Lions District 201V5

Victoria, Australia

Welcome to Lions District 201V5 – NAVIGATING TOWARDS THE FUTURE

In Australia, and around most of the World, Lions Clubs have contributed so much towards community well-being and success and made marvellous impacts on the lives of so many individuals. Now, in 2018, we are finding our communities are more than ever in need of Lions Clubs and other support groups.

Lions Clubs International turned a remarkable 100 years young in 2017, last year’s theme of ‘We Serve’ continues to highlight our determination to ensure that Lions Clubs remain a relevant, viable, and valued part of the Australian fabric for the next 100 years. 

WHERE THERE'S A NEED THERE'S A LION . . . . . . what a great catch phrase! We encourage all Lions to continue your great work and, in particular, to continue enabling us to achieve this important goal of serving where there is a need. This year, we'll be concentrating on six main project areas of:

Vision

Hunger

Environment

Diabetes

Paediatric Cancer

In addition to these service areas, in District 201v5, we will also be focusing on the provision of:

Humanitarian Aid and Support

to our local communities, especially our struggling farmers and their families. So don’t miss your chance to be a part of this historic service year—start planning your support events today!

We are the Lions


Lions Australia has a proud history of achievement and helping the neediest in our communities. We must remember that these people are struggling not because of anything they have done, but through circumstance beyond their control. They need our help and I hope that we will continue to provide that help as we have done for the past 101 years. 

Think about disasters like Cyclone Tracy, the Black Saturday bushfires, New Zealand earthquake and the Queensland floods - Lions were there helping in practical ways. Today, many of the disasters are not as dramatic as those listed above. They are more localised and focus on families – both rural and metropolitan – who are struggling with basic daily requirements of food, clothing and heating.

Let us tell them loudly and clearly, we understand and we care and we are here to help!   

In addition  to helping those in immediate need, also think the advances in medical research and achievements such as the Bionic ear, the Cervical Cancer vaccine (Gardisil), and Fred Hollows to name a few.  Lions were there right from the early days - funding research and health strategies long before they became household names.  

Think too, about the local parks, monuments, sporting centres and facilities built by your Lions Clubs; built by people who saw a need and got down to the job of meeting that need, with their ideas, skills and labour.

Lions have been a part of the Australian community since 1947, helping to serve the people without promise or want of reward, the silent workers, working for the greater good.

Let us continue to serve and alleviate suffering in our communities.
