A huge bouquet to all the wonderful citizens on the Peninsula who donated so generously to the 30th Annual Sidney Lions Christmas Hamper Program. Contributions came from many groups and organizations as well as many individuals.
This year, we provided Christmas hampers to 455 families, all of whom reside here on the Saanich Peninsula. It is so heartwarming especially in these tough economic times to be a part of such a wonderful caring community.
We, the members of the Sidney Lions Club, the Food Bank Board of Directors, Administrator and all the hard working volunteers are truly grateful.
Another huge bouquet to our food bank Administrator Bev Elder and all of the hard working volunteers who put in countless hours, not just at Christmas, but all throughout the year.
Bill DesLauriers, President of the Sidney Lions Club and Bill Foster, Vice President of the Sidney Lions Food Bank
I heartily commend the Sidney Business Association (SBA) and their sponsors for the recent organization of the Christmas Tree Festival at the Mary Winspear Centre.
The festival generated a donation to the Sidney Lions Food Bank of nearly $800 which made it a very commendable holiday event. Thanks go out to those who donated and to Bob and Patti and the SBA’s sponsors for the great community event we enjoy every year. Please continue this noteworthy event in the future.
On Dec. 17 I lost my wallet in the Thrifty Foods parking lot in Sidney. I want to thank the wonderful and honest person who found it and took it to the police station — I’m very grateful! It really made my Christmas.
