The Scotia-Glenville Lions Car Raffle is soon wrapping up. The drawing is set for noon on Saturday Dec 10 at Morris Ford. All are welcome to watch the drawing, but you do not need to be present to win. A video of the drawing will be posted after the event and winners will be notified.
All profits from the raffle will go towards Lions Splash Park. To date we have raised $46,500 of the $80,000 required. You can learn more about the Splash Pad or help support it with the Buy-A-Brick campaign
It might be getting cold, but the Scotia-Glenville Lions are looking forward to next summer. The Lions are planning to build a 1000 square-foot Splash Pad in Collins Park (Scotia, NY). The Splash pad is a in-ground fountain with no standing water that provides a fun and safe place for children (and brave adults) to cool off on hot summer days.
Planning is underway with the Village and Park officials to make this a reality. As of Nov 1, roughly $41,000 of the $75,000 has been raised towards Lions Splash Pad. We need your help to make it a reality:
Our 21st annual Falling Leaves Golf Tournament was a great success. We had great weather and a great golf course, The Edison Club. Thank you to all the businesses which sponsored tee signs and donated raffle items. The money raised from this event will be used for youth and community services.
Once again, Thank you to all our sponsors for the 21st Annual Falling Leaves Golf Tournament

Collins Lake has been closed for swimming since the flooding from tropical storm Irene. The village of Scotia has tried various remedies to make the lake available for swimming again. At this point they have been told that there is nothing else that can be done. They will not be able to open the lake for swimming for years, if ever. For this reason, the Scotia-Glenville Lions are raising money to build a splash pad in Collins Park similar to the one pictured above. A kick-off announcement article is in the June 18th Schenectady Gazette on page C2. We are kicking off our campaign at the village car show on Father’s day by selling tickets for a car raffle. We will also be selling tickets in Collins Park before the July 4th fireworks celebration and before the Lion’s sponsored Freedom Park concert on July 6th. We are working with Morris Ford. The person with the winning raffle ticket will receive a $23,600 credit towards purchasing a car at Morris Ford or $15,000 cash. Tickets are $20 or 3 for $50. No more than 3000 tickets will be sold.
We are also accepting donations. There will be a circle of bricks around the splash pad. Donor’s will be acknowledged by having a brick engraved with their name.
