On Saturday, July 12, 2014, the North Surrey Lions were involved in building a playground at Hjorth Road Elementary School. The Playground was organized by KaBOOM! (who we worked with in 2013) and again sponsored by Foresters. The community partner was Surrey Schools. Hjorth Road PAC, Surrey Rotary and North Surrey Lions rounded out the planning committee.
Over 250 volunteers helped with the event and special acknowledgement goes to those companies that sponsored the Lions Food Services including Prospera Credit Union, Superstore, Costco, McDonalds, Starbucks, IGA, City of Surrey, Papa John’s and Newton High Quality Meats. A special thanks goes to North Surrey Lions Club member and MP for Surrey North, Jasbir Sandhu, who not only supplied the lunch but the volunteers who helped served it.
