The Bill Lishman Memorial Project (link to donate)

When we think of Bill Lishman we remember his tremendous accomplishments and the impact of his life’s work on our community and beyond. His life was rich and colourful. 

As a resident of Scugog Township (Port Perry) Ontario, Bill brought much recognition and honour to our town.  The Town and its citizens want to commemorate his life and work by erecting a memorial sculpture and we invite you to help us do that.  Your donation will help fund the design, construction, installation, and opening ceremonies of The Bill Lishman Memorial Project.

The Bill Lishman Memorial will be designed by Geordie Lishman, son of Bill Lishman. It will have three components; a sculpture as its main focal point, on a base that will feature a commemoration of Bill Lishman and his life’s work, and recognition for donors of $1,000 or more.

The Scugog Council for the Arts (Scugog Arts) is the voice and home for arts and culture in Scugog and surrounding areas. It advocates for the arts, attracting a range of co-investors such as funders, donors, members, the public, artists and volunteers. Scugog Arts works to realize the creative potential of all citizens and assists in the development of a shared and authentic cultural identity. As a hub in the community we believe that the arts are essential to the quality of life in Scugog and surrounding area, and take a leadership role in supporting a vibrant local cultural scene that embraces theatre, music, dance, visual art, craft, literary arts, and arts education. It serves as a catalyst for community and economic development, and cultural tourism.

Scugog Arts Gallery provides exhibition space, programs, resources and arts information to the community. We hold an annual juried art show and curated exhibits year round, an annual Literary Contest, music events, the Lake Scugog Studio Tour, and the Culture Days Hub each September.

We strive to maximize our contributions to the vibrancy and quality of life in our community, as we support art for arts sake.
