Sooke Lions took on the job of building some pedestrian bridges over the creek

Sooke Lions Club gets things done

Lions volunteer to build bridges at Charters Creek

A couple of members of the Sooke Lions Club have been long term volunteers at the Charaters River Salmon Interpretive Centre located on Sooke River Road in  Sooke.

Recently, one of them had a bad accident. Even though he was in hospital, he was worried that one of the projects he was working on would not be completed.

Another Lion learned of his worries and put out the call for his fellow Lions to offer assistance.

A work party was formed and on Sept 9, eight Lions, under the supervision of Wally Vowles built two, 20- meter long pedestrian bridges. It is a well known fact that Lions work quickly and both bridges were finished within five hours.

These bridges were built over streams allowing visitors to the centre a close up view of the fish in the stream.

This is only one of the many projects the Sooke Lions Club performs throughout the year.

I am still surprised that when I mention Lions, some people have no idea what we actually do or who we are.
