The Belle River Lions Club is celebrating 75 Years of Service.  Unfortunately, due to the current circumstances our community celebration scheduled for Saturday, May 23, 2020 had to be cancelled.  Another part of the 75 year celebration is seen here in the picture where members of the Belle River Lions Club are seen planting 15 trees in the Lions Park.  In the park from left to right is (along the fence) - Lions Mark Mahovlich (shovel in hand), Debbie Lemire, Pauline Laporte, Bob Percy, President Steve Mahovlich holding the tree and 2 great employees from the Town of Lakeshore.  The Lions Park has over the years seen other additions due to the Lions Club - park benches and a concession stand in conjunction with the Baseball Association.  This is just one of the many projects the Club has completed over 75 years.  Other projects within the community include a splash pad at Lakeview Park, assistance to the Food Pantry, sponsoring a youth group called the Lakeshore Leo Club for young people ages 12 to 18, participation at the Opening Day of Baseball, Stroll the Street and SunSplash events, offering the loan of free medical equipment, hosting a Halloween Children's Party that has been going on for over 70 years, participation in the Remembrance Day parade and ceremonies, hosting a Diabetes Awareness Day in October and a walk for Lion's Foundation of Canada Dog Guides in May - just to name a few.  We also support other youth groups such as the Boy Scouts, Girl Guides and Brownies as well as the St. Anne's Robotics Team and the Belle River High School hockey team as well as a bursary for the Belle River High School.  If anyone wishes to join the club, please contact any member of the Belle River Lions Club or contact the Club President Steve Mahovlich at (519) 728-9637 or Club Secretary Joyce Mahovlich at (519) 682-9422.
