Dear Lions,

On behalf of Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides, thank you for your club's recent sponsorship of a Canine Vision Dog Guide team.  We are grateful, as always, for the Sackville Lions Club's generosity and dedication to Dog Guides.  When the sponsorship is matched with a client, the club will be notified.

Together we can enhance the lives of more Canadians who are blind or visually impaired, by providing safety and independence through a specially trained Dog Guide.  Our clients often remind us that their Dog Guide's value goes far beyond the sum of its skills.  By instilling confidence as a devoted presence, strengthening connections to the people and places around them, and providing safety.

Once again, thank you for your support.  We are truly appreciative of this generousity.

Yours sincerely,

Kelly Russell

Fundraising Coordinator


Dear Sackville Lions,

Thank you for your generous donation to support Lions Quest programs in Canada through our promotional contest.

Through the generous support of Lions Clubs across Canada, over 50,000 adults have participated in our workshops, reaching more than 3 million children and youth.  Many of these enthusiastic and dedicated teachers have reported a significant improvement in the climate in the classrooms and schools as well as the skills, attitudes and behaviors of young people in their care.  We are also reaching out into the community - and involving even more adults like police, coaches, youth workers, parents, and many others in achieving our dream.

Develope your skills so that you're a strong individual and be a role model.  It has to be about feelings and plans - they go together like brain and heart.  Be honest with yourself and to others." - Lions Clubs International President Gudrun Yngvadottir

Thank you for working with us to achieve Lions Quest Canada's dream.

Yours in Lionism,

Joanne McQuiggan

Executive Director


Dear Sackville Lions,

Thank you so much for your donation to Brigadoon Village in memory of our founder and friend, Dave McKeage.  We wanted to follow up with you to let you know that the numerous and generous memorial gifts received in Dave's honour will collectively send 30 children living with health conditions and other life challenges to camp this summer.  It is because of this kind support that we will be able to continue Dave's legacy and transform the lives of children, for decades to come.

Brigadoon Village is now the largest pediatric illness camp program in the country and after eight summers of operation, we have seen over 3,500 kids experience one of our 14 life-changing camp programs, and we are committed to carrying on Dave's incredible legacy of helping these extraordinary kids tap into their limitless potential.

Thank you for supporting Brigadoon, thank you for honouring Dave in this way, and thank you for giving 30 extraordinary kids a chance to be ordinary this summer.


Your friends at Brigadoon Village

Dear Sackville Lions Club,

I so appreciate the partnership and generousity of spirit of the Sackville Lions Club when it comes to young people.  You may be based in Lower Sackville, NS but you're also a part of this national community of allies for youth.  Your kindness is an incredible comfort to the thousands of kids who reach out to us every day, needing to be heard.

I'm so grateful for your passion to invest in our young people.  It's the right thing to do, and you set the example for us every time you give.  Together, we're changing the landscape of our country as we work to create solutions for the wellbeing of kids and young people.

Dear Sackville NS Lions Club,

Please accept our thanks for your recent gift of $2,000 to Beacon House.  Your support is much appreciated.  There are many in our community struggling with food security.  Your support helps Beacon House to continue to respond to that need.

As you know, the mission of the Beacon House Interfaith Society is to provide food and good used clothing to those in need in our community.  From November 1st to November 30th, 2018, Beacon House needed to and was able to supply 630 orders of food.  This represents food for 1613 people.  During the Christmas season of 2018, Beacon House, with the support of the community, assisted 552 families with a Christmas turkey and a hamper of groceries.  This is in addition to  our regular food distribution.

Thanks again for your support.

Dear Sackville NS Lions:

Thank you for your kind support of youth at Phoenix.  Your contribution this past year was incredibly significant to ensuring young people in need had access to experiences, opportunities to build critical life-skills, and supportive adults, launching them further toward independence.

You are an important part of the Phoenix family.  It is only together that we can improve the health and vibrancy of our community.  Helping youth navigate and over-come barriers and challenges as they transition to adulthood is pivitol.  Thank you for taking action to provide the support for young people in need.

This has been a busy and eventful year full of hard work, determination, collaboration, and victories.  The initiative they take each day to work with our team, engage in honest conversations about the challenges, and put in the effort to effect change is truly inspirational and humbling to witness.

Thank you for believing youth matter.

All the best,

Timothy Crooks

Executive Director


Dear Sackville NS Lions,

On behalf of the Sackville Rivers Association, I would like to extend our sincere thanks to the Sackville Lions Club for supporting the Sackville Greenway Opening on September 29th 2018.  Your preparation in mowing the grass, providing tables & chairs and preparing the very good food resulted in a smooth running BBQ.  Your efficiency in hosting the event was recognized by many of the more than 80 attendees and is greatly appreciated.  The location of the event in the parking area, overlooking the trail and the Little Sackville River, and promity to the bridge, provided an excellent venue.

We are very pleased with your partnership in the trail opening and excited that the Sackville NS Lions have offered to adopt the trail.  Trails bring people back to the river and connect communities and places along the waterway.

We congratulate you on your commitment in supporting the community and helping to engender community spirit.

Yours sincerely,

Walter N. Regan                                                                  David Waugh
