Who’s Who in 22, Community Groups: Lions
Words by Moreton Daily

Lions Clubs across the Moreton Bay Region have had a busy year co-ordinating local community projects, raising money for important causes, encouraging youth and supporting international projects.

Since the first club was formed in Australia 75 years ago, Lions has grown dramatically in size and impact, with more than 1200 clubs and 25,000 members now giving back through an array of community-based programs and initiatives.

Some Lions are on a mission to cure childhood cancer and diabetes, others are committed to assisting those affected by drought and floods and many are simply working together to help people in need in their local communities.

One thing all Lions have in common is, together, they are making a difference to the lives of many. Membership is open to all people of the community in good standing.

Clubs may either provide service or raise money for their community and 100 per cent of all money raised is directed to the project for which it is intended.

Lions sausage sizzles, and Christmas cakes and puddings are legendary and a great source of community fundraising for clubs.

Also well known, are Lion’s Youth of the Year and Youth Exchange programs.

There are also Leo clubs throughout the region, for young people keen to contribute to their communities and benefit from personal development. Head to the website for details

Lions Australia celebrated its 75 anniversary in September 2022. Since the first club was formed in Lismore in 1947, Lions Australia has grown to be Australia’s largest service club organisation.

Lions members across Australia donate millions of hours of community support each year, make their communities more liveable, invest millions of dollars in environmental projects and in developing young leaders.
