Keeping Cool Thanks to Tsawwassen Boundary Bay Lions Club

July 20, 2022

In keeping with its commitment to support community-based projects, the Tsawwassen Boundary Bay Lions Club donated 50 fans to KinVillage to help older persons stay cool during the summer heat.

As stated by Marg Kennett, a tenant at KinVillage: “Fans help provide relief from the extreme summer heat.  Donating fans is a simple idea that might just start a movement to engage our community in what could be one of the largest efforts of its kind and helps to boost the year-round mission of KinVillage.”

Peter Thesiger, President, Tsawwassen Boundary Bay Lions Club: “In keeping with our club’s objectives of supporting those in our community who need assistance, and after receiving Marg Kennett’s request, our club unanimously voted to provide the funds for fans. Several of our members noted that as we age, our inability to adequately respond to summer heat can become a serious problem. Our gift has provided free fans to 50 older persons living at KinVillage who don’t have personal air conditioning.”

Dan Levitt, CEO of KinVillage stated: “We look forward to continuing to strengthen the connection between our partners like the Tsawwassen Boundary Bay Lions Club and KinVillage, as together we create a more age friendly city.  As KinVillage looks ahead to future expansion, the importance of community connections will be critical to support our ageing society providing quality healthcare, housing and supports to combat social isolation and loneliness, and to encourage independence and choice.”
