Recognition of our valuable member Gary Dun!


Could be confusing - Lions talking about Lions! 

This great pic was taken at The British & Irish Lions' training camp last Wednesday, when Peter, Paul and Trevor took Brett and Dave(from Wesley Care) along to meet the players. We really are appreciative that the guys took time out from their training schedule to meet Brett and Dave and pose for the photo.  July-2013

Ian Mc Kay sent this to some of the Lions Members. Excellent video that I thought would interest others. Displaying the essence of being a Lion in 55 seconds!


Just go tto the link below- there are other videos as well and good way to understand what the Lions are doing.





National Swimming Championship- Noosa Acquatic Centre

The Lions Clubs of Tewantin Noosa, Peregian, and Coory Pomona were involved in sponsoring the swimming event for the children competing. It was a great day and we have taken shots during the day to show you that it was sunny, enjoyable and very rewarding for all.

Youth of the Year Event - Tewantin Noosa RSL

Wow , once again I was astounded by the level of maturity of the youth we had.
Yes it is a lot of work that happens in the last two to three weeks before the event but that is one of the most rewarding times .
Pleasing to see Jack Hayes having another go, an on the night he was by the best as voted by our selection panel. So all congratulations to him. He and his family were suitably impressed with the new main prize from the club. I feel we will have a out going Youth Exchange very soon , possibly to the USA.
The RSL once again showed how good they are , it took one very quick meeting with Keiran to get the dinner sorted by 7.30 and desert on that table . The girls in the bar were as usual great and I noticed listening to the questions and speach's with interest.
I couldnt fault the Judges as they gave up their time without question , it took nearly all day on Monday and Tuesday night .
We had 55 in attendance , 22 from one school, 11-12 from another, 3 judges with our club with three partners making up th numbers.
I hope more club members can attend the Zone Final hosted bty Noosa Heads Lions Club at Sunshine Beach High School on the Saturday 3rd.. March staring at 2.00pm . Click on link below for photos

Cooroy Call out - Tewantin Lions Assist SES


The YOTY went well on Tuesday night, and the evenings weather some Lions got to visit Cooroy.

The Tewantin Noosa Lions Club provided support on Tuesday night to a remarkable bunch of people - The SES, and it was a pleasure to do so.

At 1645 I received a call from SES asking if we could provide hot meals and drinks for personnel working on the major storm damage in Cooroy.

By 1700, and only 4 phone calls, we had a team of 7, and Gary was already on the way to Coles to source fresh provisions

By 1830 we had the van loaded, and were on the road.

By 1945 we were starting to feed the first of the SES, and continued to do so until around 2200, by which time all had been fed, and were back in the field, and I understand close to completion of all the critical and major tasks.

Thanks go to the following, who were able to drop whatever they were doing, and make themselves immediately available,

Mike Roach,Jay Roach,Gary Dun, Bill Battilana, Peter Schofield, Helen Hatter, Gus Hatter were very pleased with the response from SES.

There may be a further need for us in the weeks to come, and SES will keep us in the loop. As you can appreciate, we are in a reactive situation, not pre-emptive position, and will not get a lot of notice.

We have left the van(cleaned) in position, which will reduce time and effort if there is another call out, and a couple of us will transport the provisions in utes/wagons. Think about volunteering for this assistance as it is very rewarding.

 Noosa News March 2012

 BUTLER STREET Roundabout to Hospital- Emergency care in action.

 A Roaming Lion (RL) went pass the Butler street roundabout and notice that they
 were pulling out the plants that surround the footpath, and of course they
hinder traffic flow, so why not pull them out. RL thought where will they
 be taking them to- another project I guess. Cutting a long story short,
 and contacting Council RL found that the contractor that was removing them and not using them on another project.

 Lions have their next planting of trees at the Hospital coming up, and RL
 thought what better way to set off Native gums and the like - plant some
 native structure grasses in amongst them. (weeds to some)
 RL went to see the contractor and asked if we could have them for local
 projects, he said yes, yes,yes, RL rang a couple of Lions people to sound out the idea and we are now the proud owner of 200 Grass plants that were  dumped at the back of the den. Well more likely 500.

 Over the last two days in between rain volunteers  (MR, JR, CC, IMK, DW, GH, PS, JS) to help place them on  ground after removing grass strip and then placing half metre of soil
around them have seen over 400 plants ready and waitng to grow with this lovely rain , and within 4 weeks they will be ready to go.Four hundred plants ($7 each)= $2,800 . RL is sure there might be some other needy people in the community that  might like some as well, and we maybe able to fix them up also.

So this is where you come in after reading all of this, if you need some structured grasses, go to the Lions Den and at the front of the eastern door of the den you will see 50 to 100 plants still left, take your pick and make yourself a flashy spot in the garden

Lions Club parking at Noosa Heads


From December 26th to January 15th our club is working with Sunshine Coast Council and other local clubs to provide a much needed day parking area in Noosa Heads. Our role is to collect parking fees and monitor the gates in the late afternoons. All involved gain a share of the fees collected.

We had a great start with some 400 cars (and so happy tourists) parked on day one. Since then there have been some more good days but unfortunately a few bad days when, due to the weather, the park has to be closed to save damage caused by parking on the grass.

Peter Hallman has kept all rostered members informed on a daily basis. Thanks to those who have helped raise funds by volunteering for this activity and bring on clear skies and gentle breezes.


Carols by Candle light.


After the cancellation of the RSL Carols evening due to rain it was very pleasing to have perfect weather for The Christian Outreach Carols on December 18th on Gympie Terrace. Not only was the weather perfect but also the venue and carol presentation. It was a perfect avenue to showcase local talent and overlooking the crowd at dusk, many of whom had mini fluoro lights waving, it was a memorable scene.

Our Lions club provided food and drinks with both vans and a drink stall kept busy and at times very busy as queues formed for chips and food. Many thanks to all volunteers for as Gus Hatter said, “With a full roster we were to give all volunteers a much needed break outside the vans during the busy evening.”

Australia Day Event.


This event will be held at Tewantin Noosa Lions Park Gympie Terrace this coming Australia Day, Thursday 26th Jan . It promises to be a special day with both serious and fun elements. There will be the formal Australian Citizen ship ceremony plus the naming of our local legend for 2012. Already plans are well under way for music performances, community and commercial stalls and of course our club food vans and drink stall.

To run such an event many volunteers are needed. Already many have volunteered to help Peter Schofield leading up to and on the day as noted in his email on 22/12/2011. Gus Hatter has called for volunteers for providing food/drinks through his email on 02/10/2012. If you have time to help on that day please contact Peter or Gus.



October 31st saw the horses gathering at the Den for our Melbourne Cup Calcutta inight.
Themes abounded with horse represented being Americain, Pinker Pinker, Lights in Heaven, Shoewan, Fox Hunter, Mider’s Touch & Shamrocker to name a few with Chris Pullin really quick at establishing the horses name.  Again the food was great & the McDonalds won the raffle
The inaugural Lions Cup with horses running Ladies Apparel ridden by Peter Schofield, Gardening Guru by Cathy Jack, Witchs’ Spell by Christine Pullin & Midnight Madness suitably dressed in navy blue crepe gathered gently under the breast & finished with grey ribbon was guest John Nichols!
Ladies Apparel was late leaving the stalls as he had problems with the pink chin strap but shot to the front and took the cup.  It was quite a leap, there was no protest registered and it was felt by the crowd that considering the jocky was caught short for a cap and had to wear a pink bra as a cap instead his win was well earned.
 The jocky’s wife Jenny was thrilled with the trophy and promised to keep it dusted and displayed in a prominent place in the Schofield home!!!
A fun night was had and thank you to Peter, Louise, Michael, Colin and Rosemay’s great ideas for the night.

Lake Cootharaba Cruise


58 Lions and guests took in the fabulous sunset over Lake Cooroibah with much laughter and chatter.  It was great to have Cooroy Pomona and Maroochy North Shore join us.

After disembarking, approximately 20 braved fish and chips, completely crashing all diets and adding to the cholesterol levels but a great way to wind down the evening.

To those who were SO worried about the rugby union, the TV was running loud and clear at the River Deck Restaurant and MV Noosa Queen was held up until the last minute!

Buckets were needed to bail out the boat after May heard the result!!

Thanks to Rosemary Luyendyk for the suggestion of the cruise and making the arrangements.
