A TIP FOR THE MAPLE LEAFS: With the new president Brendan Shanahan
to change "culture" of the Toronto Maple Leafs, here's an easy fix for the Leafs------hire players who would rather play hockey
than golf! The only exception right now is Phil Kessel who is a fisherman and is fishing in Florida (his home) at the present

Our Lion’s Club & the Rotary Club have decided to end our annual event;
"Breakfast with Santa" and move on to the next "stage". Since the inception of this event in 1999, we have donated proceeds
of $72,551.58 to the Kid's Wish Foundation.
We will likely donate the next event we agree on to the Clifford Food Bank/Meals
Lions, I hope all of you read the articles in our LION magazine. There is so much info
in each issue. In the Jan/Feb. edition, read about the eradication of onchocerciasis (river blindness) in Cameroon.
Thanks to the LCIF partnership with the Carter Centre... After Jimmy Carter ended
his USA presidency, he formed this Centre.
Millions have been protected from infection with Trachoma & River Blindness.

We missed sponsoring our annual big
fundraiser in December, Breakfast with Santa. From 1999 to 2012 the proceeds
from this event were $72,551.58, all going to the Ontario Children’s
Wish Foundation. Our top year was 2004, when we realized $9,390 to the Assoc..
This past December Jim Dennie, owner of the
Redwood Restaurant, elected the proceeds to go to the Shrine Kids Hospitals
in the USA and Canada. They realized $2,800. Local members of the Pal Mocha
Shrine Clubs were involved in the Breakfast with Santa.
Our Clifford Lions Membership Display
board is now complete. President Fay and I displayed the board at our Zone
7 Advisory meeting held in Mildmay. Z.C. Elaine requested me to explain each project
on our board to all the Zone 7 Clubs in attendance.
In this issue I've included a pic and write up of our Annual "Bowling
for Kid's Sake", sponsored by the Big Brothers & Sisters Assoc. on Sunday
Feb. 9th. Up to the end of Sunday, $14,021 so far has been collected by 40
teams with 191 Bowlers participating. Thanks to all who participated.
Our sympathy goes out to Lion Allan and his
family on the passing of Lion Allan's father "Wilf". In lieu of flowers we
elected to make a donation to LFC "Dog Guides" in memory of Mr. Manning.
Congrats go out to Lion Vaughn Braby, a former
member of this club, on receiving a Melvin Jones Award. He is a member of
the Kitchener Lions Club and also was a next door neighbour of Sheila and
Hope all the Lions are enjoying the
Olympics. We're doing OK. But where are all the big "Gun's" on our Team Canada
Men's Hockey team ? (Like Crosby, Toews and other NHL great scorers.) Our best
player so far is a defence man, Drew Doughty, who's scored 4 goals in 3 games. Not dressing
last year’s scoring champion Martin St.Louis and last year’s Noris Trophy winner P.K. Subban, who's game is all about offence, just doesn't seem right.
Oh, this is a Lions Newsletter........better close. See you in March. Once again…Happy 35th Anniversary to our Great

had received from Ivan had "Happy, Happy, Happy" in them, that being the reason for the "gift" book.
One statistic Lion Hank added, was that when 10 people are asked to join a Lions Club, one will accept !!
| WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS
| AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR
FROM THE DESK OF IVYHO…
Is everyone almost ready for the Big Guy in Red?
It’s Ho Ho time of the year when we all look forward to being with our families for the Christmas
Our annual Lion’s Christmas dinner was held at Greenley’s Restaurant. An excellent turkey buffet with all the trimmings was greatly
enjoyed by all. The restaurant was decorated superbly for Christmas. Everyone enjoyed a before dinner “Tea” @ Lion Ivan & Sheila’s before venturing over for dinner.
The only “down side” of this year’s Christmas was not hosting our annual “Breakfast with
Santa”. This has always been the largest fundraiser for both our Lion’s Club and Clifford’s Rotary Club each year. I’m sure the “Children’s
Wish Foundation” will greatly miss the proceeds from this event. Rumour has it that we “might” be
back on board in 2014 ???
Let’s not forget to purchase a ticket for the Toronto Maple Leafs Getaway weekend for the Leafs vs. Red Wings game Sat. March 29th/14 @ the ACC. Tickets
are $10 each.
coming up on Feb 9th is the annual Big Brothers, Big Sisters “Bowl for Kid’s Sake” Our grandson Zak is more than eager to bowl with us this year
to help the cause.
What a great celebration held for Nelson Mandela’s life in South Africa. The pouring rain kept away a few,
but still thousands attended. One African said of the rain: “The heavens are crying”. Mandela led South Africa away from Apartheid as the 1st
black African President. U.S.
Obama, who was very personally inspired by the life of Mr. Mandela, had some “strong” messages for world leaders and challenged them to ensure
“that they advanced the ideals
that Mr. Mandela lived by”. Lions, I believe all of us could contribute more to our community and the world, if we lived by his ideals.
For some of our members who have been unable to attend meetings since September, I have enclosed in this Bulletin a brief summary of some of
our activities/projects. I hope it will help bring you up to date with the happenings in our club.
16th/14 we look forward to the official visit of our 1st VG Hank Van Morssel and his presentation. Lion Ron Manto who was
once a member of our club, will be coming with Lion Hank.
From Sheila and I, wishing all the Lions and their families a very Merry Christmas and the very best for 2014…

Loving Individuals Offering Needed Service. I think this is an
excellent version of the word LIONS.
With our 4 cedars wrapped in burlap (thanks to Sheila), our
Annual Kids Pumpkin Carving contest and Remembrance Day wreath laid, it feels we are fast approaching winter and the Holiday season. Our participants for the pumpkin carving contest were down this year, but the snow blizzard on Sat. morning did not help. Thanks go out to Bonnie Beirnes who braved the weather
to drive from Gowanstown to be this year’s judge.

to Bonnie Whitehead for her coverage of the event in 3 of the local
Hope to see you all at our December 5th Lions Christmas dinner @ Greenley’s. Country style meal will be served.
At the time of printing, our
Breakfast with Santa, sponsored
for years by both Clifford Lions and Rotary Club, has been changed
by Redwood’s owner Jim. He has elected to have the Shriners run
this event. This decision, without our clubs being consulted, has made many in the community very upset. Through Facebook and e-mails I’ve received, many state they will never “darken” his door again. It’s a shame this great event will not be able to make a donation to the Children’s Wish Foundation this year. Hopefully, a solution will be found, not likely for this year at this late date, but perhaps by next year.

Pumpkin Carving Contest
The frost was on the pumpkins this Saturday, October 26th at
the Clifford Firehall, which may have been the explanation for a lower turnout. But thanks to Chayse Leith, Hunter Leith,
Zak Leith, Ella Wiltshire, Shondra Wood and Michaela Casemore, the Clifford and District Lions Annual Pumpkin Carving
Contest carried on at 10:00 a.m.
Judge Bonnie Beirnes was kind enough to drive all the way in from Gowanstown
to perform the judging duties which resulted in Ella taking the first prize with Zak and Michaela receiving the 2nd and
3rd prizes respectively. Everyone else received a toonie for a great job.
Thanks to Larry Newton
of the Clifford Fire Fighters for opening up the fire hall and handing out Clifford Firefighter Frisbees to all the kids.

Support for ball park project on display at community showcase
CLIFFORD - There was a tremendous show of support for the Community Event Showcase
hosted by the Clifford Recreation Association (CRA) recently at the Community Hall here.
A good turnout of local residents attended to see what clubs, groups and organizations
exist within the community and beyond.
There was a chance to ask about Big Sisters Big Brothers, the Merry Makers, Seniors
Centre for Excellence, food bank, horticultural society, historical society, trails committee, geocaching, and the Town of
Minto. All three churches - Knox United, St. John’s Lutheran and the Community Church - had displays.
The event also provided an opportunity to sign up for curling, hockey, broomball,
figure skating, dance, nursery school, or women’s hockey.
Many of the cornerstone sponsors - Larry Grummett Insurance, Weber Contracting,
W.C. Smith Wholesale, RBC Royal Bank of Clifford, Wightman Telecom, Redwood Restaurant and the Clifford Rotary Club - set
up displays as well. The Clifford Rotary Club could be seen in action through a video presentation.
The CRA offered a free dinner at the showcase. CRA president Randy Ruetz praised
the groups who joined forces to raise money for the ball diamond project.
They decided to sponsor a walking trail, dugouts, outfield fencing, and lights
for the ball park with a price tag of $72,000. They wanted to ensure the best for the residents, to ensure quality and committment
and that the Clifford Lions, who committed time, talent and resources to the former diamond,
will ensure their custom-built fountain and food booth will have a home at the new diamond.
Ruetz offered appreciation to the cornerstone sponsors, whose financial support
provided grants to boost the useage of the arena and sporting facilities.
He expressed appreciation to the CRA board and all the volunteers who apply for
grants and work off their donations by scheduling a shift or two at the arena food booth.
Ruetz was especially appreciative of the big and bold cheque presentations that
were sported totals of $500 to $20,000 - totalling $48,630.
Brad Richardson, representing the former Clifford Recreation Committee and the
new CRA, presented two cheques; Lorne Underwood - Clifford Curling Club; Dan Ellis - Clifford Volunteer Firefighters; Fay Binkley - Clifford Lions Club; Reg Grice - Grein’s Fastball Club; and Phil Baumgarten
- Clifford Rotary Club.
Along with Ruetz, the CRA board includes Karen Dowler, Cindy Reading, Lorne Underwood,
Brad Richardson, Bill Raynard, Perry Webber, Kayle Hummell, Al Carr, Hope Robertson, and past president Paul Wightman.
PDG Ivan Campbell Receives Award . When the Pike
Lake Minto Lions Club was formed, they were fortunate to have PDG Ivan Campbell as their Guiding Lion from the sponsoring
Clifford Lions Club.
PDG Ivan is a Certified Guiding
Lion and by attending all the club’s meetings and filing reports as to their success for a two year period, he was awarded
with a Pres-idential Certified Guiding Lion Award by IPDG Charles Liddle on July 7. Congratulations Lion Ivan.

Hard to believe we’re coming near the end of another Lion’s
year. Where does the time go ? It has been a very good year for us
and although we are a small club , we have made many donations to charitable causes,
but we must continue to bring in new members, so we can do larger fundraisers.
When was the last time you asked someone to become a Lion member ??
We’re sorry to hear that President
Fay’s fiancé’ Joe is hospitalized at St Michael’s Hospital in Toronto. We all wish him a speedy recovery. Lion Fay wanted us to go ahead with our year end BBQ and meeting as
she does not know when she could be with us, as she is spending most
of her time at the hospital with Joe.
We hope to see you all out to our BBQ
on Thursday June 20th @ Lion

I feel at this time a few thanks should go out to some of our

Sheila Campbell for all her work cleaning up, etc. at our Lions Friendship Arch and Sheila Hill for all her time and effort keeping our Clifford & District Website updated, Lions Garry &

Al Carr from the Town of Minto contacted
me re: where we would like our Lions Club Water Fountain relocated.
We have spoke of several options, so I would like further opinions from the Club members. Al wondered if we would consider it to be located at the entrance to the new Park, where the washrooms
will be built. We need to locate it by a water source !! .Next
