Beechworth Lions - provide a unique alternative to service club membership with an informal atmosphere and a real interest in sharing ideas and business networking.
We are no-fuss club for busy, working people. Although not big in numbers all our members are big in heart and put in 100 percent when asked.
We have a few interesting projects on the boil, and in keeping with the club ethic, they are humanitarian, fun and manageable.
Our last major activity was our "No Flies on Us" Expo and workshop in July 2019 helping eradicate Queensland Fruit Fly, and the completation and openng of our Beechworth Lions Club Memorial Walk at Lake Sambell. Our latest major project is "Stage 1, Rostoration of the Gang Plates Layers Cottage" in Harper Avenue which will be used, when completed, as a Community Hub for small groups. Beechworth Lions Club received a $20,000 "Stronger Community" Government grant to assit with this project. The work is in partnership with Indigo Shire Council, and Beechworth Correctional Centre.
We would love for you to join us if you have a little spare time and am interested in making a difference in your local community. Beechworth is currently trying to increase it's membership. Our current members do a great job but need your help.
Our meetings are currently held the First Wednesday of every month at the Hibernian Hotel, Camp Street, Beechworth, 6.45pm for 7pm start.
