Centennial Service Challenge - Sept 2014 Report

The new Centennial Service Challenge (CSC) is an LCI initiative created to celebrate Lions' 100 years of service, and to challenge clubs to acknowledge their community service projects by reaching 100 million people worldwide, by December 2017.

Penny's BAIT Weekend Testimonial

BAIT Weekend

I am a senior who has enjoyed going to BAIT for several years. This is my testimony of why BAIT is an important event to me annually. I live alone, with my guide dog. We don’t have family in Ontario, so getting out to events is difficult for me. I am totally blind and have no hearing. I use cochlear implants that has restored some of my hearing, but hearing is all dependent on technology. we live in a changing world. Some changes are welcomed, while other changes are unwanted. BAIT is the one thing that has remained as a positive constant event that has made a real difference in my life. For the first 3 years I attended BAIT, my husband went with me. We had happy times. He was also visually impaired. He helped me to communicate, as at this time I could not hear to communicate. Over the years since David’s death, going to BAIT felt bitter-sweet, at first, but now it is a real joy once again. My life changed when David, my husband died, but BAIT was still an event I could look forward to. I have had the same pro angler over the last 8 or 9 years I have been attending BAIT. I feel so secure knowing he would be there to assist me to fish. I know his boat, so being out on the water for more than four hours with him is stress-free, and I experience the feeling of being on the water, and I listen to the sounds of nature, and hear the fish jump when I am lucky enough to hook one and get it into the boat!
