Provide a unique "SERVICE” club membership and our primary focus is to retain existing Lions who’s Lions Clubs may have closed and would still like to remain Lions. To welcome those Lions who would like to travel for extended periods of time within and outside Australia and still remain a Lions Family Member. To provide an option for those Lions who are unable to attend a mainstream Lions Club because they work away from home, who have health problems or the nearest Lions Club is just too far away. The New Lions Club goals are in keeping with the humanitarian, community spirited, fun and service mindedness of Lions. Our members are dedicated to assisting other Lions Clubs in helping to make their communities a better place to live, work and grow.

The New Lions Club is “Service” orientated only and we are able to provide service to other Lions Clubs in the Communities that we live or travel through and well as service to other Community Organisations within these Communities. We currently have 22 members from WA, QLD, VIC, SA, NSW and New Zealand.

Lion Hazel is the Charter President of the new club and can be contacted on 0427814373. Lion Ted is the Membership Chairman and can be contacted on email address ted_pickwell@yahoo.com.au or mobile phone 0412330815 for further information.
