Lions co-host Christmas Concert


Members of the Morrisburg & District Lions Club and the Iroquois-Matilda Lions Club are expressing their gratitude to MacEwen Petroleum of Morrisburg for their generosity in once again sponsoring the 7th South Dundas Senior Christmas Concert coming up at Matilda Hall in Dixon’s Corners on Saturday, November 24th. 

Karen Ouderkirk, Morrisburg MacEwen C Store owner, who has championed this event for several years, explains the South Dundas Seniors Concert is an opportunity to thank the community for their support in a meaningful and significant way. 

In lending her support and endorsement, Ouderkirk points out that the two Lions clubs have put together a comprehensive package for South Dundas seniors, by pooling their resources to decorate Matilda Hall, provide transportation, and ensure a joyful afternoon which includes festive Christmas music, exceptional refreshments and the fellowship of friends. And it is all free of charge to concert goers.  

The doors at Matilda Hall will open at 1:30 p.m. and the concert will run from 2-4 p.m. 

Back by popular demand are Ron Whitteker and his band, “Good Time Country” who will provide toe tapping and traditional Christmas tunes! Once the concert concludes, members of both Lions Clubs will serve refreshments while Santa Claus and friends make an appearance!  

This event is offered at no cost to the Seniors of south Dundas Township. 

Whitteker Bus Lines are again providing transportation to the concert from: Iroma Apartments, Iroquois at 12:20 p.m.; Hartford Retirement Centre, Morrisburg at 12:40 p.m.; Morris Glen, Morrisburg at 12:50 p.m.; Park Drive Villa, Williamsburg at 1:05 p.m.

For additional concert information or transportation needs seniors are asked to contact Bill MacDonald (613) 652-2307 (Iroquois-Matilda Lions Club) or Earl Wood (613) 543-3292 (Morrisburg and District Lions Club).
