Each year, the Shelburne & District Lions Club raise money for the community. Funds raised go back into the community and this year a hand crafted rocking horse was displayed at the Shelburne’s John’s No Frills and Foodland during the Christmas season as a Fundraising draw.
“The Shelburne Lions Christmas Rocking Horse draw came to a close and a lucky winner was drawn on December 19, 2018 at the Dufferin Oaks Auditorium. This magnificent piece of functional furniture was won by Grant Symons, who has since collected his prize. A big thanks to all who took a chance on winning this prize, ” commented Martin Mirander, Treasurer and Effective Speaking Chair for the Shelburne Lion’s Club adding,”Mr. Jim Chaney is the architect builder of the hobby horse. We had two places where we sold tickets, Foodland and John’s No Frills. The draw was made at the Dufferin Oaks during the December 19th meeting. The funds go to the following community projects, The Shepherd Cupboard, Meals on Wheels, and to the Shelburne Residence.”
