achievements since our humble beginnings have been many and varied. One of our
earliest projects was the equipping of playgrounds at the
Elementary Schools in the Valley. Within just six months of
our Club's formation, we had raised $35,000 to establish the Musquodoboit Valley Medical Centre.
Within months of the establishment of this Centre, positive steps were taken towards the
creation of a new modern hospital for the Musquodoboit Valley
area. This was followed very shortly by the opening of the
first drug store in the Valley.
During the first ten years of the
Musquodoboit Valley Lions Club, over $80,000 was raised and
redistributed through the Musquodoboit Valley area. In 1982, the Musquodoboit Valley Lions Club
extended the family and service of Lionism by sponsoring the
Musquodoboit Harbour and District Lions Club.
Our Club has contributed many thousands of dollars to the schools in the form of bursaries,
funding for school trips, funding for individual students to attend youth
events and Safe Graduation. We sponsor Peace Poster and Drug Awareness
programs. We have a large stock of home care and medical aid equipment
available to loan free of charge on a first come-first served basis for those
in need. These things have all been possible because we have received and
continue to receive much support financially, morally, and
spiritually from the people around us.
joined our club in 1996. As Lions, we attempt to alleviate need in our
community. There have been many hours of service to the people and we have a
genuine concern for the welfare of our fellow citizens in the Musquodoboit
Valley. We are always mindful of our motto “We Serve”.
Lions membership is open to anyone 19 years
of age and over. If you want to know more about our Club,
