The Markham Lions are a dedicated group of men and women who, over the years, have voluntarily raised over 1.5 million dollars to support a variety of community projects for the benefit of all.
"As we reflect on our past accomplishments over the past 80 years, good deeds from long ago to recent times, our Markham Lions Club has always made a real difference and positive impact in our community through our hands-on efforts; fundraising skills; dedication to service that has been driven by our energetic, passionate, community oriented members. For this we are very blessed and ever grateful. As our club president for this 2023 - 2024 Lions' year, I would ask that we continue to focus on the needs of our community while being guided by our eight global causes. If we do that with a firm belief in serving through Lionism and all the causes that we stand for, we will ensure that we continue for another 80 years and more. We serve and we welcome new members, men and women of all ages, to come join us in service as well."
Lion President Charles Herriot
(Letter from the President)
The International President's Leadership award is the third highest honour in Lionism and is given to those Lions who have demonstrated significant leadership contributions. Lion Jim Doak falls in this category and we are proud to celebrate this achievement with MLC's one and only Jim Doak.
Congratulations to one of the most deserving recipients.
