Portage Atlantic would like to thank the Barkers Point Northside Lions in Fredericton, the Simonds Lions in Saint John, and the Rexton Lions for helping to make Cassidy Lake’s library a more comfortable and enjoyable place to hang out.
The Lions Clubs recently donated three leather chairs, three ottomans, and three floor lamps to the centre. The Cassidy Lake library is now fully functional, and with the new furniture and lamps in place, it has become even more welcoming to the residents.
The donations have been especially appreciated by the residents as they work to further their education while in treatment at Portage. At Portage Academy, many residents realise that learning helps them to direct their attention away from the negative influences that brought them to Portage.
