“We have always supported the Fonthill Lions. Each year, prior to the pandemic, we were the Grand Prize Sponsor for the Lions annual SLIDERFEST community event.  Since SLIDERFEST has been cancelled two years in a row due to COVID safety protocols, we wanted to still support the Lions efforts to raise money for community service.  We are happy to be a part of this latest effort,” said Mike Konderka, President of Enviro-Niagara Hearth & BBQ.

“It is wonderful that so many people have continued to support our service club during these challenging times,” says Steven Pellerin, President of the Fonthill Lions Club, “We are extremely grateful for the ongoing community support.”

Pleasantview Funeral Home is also a proud supporter of the Fonthill Lions fund-raising efforts.
