March 23, 2024, we partnered with Sooke Home Hardware for a “Stuff the Van” fundraiser in memory of Lion Gerry St. Laurent. All three Sooke Lions Clubs participated and turned out in full force for this special event, cooking up our tasty hot dogs and smokies. All proceeds went to the Sooke Food Bank in Lion Gerry’s name. Thanks to all those participated! We presented a plaque that is now hanging up behind the tills.
