In 1976, the Lions sponsored the Bayfield Lioness Club which multiplied the good works carried on in Bayfield. Many of the Lionesses were spouses of Lions and women who had worked hard to support the Lions Club efforts over the years.
By forming their own club, they dedicated their efforts to other important community projects such as the building of the bandstand in Clan Gregor Square, benches and garbage bins on Main Street. The Lioness contributed more than $30,000 to the construction of the Community Centre.
In a community that had a population of less than 500 people, there were over 60 Lions and Lioness dedicated to making Bayfield and the world a better place. An incredible portion of the population!
