We are proud to announce that on January 10, 2005, the West Hill - Highland Creek Lions Club was awarded the Councillor Socknacki presents award to West Hill - Highland Creek Lions ClubLong Term Service Awards by the Scarborough Community Council Toronto Parks and Recreation East District, at its 47th Annual Volunteer Recognition Night, for outstanding achievement and service to the community.

The major objective of the Club in its early years was the establishment of a recreation centre and, to this end, acquired the property now known as Heron Park. The land was eventually deeded to the then Scarborough Township, who further developed the property to include a swimming pool, tennis courts, an arena and other recreation facilities.

Over the last 60 years, the Club has actively supported and sponsored many projects, including youth sports teams, bursaries to local high schools, local seniors' groups and hospitals, kidney and diabetes foundations, summer camp for children with disabilities, the C.N.I.B., and many others. The Club looks forward to its continued participation in and support of new and existing projects.
