We are ordinary people doing extraordinary things but in a collective and always a fun way. Here are three examples: locally we provided a Hearing Dog for a hearing-impaired lady and over a number of years, we helped Sunnybank-Salisbury Meals on Wheels to get on their feet by using our kitchen; and internationally Lions Sight First (an international project but with our contribution and those of many other clubs worldwide) was able to fund several million cataract surgeries in developing countries.
We take pride in these achievements but what else would you expect from a 'pryde of Lions'!

We are the Lions
Chartered as a Lions Club 9th April 1963, Sunnybank has fluctuated in membership from 60 to 30. Currently we have 43 members, women and men including two Charter members. Our Lions Community Hall was built in 1971with our own labour when the members a that time were mostly much younger. This building continues to this day under our stewardship to be a very valuable community resource.
In 2013 we will be 50 years young, looking towards another 50 years of service to our community and the world. Why not, be part of this?
We meet 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month at the Lions Community Hall, 95 Lister St Sunnybank, 6.30 for 7pm.
Worldwide our 1.3 million men and women in 205 countries and geographic areas conduct vision and health screenings, build parks, support eye hospitals, award scholarships, assist youth, provide help in time of disaster and much more.
You name it, and a Lions Club, somewhere at some level has been involved in it.
Join us in making our communities and the world better places to live.
Becoming a Lion
Lions club members are men and women who strive to make a difference in their local community as well as in communities worldwide. Their volunteer efforts go beyond the support of vision care, to addressing unmet health and education needs worldwide.
