Blackstock Cartwright Lions Club: Dr. Steve Russell, a family physician for over 25 years in Port Perry, spoke to our Lions and guests about the hospice planned for North Durham, on the former site of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Elementary School in Port Perry. The concept started in England for palliative patients in the last stages of life who needed comfort, peace and relief in their final days; no one should die alone. The organizing committee is comprised of volunteers who have worked to create a Site Plan, arranged for assessments, and are awaiting permits, as Oak Ridges Hospice will be a registered charity, and the first hospice in Durham. Care is free to clients, with 50 percent of the funding coming from the government and the balance through fundraising. The Ministry of Health will provide a capital grant to help with the construction. The six physicians involved in the planning will rotate through the scheduling to provide care, while being supported by Registered Nurses. There are opportunities here for volunteered service, too. Dr. Russell hinted that this would be a great opportunity to involve the Lions Clubs of Scugog. Photos were taken of Dr. Russell receiving a donation of $3,500, proceeds from our Hallowe’en Dance, for Oak Ridges Hospice from our Lions.

Blackstock - Cartwright Lions Club. Just home from a terrific weekend with the Governors from 2014-2015 at Lions Camp Dorset. This camp has an amazing history. In 1972 the Hamilton East Lions rented cottages in Parry Sound for two families living with the need for dialysis. A third cottage was rented to house the dialysis machines. In 1973 six families were brought to cottages in Dorset for a relaxing get-away. By 1974 they brought twelve families to Dorset, but with funds exhausted another 30 families were left on a waiting list. The idea of a Lions Camp Dorset came about at the 1974 International Lions Convention. Lion Sandy Ailles of Dorset and Lion Herb Walpole of Hamilton East had a chance meeting. The Dorset Lions had obtained 380 acres of crown land in the early 70’s as part of plan to build baseballs diamonds. However, after hearing of Hamilton East’s dialysis retreats, the idea of building a full-scale camp emerged.With some assistance from corporate sponsors and various government grants, the Lions of Ontario have developed the Camp into a unique facility that is now valued at $3,500,000. This non-profit organization, is recognized by the government as an Independent Health Facility. The Lions Camp Dorset was founded and continues to be supported by the Lions & Lioness Clubs of Ontario. Today, as in the past, groups of volunteers from clubs around the province give their time and experience to build new projects and upgrade the old. Starting from three cottages, with dialysis being performed in the back of a converted school bus, Camp Dorset has grown to enhance the dialysis patient’s vacation experience. Despite its size, Camp Dorset manages to maintain its grass roots style. While services expand, the client’s cost is kept to a minimum. The result is a state-of-the-art dialysis treatment facility which provides a place for a family getaway into the heart of Ontario’s vacation land. For more details, see www.lionscampdorset.ca

Blackstock Cartwright Lions Club:
Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF), the financial arm of our International Association of the Lions Clubs, has been called upon frequently in the last few weeks to help those who have been devastated by hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, etc. What typically happens is, that when an area is classified as a disaster zone, funds are sent from LCIF to the Lions Clubs in the area to provide food, shelter, and necessary amenities. Within 48 hours, and sometimes sooner, thousands of dollars are sent to the affected areas for the Lions to administer. All over the world, Lions Clubs make annual donations to LCIF to maintain this process. Individual Lions as well as members of the public, are encouraged to see this as a valid and worthwhile project to consider supporting. In very recent years, the Lions of Canada Fund for LCIF has been created, so individuals may make donations and receive a receipt. If you would be so kind as to send a cheque to further this cause, the Canadian contact is Administrator, Stan Durward - 50 Southern Court, P. O. Box 38, Sunderland ON L0C 1H0. Please note that every cent of your donation to LCIF will go directly to the cause, and no portion of these funds is used for administration. It's known that private donations range from $10 to $2,000,000, averaging out to $250 a donation. LCIF would appreciate your consideration.
Remember our 'Walk for Dog Guides' is happening on Sunday, October 6th, with registration in the parking lot of the Blackstock Rec Centre at 10:00 a.m. The walk is heading out at 11:00 a.m. This is a 5 km walk through Blackstock, ending up at the Rec Centre where we'll have a barbecue on for your pleasure.
