DAFFODIL MONTH March 31st, April 1st, & 2nd, 2017
The Stittsville District Lions join the fight against cancer by becoming a Daffodil Month Pin Seller. We help the Canadian Cancer Society make a difference in the lives of Canadians by asking the community to make donations and wear a Daffodil Month pin.
To some, the daffodil is just a flower, but to the Stittsville District Lions it is a symbol of strength and courage, and a symbol of life.
- It says we will not give up.
- It says we will fight back.
- It says we will beat Cancer.
The money we raise will allow the Canadian Cancer Society to continue funding life-saving cancer research that brings us one step closer to finding new ways to prevent cancer and develop improved treatment options. All efforts help to fund vital community-based services so that patients are not alone in their fight against cancer.
The Blind Anglers International Tournament (BAIT) was developed by the Lions Clubs of District A4 (Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec) to provide an opportunity, at no cost, for fun and excitement for legally blind people. In addition, it is intended to be an effective mechanism for their rehabilitation.
The Bait Program hooks up blind persons with sports fisherman to compete in a high-class fishing tournament each spring.
The Lions Funded initiative provides fun, entertainment, good food and fellowship free of charge.
Participants in this spring tournament get to meet others with similar physical limitations. The Lions are justifiably proud of the benefits offered by the BAIT program and would like to provide more people with the opportunity to participate.
Should you know of a sight handicapped person who might benefit from the opportunity to participate in this type of activity, or if you would like to discover how you might assist, please contact – (613) 836-4964 and a Lion member will contact you.
NO CHILD WITHOUT
The Canadian MedicAlert® Foundation is a charitable organization which is the leading provider of emergency medical information services linked to customized medical bracelets and necklets. We are pleased to be able to offer MedicAlert memberships to students (from age 4 to their 14th birthday) through the No Child Without® program in select schools. With the financial support Lions Clubs, the program allow students to receive the MedicAlert membership for FREE.
We now have 4 schools enrolled – Stittsville Public School; A. Lorne Cassidy Public School; Holy Spirit Catholic School and St. Stephen Catholic School.
It is essential to identify an hearing impairment as early in life as possible. The Digital Pilot Test is an audiometer unlike any other. You can easily screen children as young as three years old and be confident of getting accurate, reliable results.
The equipment is designed to make sure your child can see well with each eye, and with both eyes together with good depth perception. It will also screen for the possibility that your child may need to wear eyeglasses to improve his or her ability to see. Local Lions participate in mobile vision screening clinics (vans) to be conducted in participating schools.
RECYCLE FOR SIGHT
An ongoing program to recycle used eyeglasses to the needy in targeted Third World Countries is supported by the Lions Clubs across the region. If you have any used eye glasses you would like to donate, please call the Lions hall at (613) 836-4964.
