Lot more to Lions than we all think

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - LIFE -

THOU­SANDS of Aus­tralia’s most ded­i­cated and hard-work­ing vol­un­teers will be on deck to let you know more about what Lions Aus­tralia does on Satur­day March 2.

Af­ter more than a cen­tury of help­ing oth­ers, the role as a ser­vice club is be­com­ing in­creas­ingly im­por­tant.

It may be pro­vid­ing emer­gency relief dur­ing nat­u­ral dis­as­ters or sup­port­ing farm­ing com­mu­ni­ties dur­ing drought, sup­port­ing crit­i­cal med­i­cal re­search into child­hood can­cers and di­a­betes, or work­ing on lo­cal en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­grams – the work of all the mem­bers is val­ued and crit­i­cal.

The Lions hope you’ll take the op­por­tu­nity to join them at one of the many events that will be held across Aus­tralia, talk to a Lion and ask them why they de­cided to give some of their time and ef­fort to help oth­ers.

Mem­bers of the Lions Club of Lake Cur­rimundi Kawana will be avail­able at the new Birtinya Shop­ping Cen­tre, The Av­enue, Birtinya to talk about the club and the work they do to sup­port the lo­cal community and around Aus­tralia.

Club pres­i­dent Stan Har­till-Law said that the club’s bound­ary goes from the north side of Cur­rimundi Lake in the south tak­ing in all sub­urbs along Nick­lin Way to the bridge over the Mooloolah River.

“We would re­ally like to talk to peo­ple liv­ing in th­ese grow­ing sub­urbs about Lions and how be­com­ing a mem­ber of the largest ser­vice or­gan­i­sa­tion in the world can help their community.”

Club mem­bers meet at the Kawana Surf Club, 99 Pa­cific Blvd, Bud­dina, on the sec­ond and fourth Mon­day of each month com­menc­ing at 6.30pm.

For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact Stan-Har­till Law on 0407 378 525 or Norm Jensen on 0404 984 455.
