Join our Club!
Because YOU could make the difference in somebody's life. Somebody . . . who lives in your community, somebody . . . who lives just down the street from you, somebody . . . who needs help but has slipped between the cracks of life.
It doesn't at a big commitment. Just a couple hours a week (heck it's not a career!).
Maybe you're already making a difference - on your own. Imagine if you could multiply your efforts by the size of this club.
Make a difference.
The Richmond Lions club has several fundraisers that are run at various times of the year.
2017 Sockeye Run
The fourth annual cruise of classic and custom cars is hosted by the Steveston Merchants Association. The cruise will take place on Sunday December 4th for 15 minutes from 12:15 to 12:30. The cars will drive along every street in the Village at least twice. The cars will park for a two hour display from 12:30 – 2:30 at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery and the Steveston Hotel and Buck & Ear Pub.
The car owners will bring toys or cash to donate to the Richmond Christmas Fund.
The Richmond Lions Club will provide canopies to cover the tables of donations and to sell their annual Christmas cakes. They will lead off the parade of special interest cars as they tour the historic scenic village of Steveston, BC.
The car cruise kicks off the Christmas season in Steveston along with Santa arriving by boat, the annual Old Fashioned Horse & Carriage rides, the Festival of Trees display inside the Cannery, and the bi-weekly Cannery Farmer’s Market.
Most of the special cars come from Richmond, while the rest will come from Surrey, Maple Ridge, Vancouver and Coquitlam. Half of the entries have entered a previous year, while the other half are here for the first time.
The first entry that came in was from Jordan & Carol McRae. They have the Christmas Spirit and dress up as elves from the North Pole. Their 1953 Ford F-100 is decked out with lights and giant candy canes.
Two members of the Richmond Street Rodders Club will bring two cars each. Bill Blackall will bring a rare 1968 Mercury Cyclone, that was entered last year, and also his newly completed 1938 Chev hot rod pickup. Doug Fraser will bring a beautiful Chev Nova and a fresh 1950 Ford. The Nova is outstanding. It is purple in colour with vibrant flames and a large blower sticking out of the hood.
Three Corvettes have entered and several convertibles as well. An outstanding new entry will be Bill Miloglav’s 1955 Cadillac Convertible. It is bright red in colour and has won numerous awards at various car shows during this past summer.
Car shows and car cruises are not as popular in the winter as they are in the summer. Classic car owners are making this date an exception because all the toys and donations are for children. All donations will go to the Richmond Christmas Fund, with staff on hand to receive them.
Every year the Richmond Lions club works with the Vancouver South Lions club to sell Christmas trees.
Short trees, tall trees, thick bushy trees and Charlie Brown trees. We have them all.
Why Buy a Lions Club Tree?
- Our prices are competive to or better than retail store prices.
- Our tree selection is way better.
Look to the Lions club tree lot for Douglas Firs, Plantation Firs, Grand Firs, Fraser Firs, Blue Spruce, and, occaisonally Scotch Pines.
- Our trees are Canadian grown and represent a renewable tradition.
- And the best part is all the money we raise goes right back into the community.
Everybody working at the tree lot is a volunteer and every dollar we make from Christmas tree sales goes toward making a better community. From the money pledged to John Oliver for the use of their schoolyard to the many Lions supported projects, you can feel good about purchasing this tree.
For your next Christmas tree look no futher than the Vancouver South Lions Club tree lot.
You can find us at John Oliver Secondary on the corner of Fraser St and 41st Ave. in Vancouver.
And not just any fruit cakes, but some of the best your money can buy!
These are 900g (2 lbs) of moist dark cake, loaded with fruit. Every cake comes protected in plastic in a decorative tin and just to make gift wrapping easy, each tin comes in a festive coloured box.
Know somebody who likes fruit cake? - Get them one for Christmas.
And while you're at it, dont forget to buy yourself one also.
Fruit cakes also make great corporate gifts.> >
