All of the funds raised by the NM Lions Club are returned to the community in a variety of ways, such as scholarships, Christmas boxes, financial assistance, and one of our largest recipients – Portage Atlantic.
Portage Atlantic is based in New Brunswick and is a rehabilitation centre for teens and youth who have become addicted to drugs and/or alcohol.
New Maryland Lions' most recognized event is their annual Toy & Food Drive. Held early each December, a parade of volunteers accompany Santa Claus as they wend their way through Village streets during three evenings, gathering food and toys.
Purina® Walk for Dog Guides sponsered by the NM Lions.
Dog Guides are provided at no cost to qualified applicants. Thanks to national sponsors, 100% of the funds raised from the Walk go directly to the six Dog Guide training programs. Contact Fonda French at 506 454-1278.
