from the Auckland Flower Show 5th November 2008
Pride of Lions on the landscape
Fearing their roar hasnt been heard in a while,
the Lions Club will get in behind this years Auckland
Flower Show in a big way.
More than 300 Lions volunteers will take part in the
show as hosts and helpers. Members of the Lions
northern district, they will descend on Alexandra Park
for the 20-23 November event from as far afield as the
Far North and the Coromandel. According to the Vice
District Governor, Colin Twyman, the Lions have been
looking for an event they can embrace to re-establish
awareness of the clubs.
As a service club, were best known for
the major fundraising we used to do for the Telethons.
But that was some time ago, and while weve continued
to do good work in our communities, we havent
done a lot for our profile.
