You know us!  The Almonte Lions Club has been serving this community for over 75 years. While we are all social distancing, and doing our part to “stay home and stay safe”, be assured, that even in these difficult times, the Lions continue to serve. This note is to highlight two projects that are now underway:

  1. Our May, month-long, “Giving Thanks and Giving Back.” This is our plan to express the gratitude of our community for the work that essential service workers and front line personnel have been performing during these difficult times.  Details of this project have been shared on Millstone already posted separately.
  2. We invite you to participate in our Rain Barrel Fundraising Project.

Spring is here! Soon we will be enjoying our lawns and gardens—even if we must still remain socially isolated for a little longer. The Almonte Lions Club has arranged with RainBarrel.ca to provide first quality Rain Barrels to customers in the Mississippi Mills area.  Orders will be placed online by a customer, and thanks to March Road Motorsports, the barrels will be delivered to your door in a “touch-free” totally safe manner.

(As you may know, our friends at the Hub Hospice- now Home Hospice North Lanark – have sold these Rain Barrels in the past. They cannot provide this service this year.)

The Almonte Lions Club has assumed the responsibility for looking after the Rain Barrel needs in our community this year.

RainBarrell.ca specializes in truckload, bulk orders for charities and non- profits and they are able to provide these products at prices lower than you would pay at retail outlets.  Most Rain Barrels cost $65 and their full range of products is available from their website.

Delivery to your doorstep is included in the order price — thanks to the co-operation of March Road Motorsport. All profits will flow back into our community through the activities of the Almonte Lions.  Orders may be placed at any time, now with delivery scheduled for the first week in June.  If you want a rain barrel, now is the time to get one or two!
