Pledge fulfilled

Dear Editor:

Belwood Lions are pleased to announce the completion of the Pike Derby donation of a vital signs monitor for the endoscopy department of Groves hospital. 

During the May 28 and 29 Pike Derby and Walleye Tournament, Belwood Lions pledged $10,000 over two years for the purchase of the machine. 

With the support of the Wellington Advertiser and our other derby sponsors, the success of the derby and the result of our members actively collecting and recycling beer and wine bottles, Belwood Lions have comfortably raised money to allow us to pursue all of our charity donation objectives. 

As such, we have decided to pay our two-year pledge in full, and now look forward to working with Groves to select another project which will benefit our community at large. 

Thank you publisher Dave Adsett for your ongoing support and we hope that you will consider us once again for our 2023 derby on May 27 and 28.

Gordon Hufnagel,
Pike Derby & Walleye Tournament, Belwood & District Lions
