Meetings

Recruitment Drive

The Lions Club of Gerringong are currently seeking an infusion of new members. We are looking for those people who are interested in supporting their local community, both directly and indirectly through participation in this long standing service organisation, which is currently celebrating it's 25th year in Gerringong. We are part of Lions Clubs International, which is the world's largest service club organisation. The 1.7 million members in 190 countries around the world are dedicated to bettering the quality of life for the handicapped, the poor, the sick, the aged and those in need. The motto of Lions Clubs International is “WE SERVE,” and Lions live this motto with enthusiasm, friendship and good fellowship.

Service with Lions is more than just sausage sizzles and raffle tickets.

In the past 2018/2019 term, some of the achievements and successful projects resulted in over $40,000 disbursed to deserving causes that the Lions Club support. Notable amongst the activities this past term was a bus visit by Lions members to Condobolin for drought assistance to that community, by supporting local business and distributing financial aid. Another such similar trip is currently in the pipeline. Also, the annual Lions Motorfest car show was a great draw card to the Gerringong community area, and our Return and Earn program is proving to be a most viable asset to the Club.

Lions run the monthly free IGA BBQ, plus BBQs carried out for Australia Day, local schools, Kiama Municipal Council to name a few, along with other fundraising activities such as the 2019 Lions 'Sports Stars of Gerringong' calendar project, Maintenance of the grounds at Boat Harbour and the Lions Whale Watching Platform continues to be ongoing, as were the raffles and other activities including regular assistance setting up the Quilt shows at Berry and Gerringong, and manning the gates at the Kiama Sevens.
