Glenside Lions News
Our newsletter ePride is published monthly with news of our Club activities and members’ news. We have Facebook pages for our Bookmart and Annual Art Show.
Glenside Lions have been very active during the past year. We have donated a total of $121,600 to our community and Lions projects. This is our commitment to our vision, ‘To be the global leader in community and humanitarian service’. This is also our contribution for this Lions Centennial year. #LIONS100 #WeServe
At our Club Handover dinner on 28th June incoming president John Varcoe presented the Melvin Jones Award to Lion Dennis Mattschoss and his partner Ann. Ann and Dennis spend much of their time and effort working at the Bookmart sorting and pricing books to get them ready for sale. Congratulations to Ann and Dennis. #LIONS100 #WeServe
Glenside Lions donated $3000 to Hutt Street Centre for their Winter Appeal in June. For every person facing homelessness, there is a story of heartbreak. There are hundreds of South Australians sleeping out in the depths of winter, because the world around them turned cold. They had jobs, families, a home and a place in the world. Now, warmth, love and purpose are gone from their lives, leaving only loneliness and despair. It may have been a sudden redundancy, a critically ill partner, domestic violence or the loss of a child. For many reasons, people experiencing homelessness have been forced into shocking, frightening circumstances.
Glenside Lions donated $2000 to Australian Lions Foundation in June. When disaster strikes the Australian Lions Foundation is amongst the first to offer disaster relief. When Cyclone Tracey decimated Darwin in 1974, to the devastating bushfires that impacted areas of South Australia and Victoria in 2015, the Australian Lions Foundation has been on the ground providing financial assistance and support to local communities in times of need.
Glenside Lions donated $15,000 in May to the 1st and 2nd Fullarton Scout Group for their building project.
They run a range of great programs for youth aged between 6 and 26, packed with fun, action, adventure, challenge and friends!
By joining Fullarton 1st/2nd Scout Group you are giving your children the opportunity for a fun, educational experience that forms a bridge between what they learn at home and at school. Scouts incorporate nature, adventure, challenge, citizenship, leadership, values and great fun.
It offers experience and challenge in a safe environment and fulfils a child’s natural urges to learn and explore. It develops skills, self-confidence, respect, and fosters attitudes that will benefit not only your children but the whole community.
