ALZHEIMERS MORNING TEA FUNDRAISER

 

A group of Katikati Lions ladies enjoyed a morning tea fundraiser on Wednesday 15th March, when our guest speaker talked of her experiences with her partner suffering from this debilitating disease. A raffle raised $300 for the local Alzheimers Association. Such a lovely morning of camaraderie and information.  

Thanks to Kay and Ian for opening their home for us once again! 

 

Katikati

Mural town of the Bay of Plenty

 

 

Katikati is a town with a population of around 4,200, situated approximately a  30 minute drive from Tauranga City.  With people coming from far and wide to enjoy the rural atmosphere and friendly way of life in this flourishing area, Katikati is enjoying a steady rate of growth. 

The newly developed Summerset by the Sea Retirement Village is also bringing with it many new residents to swell the growing population.

The Lions Club of Katikati has served the community of Katikati and its local rural area for 45 years. It is a very busy Club with many and varied activities and projects,  providing something for everyone in the club to become involved with.   The Lions Motto “We Serve” is very evident in this town,  with the Club enjoying a high profile in the Community.    Projects range from assisting with pest eradication in the Kaimai Forest Park to involvement in the annual Avocado Food & Wine Festival,  and the Annual Steptoe Auction and Garage Sale which are both very popular events.

 

 

 

 

 

Each October to commemorate World Service Day,  the Lions Cub of Katikati hosts the Annual Lone Diners Dinner for locals who live alone.  Around 160 people are catered for who enjoy  some form of light entertainment.   (See the EVENTS PAGE for details).

       

The Lions Club of Katikati has  grown to become one of the largest and strongest Clubs in District 202L.  The Club has three of its original Charter Members still very active and has also developed a very strong women’s membership.   Members partners are recognised and valued for their support and are always welcomed at Club projects and activities, including a strong social programme. 

Membership continues to grow, bringing fresh faces and new ideas to continue to develop new and innovative ways of doing things with and for our community.    Katikati Lions are all justifiably proud of their Club’s accomplishments and are optimistically looking to the future.
