Members of the District N-1 (NB and PEI) Lions and their families gathered at the Cassidy Lake drug addiction rehabilitation centre for an afternoon of holiday celebration for the youth in treatment. All were eagerly awaiting the arrival of Santa and his elves who work diligently every year to find the “special” gift wished for by each Portage Atlantic youth.
“Having the Lions here at Portage to celebrate Christmas with was such a blessing! I felt like we were all just one big family. It was so much fun," stated a Portage Atlantic resident. "When I opened my gift I felt loved and cared for. It made me shed tears of joy knowing that a family that knew nothing about me other than my first name and my last initial bought me an incredible gift. I will forever keep you in my prayers.”
Portage Atlantic is very grateful for the long-standing support of the Lions Club and for their genuine concern for the youth in treatment.
