On May 18, 2017, members of the various District N-1 Lions clubs, including District Governor Lion Brennan Beaumont, and First Lady Lion Cindi Beaumont, presented some 70 quilts and throws to the Cassidy Lake Centre. Each quilt is a unique piece of art and will bring comfort, warmth and color to the girls’ and boys’ dormitories and community areas.
The district is part of Lions International, a group of volunteers dedicated to humanitarian work and serving the community.
Cindi Beaumont of the Riverview Lions Club said the quilts help to cater to the individuality of the youth and to communicate something profound. “It’s nice to go in and [have] your bed looking different than the other ones. Every single one of them is unique, just like every single member here [at] Portage.’’
