LETTERS: A call to service

Editor:

Re: Prides of White Rock to  disband, May 1.

Saddened to hear that the local Lions Club will be disbanding on June 30.

As a 40-something who grew up in White Rock, I remember attending numerous pancake breakfasts and polar bear swims as a child, where I learned what a hot toddy was.

My father was a member and it seemed as much about the social aspect not just the service.

Made me realize there are fewer service clubs around these days where face-to-face interactions are required.

Come on, business professionals of White Rock. Let’s get together and form a new service club!

You can find me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and we could crowd fund the polar bear swim and even attend virtually via Skype or FaceTime.

Stuart Libby, White Rock
