Merry go Round
Currently, we conduct all these projects with just 13 active members. We are grateful to those members and the many people from the community that are willing to volunteer when we run an event. A number of our major activities would not happen without community assistance. And we always need at least one Lions member to be in attendance at events to meet our insurance obligations.
It is also very rewarding to know that most of the money raised through the projects and programs remains in the community by being donated back through various organisations such as Kaniva Cancer Council Unit, Kaniva Hospital, Kaniva Men’s Shed, Kaniva Community HUB and the Kaniva P12 College. Becoming a Lion involves:
Compassion and a wish to help others
Commitment to attend events as well as the social and business meetings
Companionship through the club and community involvement
