New Lions Clubs in the rapidly growing areas of Warralily, Armstrong Creek, Haymont Glen Lee, Harriot and Anchoridge are being proposed.

Lions Clubs continue to form new sporting and other social clubs for their respective communities.

V2 zone coordinator Grant Hull said there are a limited number of sports grounds but few facilities to support the various groups that have formed or are forming.

“We propose to open two, possibly three, Lions clubs to assist in the areas mentioned above to help those in genuine need,” he said.

“Lions have a wealth of knowledge in forming new clubs and helping communities with very many needs. They have the backing and support of Lions Clubs international that provides guidance and education to Lions Club members to assist them help various community groups with various challenges.”

Mr Hull said the proposed new Lions Clubs would receive the support and assistance from nearby Lions Clubs, including training, guidance in club formation and the loan of different equipment needs until they are able to acquire their own gear.

Nearby clubs would also provide human resources to the new clubs until they gain enough new members and beyond, to look after their own needs, Mr Hull said.

“Lions are changing rapidly, as it should be, to cater for our changing world and Environment,” he said.

“There are some expectations of members but not nearly as many as there once was.

Lions today is an exciting and vibrant organisation, ready and willing to help communities, groups and individuals in genuine need.

“Most clubs have social get-togethers as well as conducting dinner and business meetings. Lions clubs members have a great deal of fun and share an enormous amount of pride whilst assisting those in need.”
