Leamington Heroes

Leamington Lions Open Playground

The Leamington Lions Club held their official opening of the Leamington Lions Club Playground on August 6/08 at Seacliff Park. Total cost of the project was $250,000.00 and was financed by a grant from the Trillium Foundation and a large donation from the United Food & Commercial Workers, the Municipality of Leamington and the residents of Leamington. This will stand for a long time as a legacy of the Leamington Lions Club. People have told us that it was long overdue is much appreciated. It is fully accessible to all children.

The Leamington Lions Club held their Annual Tomato Fest Pancake Breakfast on August 17,2008. Pictured above are members cooking and serving pancakes and sausages to our patrons. This is truly a member project as they show up at 6:30 a.m. to setup and start cooking. The Club raised a net profit of 1,415.76. A thank you to all the members who gave of their time for this project. This is truly men at work
