A Lions northern NSW conference in Uralla has reviewed recent operations and looked to future community activities.
A spokesman said last weekend’s cabinet meeting of club members from New England, North West and the North Coast saw some 47 delegates from the various club portfolios confer on, report, plan and discuss upcoming topics to their district 210N1.
Lions District Governor Deyann McDonnell said matters on the agenda covered national disasters, including bushfires and floods.
“Recent assistance has included a 500 bale truckload of hay to Coonabarabran, and $6000 to replace damaged goods in the commercial centre of Moree,” Ms McDonnell said.
“A grant application for flood victims in the Clarence Valley was also approved by the Lions Club International Foundation.
“Cabinet Meetings hear of updated achievements and progress in a range of portfolios including leadership, membership, youth, medical/health, and marketing/public relations.
“Uralla was chosen for the weekend meeting to lift the profile of the local Lions branch club, and the benefit Lions brings to the community.”
The Lions is a community service organisation dedicated to the idea that men and women who live in a community are in the best position to know who needs help and why.
There are 1.3 million members serving in more than 200 countries and areas.
The northern District 201N1 is bound by Collarenebri, Moree, Ashford, and Iluka, down the east coast to Forster Tuncurry, across to Murrurundi, and to Premer in the West.
That represents 65 Lions clubs, three Lioness clubs, and five Leo clubs.
Uralla will host another Lions event with an extension workshop April 13-14.
