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.
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.
