in my last email about the Top Ten Clubs for the 2013 Walk for Dog Guides as below:

  • Placing 7th in the top 10
    The great team work of the following Clubs:
    Lions Clubs of Kitchener, Waterloo & Area (Bridgeport, KW Community Spirit Lions Club of Kitchener, Kitchener Oktoberfest, Kitchener Pioneer, Lions Club of Kitchener, Lions Club of Waterloo & St. Jacobs Lions Club)

    *Placing 10th in the top 10

Guelph Lions Club along with help from Guelph Royal City Lions Club.

I am happy to report that out of the $1.1 million dollars raised this year, District A15 Lions, Lioness and Leo Clubs brought in $76,535.44!

Awesome job Lions, Lioness and LEO's. The amount raised for each walk is important no matter what the dollar total is at the end of the day, every dollar counts and is making a difference.

Thank you all for all of your hard work this past year for the Walk for Dog Guides and I hope we can go even higher for the 2014 results!!!
