TEWANTIN NOOSA LIONS CLUB is situated in Tewantin which is on the banks of the beautiful Noosa River, on the Sunshine Coast in sunny Queensland, Australia. We have been serving our community since the Club’s inception in 1967. The Lions are your friends and neighbours who have volunteered and reach out to many people in the community, who are underprivileged or in need of our help.
Tewantin Noosa Lions are a group of enthusiastic, extremely generous people, who care for others and work together expressing their individual skills in keeping the very complex business of serving the community in every possible way?
We meet regularly in a relaxed casual atmosphere at the Tewantin Noosa RSL every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month at 6 pm to discuss issues and address community needs where we can assist. We also enjoy the friendship and fellowship of other Club Members.
OUR NEW PRESIDENT FOR 2019-20
Incoming President Janelle McDonald’s Address
Thank you for electing me as your President for 2019-2020. Following on from Sheila is quite daunting. She has been an efficient and capable President and I congratulate her for all she has accomplished.
I am so grateful to have such a devoted Secretary as Vivien who is carrying on in the role this year. Thank you to all Board and club members who give their time freely in providing service to the community.
This year we will strive to maintain the high level of support for all our activities and raise funds for worthy causes, as well as the Lions Foundation projects.
We will continue to work in partnership with The Noosa Council, fellow Lions Clubs, Rotary and other groups.
My aim is to build a friendly and active club offering activities and projects of interest to everyone.
I am looking forward to hearing your ideas and concerns and ask for your help and support so that I can fulfil the goals of the Club.
