Due to lack of support by the business and the professional men of Magrath, your Lions Club not possible to carry on Lions Club should for the benefit of the Community. . . The Magrath Lions Club was organized in 1937, nearly forty years ago, and spons­ored several Lions Clubs in Southern Albertis The Magrath and District Lions Club is/well And favourably known within the Lions World­wide Organization, and ,we are most friendly with the Clubs across the border. Your Magrath Lions Club sponsored the Swimming Pool wich is greatly enjoyed during the Summer months. The Club has provided and presented trophies to the Schools, seme 4 H Clubs and the Tennis Club. We assisted the Agricultural Society to get organized and made them a grant of $1200.00. We can accept sone credit for the new grandstand and Rodeo Park. We have provided and pack­aged Christmas candy for the schools for several years. . We are especially sorry that more of our school teachers have not had the inclina­tion to join the Lions Club. ? The response to the sale of the McIntyre steer is most disappointing, we have to go out of Magrath to sell our tickets. We are presently endeavouring to comp­lete the playground for pre-school children, even manual help from the townsfolk has been lacking. We are contributing towards the transp­ortation to Lethbridge for Retarded Children. The directors of the Lions Club feel that as support is and has been lacking for a considerable time it is impossible to carry on under these conditions. . If the Citizens of Magrath wish any or all of the projects to continue, please contact any member of the Lions Club.
