THE Lions Club of Onkaparinga
celebrated another successful year of
fundraising and community service at its
recent handover evening.
The past 12 months have been full of
successful fundraisers for the club including
the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party which raised
more than $2000 for research into brain,
breast and bowel cancer.
Lions members volunteered hundreds
of hours towards community projects,
including improvements to a visitor’s
information bay at Woodside North and
the restoration of a barbecue shelter at
Brockhoff Park in Balhannah.
Club activities chairman Bill Stephens said
the Australia Day breakfast was a highlight
with Lions working from 6am to cook
breakfast for the community.
“Our Lions Club members did a great job
cooking eggs, bacon, and sausages for about
350 residents, as well as supplying tea,
coffee and orange juice,” he said.
With the club preparing for its 50th
anniversary next year, outgoing club
president Lynn Howard from Charleston
said she was a strong believer in making
meetings more casual and bringing the club
into the 21st Century.
“I have tried to create these events to be
slightly less formal,” she said. We still do all
the things that are part of Lions traditions
but leaving out some of the extraneous items
which do little to enhance the evening in
“Hopefully we have cast off some of the
more formal aspects but I have been careful
not to throw the baby out with the bathwater.
“I’ve striven to make the club a more
enjoyable concept and more fun to go to
meetings, both work meetings and dinner
Woodside’s Brenton Heinrich was elected
to replace Ms Howard and said he was
looking forward to strengthening the club’s
commitment to the core ethics of Lions.
“We are probably more focussed on
fundraising these days through the shed
which allows us to support the community
in a beneficial way, but we shouldn’t lose
sight of the core ethics and purpose of
Lions,” he said.
“I think there is one article missing from our
ethics and purpose statement and that is, ‘we
should enjoy what we are doing and have
fun doing it’ as this makes for a healthy
