New Lions club reaches its goal

Raija Rosenthal has succeeded in reaching her goal of 20 members necessary to apply for a charter as a Lions Club in Leaside.

Named the Leaside100 Lions in honour of the neighbourhood’s 100th anniversary in 2013, it has already pledged support for Spinal Cord Injury Ontario.

The club met Feb. 3 to elect officers and Rosenthal predicts it will have its charter within two months. A charter celebration is being planned for the new members, their families and guests. Rosenthal predicts up to 100 may attend.
