Years ago, the Scarborough Cedarbrae Lions Club merged with the Golden Mile Lions Club to form the Scarborough Cedarbrae – Golden Mile Lions Club.
Lions Clubs International granted our charter on February 22, 1965.
Until a few years ago, SCGM ran an annual golf tournament fundraiser in conjunction with Toronto Police Service’s TAVIS group. More recently, we have sold Lions Christmas Cakes as a fundraising project. We began work with the City of Toronto on a new raffle initiative in autumn, 2017.
The club has directed its support to many youth-oriented concerns. Among others, we traditionally support District A711’s Pee Wee Baseball tournament at the Canadian National Exhibition, and our district Effective Speaking contest for English and French speaking kids in grades 4 to 12.
Over the years, SCGM membership has waxed and waned. Right now, we need new energy. If you are interested in the Lions organization, if you think being part of the world’s largest humanitarian organization might be worthwhile, if you want to meet new people, and matter in your community… let’s talk.
Our Leo Club (on hiatus)
SCGM also sponsors the Scarborough Kingsway Leo Club. Though Leo membership is dormant, the charter remains. SCGM remains hopeful that the Leo club will emerge refreshed and renewed.
