Lions club members from across Alberta converged on Sylvan Lake Saturday to take part in the annual Lions Cavalcade for Diabetes Awareness.
They came from Pigeon Lake, South Edmonton, Vegreville, Lethbridge, Calgary, Camrose, Beaverlodge, St. Albert and other points.
After conducting the annual meeting of the organization and listening to a presentation by Canadian Diabetes Association, Lions members decked their vehicles with logos, lions of every shape and size, and other decorations.
Then they paraded through the streets of Sylvan Lake on their quest to raise awareness about diabetes.
Dennis Stevenson, chairman of the committee, said the organization annually raises $40,000-$60,000 for the Canadian Diabetes Association — part of which funds the Travelling Diabetes Resource program which distributes information and makes presentations.
The cavalcade is an annual event that takes place in a different community. It’s in Vegreville next year.
