Sadie Dauphney, a member of the Truro & District Lions Club, offers some treats to Brenda Billard during the club’s open house on Saturday. Visitors were able to view the renovations done to the hall and learn about the volunteer work the club does in the community.
Visitors were able to see the new look of the facility and learn about the work being done by the club.
"We completely renovated the hall," said Susan Bartlett, membership chairwoman. "The kitchen and washrooms were gutted and everything was painted. New flooring was added. The hall holds approximately 110 people and there is a downstairs level for dancing and a small stage for a band or DJ."
A grant was obtained for the renovations.
The Lions assist with the Dog Guide program, Northwood Intouch, blood collection, Adopt-a-Highway (with the 2nd Truro Venturers and Scouts), the food bank and more. There has been a club in Truro since 1946 and it has been operating out of the Prince Street building since 1971.
"We have 28 members now and welcome new members," said Bartlett. "People can be involved in whatever programs interest them."
