Lions is a community service organisation! People join Lions because they want to user their intellect, creativity, commitment and enthusiasm to get things done. This is where you can find out about the sorts of projects that your local Lions Club is doing. Like what you see? Get involved!
Garden Renovation Scope Swann Street Facility
We have conducted an initial clean up of the gardens in conjunction with parents and staff of the facility. Work in the gardens included removing dead materials, and pruning trees and plants. Much of the material has been mulched and returned to the flower beds.
The next phase of the project is to assist Scope in the rejuvenation of the gardens to make them accessable to the residents, for recreation and enjoyment.
Blackburn Lake Working Bees
Every six weeks or so, sometimes helped by the local scouts. Members get together to help look after one of the best community assets in our city. Blackburn Lake Sanctuary. This a local bushland park which is home to possums, sugar gliders and many species of birds.
Reading Glass Recycling
We collect use reading glasses from various opticians and drop off points.
Youth of the Year
Tools for Tradies
After the disaster of the Black Saturday bushfires in Victoria, our members looked for a way to help Shaking a tin was fine, and we did this, but we also wanted a more creative way to help the recovery. Member Rod Tunney initiated the idea that we should organise a project that would help to rebuild these stricken communities by replacing at least some of the tools that had been lost by local tradesmen so that they could then go on to help rebuild their communities.
As a district we called on Lions nationally who supplied money, part of which has been directed to replacing the Murrindindi Community bus, pictured.
