This also is a good time to join the Lions International organization—the largest volunteer group in the world.

The Lions will be in B.C. helping the victims of the wildfires. They often are the first group on the ground at any natural disaster.

The clubs here in Rainy River District quickly are becoming known as groups that care about others, and who are willing to do anything to make their communities and the world a better place to live.

Interested in joining and giving of your time and talent? Call a member that you know or send me a message at
