  • What are we all about?

    A HISTORY OF SERVICE IN YOUR COMMUNITY

    Gwandalan Lions Club Inc. was chartered in 1981 under the sponsorship of Swansea Lions Club with 35 members. Since 1982 when our first Lions Shed was built on the corner of Winbin Crescent and Koowong Road our primary focus has been fund raising through paper and can recycling and the running of BBQs at various district functions. As activities have expanded over the years so too have the premises to three sheds and a shipping container.

    Recycling of furniture and bric a brac takes place through our regular Saturday morning sales where a popular hot BBQ brunch has been added to the mix in recent years.

    Gwandalan Lions focus on asking ourselves the question “how can we help?” If there is a worthy cause in the area you can generally see the bright golden shirts of a group of Lions in attendance.

    Club membership varies over time and is currently over twenty. Members are proud of their ongoing achievements in supporting the community in a diverse number of ways. At the same time there is an extremely high level of club spirit and ability to enjoy ourselves.

    The Gwandalan Lions Club is supported by, and has a high standing among, the Gwandalan, Summerland Point and surrounding communities.



    MANY OF OUR ACTIVITIES ARE FUN

    While Lions membership is primarily about making a difference in our community, it is not all about work. Being a Lion means priorities are family first, career second and Lions third.

    Gwandalan Lions is a club for local ladies and gentlemen who wish to support the less fortunate members of our community.

    As well as our monthly dinner and business meetings our “unofficial clubhouse” is the Lions Shed on Saturday mornings. Members are periodically rostered to work at the Saturday Shed Garage Sale and brunch BBQ. Major events requiring a roll-up of all members include the annual Christmas Carols and quarterly Car Boot Sales. Being a Lion will bring you a high level of satisfaction and contact with members of the community.

    Lions membership is not about expecting a high commitment level from you, but rather you giving what you can and receiving enjoyment from the experience. In the process you will make the community a better place, enjoy yourself and expand your circle of friends.



    WE ARE SEEKING TO MAKE IT A BETTER WORLD TOMORROW

    Gwandalan Lions are part of a membership of 30,000 Australian Lions and more than 1.35 million worldwide members working in harmony throughout 209 countries in more than 46,000 clubs.

    As a Service Club we exist to serve the less fortunate and have been united in this vision since our founding in 1917 in Chicago. Established in Australia in 1947 at Lismore NSW we are committed to serving our local communities to make them better places to live.

    Lions Clubs are devoted to providing assistance and resources to the visually impaired and disadvantaged. We are also focused on tackling the tough issues of drug abuse, youth peer pressure and self-esteem, leadership training and care of the elderly.

    Our success is as a result of our commitment to building a brighter future for the world and our families. With each new member the organisation becomes stronger and more enlightened.

    Today's Lions are working smarter, faster and with more direction and commitment than ever before



    We are the Lions..........We Serve!
