We are proud to be Lions Club members
The Ipswich Lions Club members are proud of their volunteer contribution to the local community a commitment that has continued through many activities for more than 50 years.
We have fun in our club. And when we meet fellow Lions for the first time, we treat them like old friends. We are kind and generous people who want to help, where ever and whenever we can.
We give 100 percent. We cover all costs from our own dues, ensuring that all donations and funds raised from the public go back into the community. We are proud to be members of an organization that is close to a century old and has a long and distinguished history of doing good work in the community.
Lions Clubs are involved in many activities.
There are many projects carried out by Lions. Some of the areas where Lions are active include Health, Youth, Vision, Hearing and Disabilities.
The Lions Lookout Tower was an early project of the Ipswich Lions Club. It is shown in the image at the top of this page. The work on the tower commenced in June 1969, it was built by the club members as a service to the City of Ipswich. The tower is still in use today.
A White Cane Dinner is held each year for blind people. The full cost of the dinner is paid for by the club. Support is often supplied for other organisations by doing a Bar-B-Que or sausage sizzle.
The image on the left is the Ipswich Lions Club banner which shows the industrial nature of the City of Ipswich and is the home of the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) base at Amberley.
Our members are men and women who care about their community and its people, we are just like you. We joined the Lions Club because we wanted to help.
