Magrath, AB So sorry to hear of the electrical fire (early morning of Tue 30th Jan) at the Magrath's Cafe. Owners Siwan and Nima and family are all OK, but the building itself will likely be closed down for some time yet. We may need to arrange alternate location for our meetings in meantime.
Magrath Lions will be meeting in Lethbridge at Earls on Wed 20 Dec 2017 for our December meeting! See you all there ..
FYI - C2 District Governor Cathy Anderson's December 2017 Newsletter is posted on the District C2 website ..
Magrath, AB - the Magrath Lions cutoff for donations to Operation Christmas Child this year was Thu 16 Nov 2017 at 6pm .. we ended up with 65 completed boxes this year. Here they are packaged up waiting for pickup at Noon on Fri.
