Description : In this, its 57th year of community service, the Bradford Lions Club still abides by the Lions International slogan, "We Serve." This year - 1994 - marks the 40th anniversary of Hurricane Hazel, which hit the Holland Marsh and the Town of Bradford. Nineteen fifty-four was also an important year for the Bradford Lions. Forty years ago, the Lions held their Mammoth Car Draw, the first prize being a Cadillac Sedan DeVille. The price of the Caddie at that time was around $5,000. Tickets cost $25, and the winner was William Mulholland of Toronto. This year, the Cadillac will cost approximately $45,000. There will also be about $20,000 in cash given away in the elimination draw. Only 1,700 tickets are sold at $75 each. You could be a winner, if you have a ticket! They are available from any member of the Bradford Lions Club. Also back in 1954, the Town of Bradford was in the process of building a new
Community Centre, and the Lions Club donated $15,000 towards the Centre. Forty years later, the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury will be making major alterations to the
Community Centre. The Bradford Lions Club has already pledged $140,000 towards this project. This year, and in conjunction with the Car Draw Week, the Bradford Lions and Bond Head Lions Clubs will be holding a Monster Bingo on Wednesday, September 7th at 7 p.m. - in the newly renovated
Community Centre, which is slated to be opened by the end of August. Your purchase of tickets to either of these events would be greatly appreciated.
