The Lions Club of Blockhouse Bay-Lynfield held a Chinese New Year Dinner recently with guest speaker Tina Chen giving insight on traditions and customs and how families through the ages get together during the New Year.
During the dinner two new Lions Jenny and Ayushi were inducted with due ceremony to the club by District Global Membership Team Leader Ricky Singh.
Since the 40th anniversary celebrations last August, the club has been enjoying a renaissance with an influx of locals wishing to make the local and world community a better place. Like-minded people joining together with a common goal can achieve so much more than one alone.
Our local Lions support many initiatives to encourage youth, with school awards, speech and leadership competitions, sponsorship of worthy individuals and projects, help for children with mobility problems and now a Leo Club for students in a local school.
The club meets twice a month; one for business and planning, the other for dinner and fellowship. The Lions motto “We serve” is the same throughout over 200 countries.
