A bit about the Brisbane Lions Club:
Community Service and Engagement Opportunities are the driving force for our Lions Club which was founded in 1948. The club has been steadily serving the Brisbane Community with tried and true projects ranging from Vision Care for the youth, adults and seniors, and free health and wellness fairs including the annual flu shot clinics. The Brisbane Lions with your help support; youth sports teams such as AYSO and our own Brisbane Pirates Baseball Team, the Annual Pumpkin Patch where the pumpkins are free, donations to the Brisbane Elementary School and the Scholarships program for those seeking higher education, Social events such as the Senior Holiday Luncheon and the Star Awards Program, the BBQ for the Lagoon Clean Up and on Christmas morning the Lions bring Santa and gifts to every home in Brisbane.
The Lions Club Motto is “We Serve” One Hundred percent of donations raised by the Lions Club support and make possible our community service programs.
Today there are 67 members of the Brisbane Lions Club. They are loving, service-minded men and women who work to serve the Brisbane Community and constantly look to refresh and expand our service projects by; selling Christmas trees, holding BBQs, including the Hot Dogs at the Concerts in the Park. For the last two years, the club has hosted the annual DJ Dance Party in the Park, which has been a great success. This year the annual Flu Clinic will be expanded to include Vision Screening and Diabetes Awareness info. October 28th will be the 4th Annual Fun Run, that raises money for Higher Education Scholarships.
