Lions Clubs Celebrate 75th Anniversary in Australia

EMU PLAINS, Cambridge Park, Penrith, Richmond, Mount Druitt and Nepal Himalaya Lions clubs gathered at Emu Plains Lions Park on Sunday 18th September, celebrating 75 wonderful years of Lions Club Australia with a community BBQ.

Melissa McIntosh MP, Federal member for Penrith, and Penrith City Mayor Tricia Hitchen were two of the special guests on the day.

“Thank you for your warm hospitality today, it’s this spirit that makes each Lions Club volunteer such a gift to our community,” said Mrs McIntosh.

“Here’s to 75 more years serving our community!”

Since the first Lions club was formed in Lismore in 1947, Lions Australia has grown to be Australia’s largest service club organisation, with a strong history in community service and commitment to improving the lives of others.
