TD Canada Trust Vermilion donated $500 to the Vermilion Lions Club on October 13.

The funds donated will go towards the toddler playground the organization is currently fundraising for. The new playground will be located where the old swimming pool used to be as the current toddler playground is over 40 years old.

“We were made aware of this fundraiser through the delivery of a poster for the Lions Prime Rib Supper and Dance which will be held on November 12. We, here at TD Vermilion, were able to access funds through the TD Play program and make a donation to the club for the playground development programs as we felt this was a great way to support our community,” said Branch Manager Marlene Beatie. “It is wonderful that the Lions Club is able to support and enhance our community through this type of program.”

On hand to accept the donation were Lions members Steve Gnida, Cliff Rolheiser, and Hayward Vaters.

The Prime Rib Supper and Dance will also be in support of STARS and other Lions projects. The supper will be held at the Vermilion Regional Centre with cocktails at 6 p.m., supper at 7 p.m., and a dance and silent auction to follow. Tickets are $70 per person or a table of eight for $500 which includes two bottles of wine per table. For tickets call Hayward Vaters (780) 872-1306.
