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.
PRESIDENT'S REPORT - DECEMBER
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for the hard work and number of hours spent volunteering over the last 12 months, plus the support given to myself and the Board over the last 6 months.
I know a few things have changed, so I thank you for being accepting of these changes.
We are in a very busy time of year which can be both demanding and frustrating, trying to juggle both our Lions and family commitments, but with all your help, we will get through it.
A special thought to any of our Members who have health concerns at this time.
I would like to wish you all a Merry and Safe Christmas, plus a fantastic New Year.
SANTA VISITS JERICHO - TEWANTIN NOOSA LIONS CLUB
What would you say if I asked you to drive 900 km to deliver Christmas Packages?? Maybe some would say yes, but most of us would have an excuse.
These six dedicated caring Lions drove all the way from Tewantin to Jericho to deliver Christmas presents to local farmers and their families in Jericho west of Rockhampton. 1900 km there and back in just 5 days! They were also accompanied by 4 Members from the Emerald Lions Club on the last part of the journey.

Following the Classy Ladies Christmas event at The J in Noosa Heads, Tewantin Noosa Lions Club was offered the residual goods to take out to our drought adopted town of Jericho. Thank you to Lorraine Kenway, you are a very special lady.
Soon after they arrived, Lions started wrapping gifts for everyone. All food, toiletries and clothing were spread out on tables for people to take one of each item. The people were reticent at first but once they knew we were there to help them, they were indeed grateful. Some of their predicaments brought tears to the eyes of every Lion, but you have to give it them, they are battlers fighting on to beat the drought.
Wrapping Gifts, Gifts ready to go - Emerald & Tewantin Noosa Club Members
The residual goods were packed into 50 hampers for people on outlying properties, which the local policeman had arranged to be delivered. These people are doing it tough and deserve our help for which they are truly grateful.
Santa arrived on the local fire engine! Gifts for children were arranged in age groups with names attached and were presented to each child individually. All the children were well behaved and very well mannered. They were a credit to their families. It filled the Lions’ hearts with joy to see the happiest kids you could imagine. Each child received 3 presents.
The spirit of the community was something to behold, considering the trials and tribulations some are going through. The Lions were very humbled for the way that they were received by the locals, as they were held in very high esteem in the little local community in the outback.
All in all, it was a very successful trip and very rewarding and satisfying for all Lions in attendance.
THANK YOU TO ALL LIONS WHO TRAVELLED SO FAR.......YOU ARE LEGENDS!!!
MEMBERS CHRISTMAS LUNCH was fabulous at the Italian Marina Restaurant. Fantastic food, great company and much laughter.
