About Portage


The Riverview Lions Club has been a proud supporter and partner of Portage Atlantic’s for many years, having made significant financial contributions to the drug addiction rehabilitation program at Cassidy Lake.

On March 6th, 2010, the Club celebrated its 50th anniversary as a dedicated community organisation. Over two hundred guests were present, including Portage Atlantic Board Members, Marie-Claude Blais and Ron Evans.

Moncton resident and Portage Atlantic graduate Fred Laforge was the guest speaker at the event. He spoke about his experience at Portage and about the positive drug-free lifestyle he has maintained over the past eight years. Fred was humbled by the honour of being asked to speak and was given a standing ovation following his address.

After the dinner service, the Riverview Lions announced a donation to Portage Atlantic and presented a cheque to Marie-Claude Blais.
