Carterton

Our Lions Club prides itself on its Food Caravan and the profit we make from the sales of our famous Hot Dogs and Chips is all returned to the community. We also provide around 80 loads of Firewood to the Elderly in Autumn.

 

What we do

  • We enjoy ourselves
  • We carry out ‘hands-on’ projects in our community and with other Lions clubs.
  • We raise funds for, and give physical assistance to, charitable projects.
  • We organise community events to improve our sense of community.
  • We assist the blind, the elderly and our youth.
  • We assist in times of emergency.
  • We visit other clubs, have social outings.

What we volunteer

  • We share an evening meal and meeting on alternate Wednesdays twice a month, while hearing interesting guest speakers.
  • We become involved on a committee to help organize the activities of the Club.
  • We work on projects as our home and work commitments allow.

When we meet

  • We meet on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month for a dinner meeting.
  • At the Club Carterton, Broadway Ave, Carterton
  • Commencing 6 pm for friendship, a meal at 6.30 followed by a guest speaker, then some general business, closing soon after 8-8.30 pm
  • A few times each year we have a social evening at the movies, a café, attending a show along with various trips away.

What it costs

  • Membership of most organisations has a cost.
  • Currently our annual dues are about the equivalent of a cup of coffee a week.
  • And there is an optional reasonably priced meal at each Club meeting attended.
  • Lions are proud of the fact that all funds raised in the community are returned to the community.

What we get in return

  • The close friendship of club members and their families.
  • The ability to assist those less fortunate than yourself.
  • The satisfaction of being able to achieve service we could not achieve on our own.
  • Fun and enjoyment from meeting and working alongside like-minded people.
  • A range of low cost self development opportunities.
  • As with any organisation, the friendships, satisfaction and self development do depend on the amount we are prepared to be involved.
