Gordonvale Lions Club North Queensland Australia
Gordonvale Lions Club:
We are a club that has a lot of fun.
Our dinner meetings are inexpensive and full of laughs and entertainment.
We greatly enjoy our interaction with the Lions from other clubs and the public through our fundraising activities
We have a great annual Xmas bush picnic including a cricket match and children's races at the Meerawah community hall.
We get great support from our our local school (6-8 contestants from Gordonvale High School) for the prestigous Youth of the Year Quest.
We operate our Merry Go Round at the Channel Ten sponsored Special Children's Party in November each year at the Fred Moule Pavilion Cairns. This is always a heartwarming experience for all those who participate.
Our club is growing - last year we obtained 9 new members.
If your reading this page and live in the local area - don't hesitate - contact one of the local Lions and come along to one of our meetings - YOU WILL ENJOY IT.
Fundraising and Sharing with the Local Community
Because we are a small club that provides a food catering service at a number of large events, we often ask for assistance from other community and sporting clubs in our community.
We then share the proceeds from the fundraising with these clubs. Pictured is our Past President John Donald making presentations to community members who assisted us with catering at the four finals weekends held by the Cairns District Rugby League.
