West Hill - Highland Creek Lions Club at opening of new library

President Terry Fontana presents cheque to Michele Hull for pee wee baseballSeveral members of the West Hill - Highland Creek Lions Club attended the opening of the new libary adjacent to the Heron Park Community Centre. The Library was built on land originally donated to the city by the West Hill - Highland Creek Lions Club and will feature a plaque commemorating the Lions Club's contribution.

Councillor Gay Cowbourne said this about the Lions Club: "Some of you may or may not know that in 1950 the West Hill - Highland Creek Lions Club donated a parcel of land to what was then the Township of Scarborough. That parcel of land is where the Heron Park community centre was built and where this library now sits, so I want to take this opportunity today, to once again thank the Lions Club for their generous donation of the land all of those years ago.

There is a beautiful plaque presently being made which will be a permanent feature in the entranceway, but unfortunately, it wasn't quite ready to have it on the wall today. As soon as it is received it will over there, visible as you come into the building, and it will proudly acknowledge and recognize the initial gift of land and the ongoing dedication and service that the Lions Club gives to this community."
