Lions Club of Cobourg

Message from the President

Since our charter in 1950, The Lions Club of Cobourg has lived up to Lions International’s motto of “WE SERVE”. Over the years, our community projects have included donations to The Northumberland Hills Hospital chemotherapy unit, local Sports associations, bursary and scholarships to area schools,individuals and families in need of assistance, CNIB, Baltimore Arena, Lions Pavilion in Victoria Park and an organizing sponsor of the Cobourg Santa Claus parade plus many more projects too numerous to list.

The Cobourg Lions Club is proud to have been the first area service club to have had one of its members elected to an international office. Past Club President William H. (Bill) Maguire was elected International Director at the 1977 international convention in New Orleans, USA.

Lions Clubs International, established in 1917 is the world’s largest service club with over 1.4 million members in 205 countries and geographical areas. Since 1925 when Helen Keller challenged Lions to become “Knights of the Blind“ by the then International President Lion Harry Mewman of Toronto, Canada, we have worked to end preventable blindness. The Lions Foundation of Canada founded by Lions Clubs provide dog guides to Canadians through four programs, Leader Dogs for the Blind, Canine Vision Canada, Hearing Ear Dogs and Special Skill Dogs.

On behalf of the Directors and members of the Cobourg Lions Club, I thank you for your continued support of Lions projects and if you happen to see one of our members in our Lions vests say hello.. we’d love to hear from you.

George Laurencic
