The Lampman Lions club gave 6 donations on Saturday to different areas of the community. 

"We're donating on behalf of the Lampman and District Lions Club. We do several fundraising throughout the year, the sports day and street dance is our biggest fundraiser of the year and so we're pretty excited about it," stated President Lion Larry.

"These funds are raised throughout the year, like I said our street dance, our sports day is our major one and then we do a couple lotteries throughout the year, we also do snow mobile rallies and whatever we can participate in and raise money to give back to the community." 

"What we hope to see accomplished bis, we get caught up in a world of where it feels like sometimes it's take, take, take and the Lampman Lions Club likes to think more of giving something back to the community. We handed out several checks to the Fire Department, Ladies in Bloom, Families in need and the Health Car Auxiliary to name a few," he shared.

The recipients included Lampman Rec Board who received $2500, Community in Bloom which received $1500, Lampman Library which received $1000, Health Care Auxiliary who received $1000, Lapman Pool Fund which received $25000 and the Lampman Fire Department who received $2000. 

"It's always great to see the Lions club donating towards the different community events. We're in the process of getting a new pumper Rescue truck, so that will probably be going towards that big purchase. They're a great supporter of the community and we just thank them greatly on behalf of the Lampman Fire and Rescue," shared Grant Palmer the Chief of Lampman Fire and Rescue.
