Welcome to the Lions Club of Munmorah Summerland Point Inc.
Our Club was chartered on 14 April 2008 and is situated on the Central Coast of NSW, approximately halfway between Sydney and Newcastle.
We are a relatively small club in numbers, 13 in all, but we are very close in friendship.
In the past twelve months we have lost two very dear members. One moved on to a mid north coast village and the other was our Dear Lion Joan who is now in a nursing home and will be celebrating her 99th birthday in December.
The months of January to December2017 saw our Lions working a BBQ at a local Bunnings.All our Lions chipped in and worked for a few hours. Not a super busy spot but handy to raise a few dollars for our activities account. We are fortunate to have a fine BBQ Chairman, Lion Peter.
Two of our Lions are off to Myanmar in January. This is their second service mission with "Digging Deep for Myanmar", a group who will erect some toilets and all the sanitation work that goes with it. This is for a very remote village where there is no sanitation at all and the villagers are quite impoverished.. We have made a considerable donation to support this project. On their last visit they constructed six toilets providing clean and hygienic facilities for around 30 families, new housing for a disabled woman and her small child and repairs to four other homes for needy families. They also undertook some computer training and distributed over 100kg of clothing, dental products, reading glasses and sporting equipment.
This month, November 2017, we have provided funds to Lake Munmorah Public School, St. Brendan's Catholic School and Lakes Grammar, An Anglican School. Funds to assist the schools provide for their Annual Presentation Days at year end.
Lion Errol and his team are hard at work beautifying Kanagra Drive. Partner Barbara is a tireless worker for the Community Garden and educating the children in horticulture.
Lions working in aged care; teaching at school; keeping a business running; busy with family; raising children, all busy in their own lives.
Children's handmades now go to Kaleidoscope Kids, a charity with connections to John Hunter Children's Hospital, women's refuges, children in need, Sexual assault victims, nursing homes and various others..
The members in this Lions Club have a combined total of 198 years of service volunteering.
