Lions celebrate 60 years of service
THE Cairns Barrier Reef Lions Club celebrated 60 years of service to the community at the Sheridan Hotel on Saturday, June 12.
Attendees on the night included the Lions District Governor Audrey Kenny, second Vice District Governor Michael Maclaren, and a number of past district governors, club presidents, club Lions, special guests and the president of Cairns Rotary Club, Mark Dodge.
The guests were warmly welcomed by Club President Rachel Davey.
A topic of discussion on the night was the declining membership of service clubs and the urgent need for people of all ages, men and women, to volunteer to help service clubs serve the community.
There are six Lions clubs currently in Cairns. Cairns Barrier Reef Lions Club meet on the second and fourth Tuesday monthly. Lions Clubs fulfill an essential role in the community and prospective members can contact Garry Davey on 0419 944907 for information regarding meetings and how to get involved.
