On May 6th, around twelve or so of Gabriola’s finest Lions descended on Lion Mike’s property to split an amazing amount of firewood. Not only is this “splitting party” a club favourite event, it is one of our closest social (and sometimes scary) events because we all know that the work we put in here will provide warmth for those that need it this winter season.
So, armed with many of those wonderful gas-engine-powered wood splitters and copious amounts of coffee, the Gabriola Lions Club members suddenly assumed an unheard amount of superpowers and ripped through those fallen tree limbs like a hot knife through butter. I think we actually split the most wood in that 4 hours than we did anytime before.
And all for a great cause.
