Palmerston North Middle Districts Lions Club (202d) has been proudly serving the community needs in the Manawatu for over 40 years.  We are a 50 plus member club having a real impact on the local community.  Some of our highlights are:
  • Palmerston North Food Bank Drive.

  • Relay For Life

  • Former US President Jimmy Carter visit
    A real high point in our history occurred when an invitation was issued to the former President of the United States Jimmy Carter, to address a fundraising dinner for the Lloyd Morgan Trust in Palmerston North.  The invitation was issued by the combined Lions Clubs of Middle Districts and Manawatu, and offered the inducement of a trout fishing holiday to sharpen his interest.

    Organiser of the annual Lions Market Day in the Square, held in the last Saturday of October.
     
  • Lions Food Caravan
    Our treasure, the Middle Districts Lions Food Caravan, selling hot dogs, hot chips, coffee, tea & cold drinks at 15 events in 2012, raising approx. $16,000 which is put back into the community.
